The index case of COVID-19 in Northeastern Iran

Abstract

The index case of COVID-19 in Sabzevar, Khorasan Razavi Province in northeastern Iran, was an 80-year-old man with a history of psycho-neurological illness and acute respiratory clinical symptoms, and a history of travel to areas with confirmed COVID-19 cases in Gorgan City. He was identified on February 16, 2020, and his laboratory diagnosis was made on February 26, 2020. The patient was hospitalized and discharged after complete recovery. The contacts of the patient were traced, revealing the infection of his 30-year-old son with milder symptoms of COVID-19, which was confirmed through a laboratory test on April 4, 2020 and was recommended for home quarantine. Other family members had no signs of COVID-19.
