Two people have tested positive for the novel coronavirus in the remote Marshall Islands, a small Pacific nation that had been one of the few countries in the world without any cases. In proof that containment, diligent monitoring and testing are effective, the positive tests were of two U.S. military personnel who had just flown in from Hawaii and were still under quarantine, so they have never been in circulation since arriving.
