The Ohio Department of Health is investigating two suspected coronavirus cases found in Ohio.

According to ODH, the cases involve two students at Miami University in southern Ohio.

Health officials say both students recently traveled to and returned from China. The students have been tested for the disease and health officials hope to have results back by the end of the week.

Both students have been isolated to prevent the disease from spreading.

U.S. health officials are currently monitoring 110 people across 26 states for the coronavirus, including five patients who contracted the deadly infection in China and brought it back to America.

The risk to the public right now is still considered low, the CDC says.
