Second Indiana Resident Tests Positive For Coronavirus
Monday, March 9, 2020

Following Friday's shocking announcement from the Indiana State Department of Health, a second person in Indiana has tested positive for Coronavirus after traveling to Boston to attend a biotech firm’s meeting, as state officials reported on Sunday.

The adult, who lives in Hendricks County, attended a meeting for Biogen Inc. last month and “developed mild flu-like symptoms” days later, according to the Indiana State Department of Health.

The person is in isolation and not being hospitalized. State officials said several COVID-19 cases have been tied to the Boston meeting, including a Marion County resident identified Friday as Indiana’s first case.

State Health Commissioner Dr. Kris Box said in a statement that he is urging the state’s residents to take ”common-sense precautions″ and educate themselves about the virus.

Worldwide, the virus has infected more than 100,000 people and killed more than 3,400, the vast majority of them in China. Most cases have been mild, and more than half of those infected have recovered.
