The husband works at the Huanan Seafood Market, which has been linked to the outbreak, and was the first of the couple to exhibit symptoms.
Thai doctors diagnosed a Chinese traveller with mild pneumonia on 8 January which was later confirmed to have been caused by the so-called novel corona virus - which has already given rise to 41 pneumonia-like cases and one death in China.
The centre, which comes under the Ministry of Health's Preventive Medicine Department, said it would work closely with the World Health Organisation and global health organisations to monitor the development of the new strain of corona virus. When the 61-year-old woman arrived at the airport, she was found to have a fever, and she was taken to the hospital where she tested positive for 2019-nCoV.

The couple were last spotted together in October of a year ago , when Vanessa shared a photo of them together on Halloween . Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler have split after almost a decade together, according to a new report on January 14.
The WHO said it was preparing for the possibility that there could be a wider outbreak.
The prospect of human-to-human transmission of a new virus has put Thai authorities on alert.
Because the woman did not go to the wet market, she was either infected directly by her husband or by an item he brought home from the market, Cheung said. They added that the man worked at a local wholesale seafood market related to most of the patients, but his wife has not visited the place. But because the wife did not exhibit symptoms until days after her husband, it's also possible that he infected her. The World Health Organization and the Chinese authorities are taking measures to ensure that the disease does not spread. It then spread into over two dozen states, killing almost 800 people.
United States and China sign phase one of new trade deal
The deal also restores a twice-yearly dialogue process that previous administrations conducted regularly but that Trump scrapped. The "phase one" agreement loosens some US tariffs against China and secures new purchases of American-made items for Beijing.
The woman diagnosed in Thailand, who is now in a stable condition, had not reported visiting the seafood market, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Tuesday. Authorities didn't provide further details about the patient's background or how she may have contracted the illness.
Hong Kong health officials said they would also implement checks on passengers, and that they had stepped up the disinfection of trains and aeroplanes, AFP reported. Richard Brow, the agency's representative in Thailand, said anyone with a fever and cough who had spent time in Wuhan should be checked by a health worker.
Last week, Chinese state media announced that the cause of the illness "is believed to be a new type of coronavirus", according to experts.
