Maybe she knew, but no reason for her to tell me or anyone that her husband got the virus which is stigmatized. I think the treating doctor is obliged to tell her husband about the risk of transmitting to her and he/she might have done the duties.
However, no matter she knew or not, or with any goodwill, an informatician has no duties to release any information of the patient to anyone without consent or request by the patient. The obligation of informatician is to protect personal data by referring to the principle of information privacy and disposition.
