After Birthday Party, 18 Family Members Test Positive for COVID

An ambulance drives through the Texas Medical Center Thursday

Barbosa says his nephew, unknowingly infected with the virus, hosted the gathering of 25 people. Barbosa said, "It was only a couple of hours". Barbosa says his parents, who are in their 80s, and his sister, who has breast cancer, are still hospitalized nearly a month after the May 30 party, but other relatives are recovering.

Some firefighters who recovered from COVID-19 responded to Barbosa's plea on Facebook and offered to donate their blood plasma, but doctors said they could not do so for a single individual since there is a massive shortage of the antibodies.

Barbosa told WFAA that the party had followed current state health regulations, but he and his wife didn't go to the party as a precaution during the coronavirus pandemic.

Rob Barbosa said that only seven of his family members who attended the May 30 bash for his daughter-in-law's 30th contracted the bug, but then took it home and infected almost a dozen others, KHOU-TV reported Thursday.

COVID-19 infected 18 members of a family in Texas after they went to a birthday party of one relative. "I imply this entire time this has been happening we've been terrified". She was hospitalized a week later and has since returned home, according to a Facebook page set up by the family.

"Prayers were answered today, " he wrote. "They're saying this is one of the last straws for my dad". Barbosa is an EMT who is also married to a physician, and says they knew the risks of gathering together and avoided attending due to safety reasons. "Now [Frank] needs to get well for mom and the Barbosa Family".

The Barbosa family isn't completely sure if the spread stemmed from the May 30 celebration, but they believe that the timeline of symptoms suggests family members were infected then.

Two young children were among those infected, though most of the family has since recovered. And by the 9th, people are getting really, really bad. In Shasta County, California, 13 people who attended a large family party tested positive for coronavirus.

On Wednesday, Abbott had told local television station KFDA that the state is struggling to control a "massive" outbreak of new coronavirus cases.

Texas was one of the earliest states to ease stay-at-home restrictions and as a result, it has seen an exponential spike in new coronavirus cases this month.
