Centre County’s First Case Of Coronavirus Reported
Update, 2:30 p.m.: Two patients within Mount Nittany Health’s system have also tested positive for the coronavirus and are currently in isolation at home.
“Our team of expert healthcare providers, staff, and multidisciplinary Preparedness and Response Team have been carefully preparing for this and expecting this day to come,” Dr. Nirmal Joshi, Mount Nittany Health System’s chief medical officer said in a statement. “As always, the safety of our patients, staff and community remains our highest priority.”
According to spokeswoman Anissa Ilie, Department of Health reports of positive test results list the patient’s county of permanent residence, not where they were tested. It’s unclear at this time where the patients reside.
Original Story: Centre County has reported its first case of coronavirus according to the Pennsylvania Health Department’s website. Neither an exact location within the county nor information about the patient was immediately available.
There are now at least 268 cases of coronavirus in Pennsylvania. Centre County’s first reported case comes exactly two weeks after the state had its first one. Many of the reported cases in the state seem to be located outside of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, as no counties neighboring Centre County have reported any yet.
