Coronavirus patient mistakenly released from disease center

SAN ANTONIO – A patient was mistakenly released from the Texas Center of Infectious Disease facility over the weekend. Officials say the patient was released because she initially met the criteria for release with two negative test results for the contagious disease.

Mayor Ron Nirenberg released a brief statement in regards to the incident, saying, 

“The fact that the CDC allowed the public to be exposed to a patient with positive COVID-19 reading is unacceptable,” 

During his press conference, he says the patient visited the local mall on Saturday afternoon around 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and mainly sat within the food court area. She was also noted to have gone to a local hotel. At the hotel, it is believed that she came in contact with at least three people who will now need to be tested.

An urgent retesting will be performed on the patient.
