An unidentified young woman in Newark, which is New Jersey’s largest city population-wise, and sits about 10.6 miles outside Manhattan, is posing a “public health risk” and remains “at large” in the community after testing positive for the coronavirus, the mayor said Tuesday.
In a video press conference, Mayor Ras Baraka, a Democrat, said the unidentified woman arrived at East Orange General Hospital on Saturday, underwent a COVID-19 test, provided a false name and address and left.
The test result later came back positive, and city health officials arrived to the address provided to notify her that she needed to come in for treatment. That’s when officials realized the woman at the hospital had lied about her identity and residence.
“This person is a public health risk to herself and the entire community,” Baraka said. “At this point, we still have no knowledge of who this individual is.”
The city is seeking a court order to get the hospital to release surveillance video to help police identify the woman. The Newark Police Department is working to get more information from hospital staff about the incident and the mystery woman.

Lots of this going on. I know someone who is from China but now a US citizen. Her husband works in a hospital.
She came to work sick in an office with a mask on. They told her to go home but she refused. Something about she didn't want to be stigmatized as a sick Chinese person....blah blah. I think they eventually forced her to go home but just an idiot. She may or may not have had it but screw everyone else. Totally selfish. Nobody cared about her being from China. Just go home and stop being an A!@hole.
