One person hospitalized on the Mississippi Coast for COVID-19

BILOXI, Miss. (WXXV) — One person with COVID-19 has been hospitalized on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

That patient has since been moved to an isolated area of the hospital, where only a limited number of healthcare workers have access.

Merit Health said in a statement Wednesday, “Since identifying the patient as potentially having COVID-19, the individual has been separated from other patients in an appropriate infection isolation room which only a small team of caregivers can access. In coordination with the Department of Health, the patient remains in our care in isolation to avoid contact and exposure with other patients.”

The hospital says they are well prepared to support the patient during testing and treatment.
