Dr. Martha Cano says she would never have imagined that after beating COVID-19 she would test positive for the virus a second time.

“It’s surprising and disheartning but I am still trying to make sense of the science behind it.”

Dr. Martha Cano

Martha Cano is a family doctor in Weslaco. Nearly three months after beating COVID-19 in mid-April, she faces a second battle with this virus. Although her symptoms are not so severe, she says it was very disappointing hearing she caught the virus a second time. Cano says her diagnosis surprised her as she was constantly taking extra precautions and frequently disinfecting.
