Received from City of Plano Media Relations March 18, 2020:

Collin County Health authorities have been notified that a 64-year-old Plano man who died in a local hospital last night from an underlying medical condition was infected with the COVID-19 virus. The positive case finding was confirmed after the man’s death, and he was not among the nine confirmed cases currently under monitoring by county public health officials. Due to the nature of how the case was reported to the county, health officials have not been able to confirm the cause of the man’s death, nor do they know if the man had come in contact with the virus locally or through travel.

Earlier in the day, Collin County Health Department confirmed Plano’s third positive COVID-19 case. The patient is a 32-year old female with no underlying health conditions. It was the ninth confirmed positive case in Collin County before the previously mentioned man passed.
