First “Presumptive Positive” Coronavirus Case in Missouri

The first case of a presumptive positive Coronavirus test in Missouri is announced.

Governor Mike Parson in a press conference last (Saturday) night says the first case to test presumptive positive in Missouri is in St. Louis County and stems from travel.

A woman in her twenties recently traveled to Italy.

She and family members are isolated at home.

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services has tested a total of 26 individuals for COVID-19, including this presumptive positive case–which has been sent to the CDC for further testing.

Three more tests remain in progress.
