SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - A San Diego businessman said he has placed himself under a voluntary quarantine after a recent trip to China.

David Du works in San Diego but had spent most of January traveling in Vietnam and China.

Du told 10News he felt no symptoms when he returned last week, but he felt compelled to complete a voluntary, two-week quarantine in his own home.

While in China, he spent time in Sanya, a city on Hainan Island in southern China. He also spent time in Sanming in the Fujian Province.

As of Monday, according to a database maintained by researchers at Johns Hopkins University, there had been 79 reported cases of the coronavirus in Hainan and 179 cases in Fujian.

The CDC is screening all travelers coming into the United States from China. They will all be monitored for a 14-day period.
