State governments are working to contain the spread of the coronavirus in the US, as federal officials say more testing for the illness will likely see the number of known cases increase.

There were at least 377 cases and 17 deaths in the United States as of Saturday morning, with at least 80 cases and 14 deaths in Washington state alone. That national figure includes 307 people diagnosed through the US public health system, and 70 people repatriated to the US -- 46 from the Diamond Princess cruise ship, 21 from the Grand Princess cruise ship, and three from China.

As of Saturday no cases have been reported in Montana or Wyoming.

Here are the reported cases in each state, not including the people who were repatriated.
