First case of COVID-19 confirmed in Abilene

 

 

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – The first case of the COVID-19 has been confirmed in Abilene.

 

During a press conference Thursday morning, officials with Hendrick Medical Center and the City of Abilene said a patient that has been in quarantine that was highly suspected of having the virus had their test return positive around 7:30 a.m. 

 

The patient, identified as a 40-year-old-man, turned himself into the ER when he started showing symptoms and has been in quarantine ever since. 

 

Epidemiologists are now working to determine if the virus was contracted by travel or through the community and trying to trace where the victim went in the community. 

 

Health Department Director Annette Lerma says the patient has been notified, so anyone out there with a pending test shouldn’t worry if it’s them.
