ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) -- Children's Healthcare of Atlanta confirmed their first patient with COVID-19 on Saturday.
The patient, 12-year old Emma, was immediately put into isolation, with CHOA following all necessary precautions as coordinated with the CDC, WHO, and other health organizations.
CBS46 spoke with Emma's cousin, a local Atlanta restauranteur, who gave a run down of what led up to her diagnosis. He mentioned that young Emma is in stable condition, and in the best hands possible to get her through this situation.
The team at Children’s began preparations for this potential situation long before the US had its first reported cases.
As with other hospital systems, CHOA is limiting visitors, postponing elective procedures, and have canceled non-urgent visits.
