Health authorities in Texas are investigating a suspected coronavirus case in a Texas A&M student, according to the local health department.
The student, who recently traveled to Wuhan, went to an emergency department yesterday with a cough and congestion.
“The patient we’re tracking had very mild symptoms,” Dr. Eric Wilke, of the Brazos County Health Department, said at a Thursday news conference.
The patient is in isolation at home as health care workers are performing tests to determine whether the student contracted the coronavirus. Wilke said the department expects to have results back from the CDC in Atlanta by Monday at the latest.
Should the case be confirmed, health officials will begin contact tracing to determine with which individuals he came in contact and whether to monitor them.
Wilke did not say whether the student lived on campus.
