Two people in New Hampshire who were being monitored for coronavirus have both tested negative and have fully recovered, according to state health officials.

The two people being monitored had recently traveled to China before developing fever and respiratory symptoms. They were held in isolation while they awaited test results from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

On Thursday, their results came back negative, meaning there have been no confirmed coronavirus cases identified in New Hampshire. Six cases have been confirmed elsewhere in the United States.

State health officials say the risk of contracting coronavirus in the U.S. remains low. Still, they're asking healthcare providers in the state to remain vigilant for any future potential incidents.

Worldwide, more than 7,700 people have contracted coronavirus and 170 have died.
