If you're concerned about the possibility of the coronavirus coming to Texas, your concerns are valid. It looks like it's happening.
The Brazos County Health District is investigating a possible case near College Station involving a Texas A&M University student.
The unidentified patient recently traveled from Wuhan, China, where the current coronavirus outbreak originated, back to Brazos County but authorities have declined to provide a specific timeline for his travels.
Dr. Eric Wilke of the Brazos County Health Authority said in a news conference the middle-aged man went to a local hospital on Wednesday evening after he developed mild symptoms.
Authorities said the patient was self-isolating at his home and is "doing well" but did not say where he lives or if he's got family, kids or roommates, citing privacy concerns.
Local health officials would not say which hospital the patient went to but said they don’t believe anyone there in the emergency room was exposed.
