Woman diagnosed with COVID-19 didn’t inform authorities that she was infected

The 48-year-old woman who was diagnosed with COVID-19 in Moldova took the plane from Milan to Chisinau on March 7 without informing the authorities that she was infected.

In the meeting of the National Extraordinary Public Health Commission on March 8, Minister of Health, Labor and Social Protection Viorica Dumbrăveanu said the woman went to see a doctor first on February 28, when she had fever. Cough appeared later and on March 4 she went to the hospital in a serious state. Doctors prescribed antibiotics to her. The woman decided to return to Moldova without presenting information about her state to flight attendants or the Border Police, IPN reports.

Currently, the woman is in a strategic medical institution. She is in a stable, but serious state owing to a number of diseases from which she suffers, such as bilateral bronchopneumonia, diabetes mellitus, and hypertension. Doctors are making effort to save her life.

There were 145 passengers on the plane by which the woman returned to the country. The persons with a high risk of catching the virus, who sat close to the woman in the plane, were also contacted and informed about this case, being treated as suspected cases. During the night, 45 people from the same flight were called and informed that they must stay at home in quarantine for 14 days. The family doctors were notified of these persons so that they supervise them.
