Success With Early COVID Patient

Hear Lt. Chris Hernandez’ story

Lt. Chris Hernandez was amongst the thousands to attend the Houston Livestock and Rodeo Barbecue Cook-off. 11 days later, Lt. Hernandez was placed on a ventilator after testing positive for COVID-19.

The Patton Village Police Lieutenant and married father of three felt feverish. He headed up the stairs to take a cold bath. However, as he got to the top of the stairs, he wondered, "what's wrong with me?" as he gasped for air. He didn't realize what he was fighting, and he didn't know he would shut down a city. In episode 1 of TESTED, hear Lt. Hernandez's story and medical professionals' response to the beginning of the pandemic and the first confirmed case of community spread in the Houston area.
