A patient who was being treated for COVID-19 at a Texas Center for Infectious Disease (TCID) facility ended up wandering through a mall for two hours after she was mistakenly released. In addition to wandering through the mall, officials have confirmed that the patient also went to a local hotel.

In a statement given by San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg, the patient wandered around the mall at around 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. CST after they were mistakenly released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Most of that time, she sat alone at the food court. In addition to this, the patient also went to a local hotel where she came into contact with at least 3 people. Despite this, officials claimed that the risk factor for spreading the disease was low.

“Today we learned that the CDC mistakenly released a patient from the Texas Center for Infectious Disease who later returned a positive COVID-19 reading,” wrote Nirenberg on Twitter.

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

Patient met the criteria for release
When asked why the patient was released from the TCID facility where she was being treated, the CDC stated that the patient had met all the criteria for release. This included two tests for the infection that came up negative. Prior to this, the patient had been confined for 12 hours after returning to the U.S. from a trip to Wuhan, China.

However, when the patient returned to the medical facility, a third test came up as weakly positive. As a result, the patient has once again been placed in isolation. According to Texas health officials, all three tests were conducted at the CDC’s headquarters in Atlanta.

According to the CDC, other facilities have encountered similar situations where test results have alternated between negative and positive. This is the reason why patients need to have two negative tests from specimens taken more than 24 hours apart. However, in this case, the mistakenly released patient had tested negative twice, before a third test came up as positive.
