Erie County Botched Its First Virus Case Big Time

https://www.erienewsnow.com/story/41...ndled-properly


UPDATE (3/19 1:10 p.m.) Erie County's Director of Health Melissa Lyon admitted the county's first case of COVID-19 was not handled properly during a news conference Thursday afternoon.




Lyon said proper precautions were not taken when the sample was taken, increasing the possibility of exposure to medical professionals. This includes not using the proper technique, not maintaining the proper distance from the patient, and not using the proper personal protection equipment.




The person who was tested at their primary physician's office was not informed to self-quarantine until the test results come back positive. Lyon said the person is believed to have stayed home while symptomatic and did not return to the community after feeling better.




The Health Department was not initially notified the person was tested for the coronavirus. They are still trying to determine how many people may have been potentially exposed and follow up with them.

Erie county pa has its second case of the virus. this person was on a cruise ship and travel to other parts of the US when they got off the ship. came back to Erie and for some reason got tested. County executive said we do not have a community spread as the person contracted it elsewhere.
OK...so where did this person go once they got back to Erie before being tested ? you are contagious before symptoms show, right ? people need more info. the county executive said they cant say more than that due to state regulations and privacy concerns...i call --...very, very big pile of steaming --


we have a right to know what stores this person visited so we can be more vigilant. by not releasing more info they are helping this spread.
