A group of people living in a country club apartment in the United States may have been exposed to the coronavirus, an
from Wired magazine says.
The article says the owners of the three-bedroom apartment in Augusta, Georgia, may have shared their bed for three days after a resident in the apartment fell ill.
According to the article, a resident who had not been tested for coronaviruses on a previous visit to Augusta told the residents that they had been sleeping in a bunk bed for several days.
The article says that if the person had been tested before the fall, the person might have been able to show a higher degree of immunity to the virus.
In a statement, Augusta police told Wired that they were aware of the report.
“While we do not have any specific information to share, we are conducting an ongoing investigation and will respond to the information at the appropriate time,” they said.
A spokesperson for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it had not yet received the article.
The CDC has not confirmed the story.
“While we are not aware of any reports of individuals sharing beds, we have an ongoing effort to educate the public about the importance of sharing beds,” the spokesperson said in a statement.
