“I don't think that many people are aware of the fact that they're actively not testing people for COVID-19, even people who have travel history to high-risk place”
WTF this is NOT the time to be an ostrich, cant bury human lives like this 🤯🤯🤯 https://t.co/IjbQRhvIsX
I vote everyone who feels they need to get tested, show up and say they've visited impacted countries or folks coming from there. If they're going to refuse to do their job as a governmental organization, it's our collective time to step up and do what we need to do to get tested.
They clearly don't care about your health, why care about their arbitrary stipulation?
Same thing happened to a Vietnamese guy in San Francisco. He got off a plane and told airport staffs that he did not feel well. They let him through the gate and he went home to self quarantine. This was posted on my facebook feed.
NYC resident here. This past Monday I had a fever and a severe stomach pain out of nowhere so I went to the ER. My workplace is mostly Asian and being a Chinese American myself I wanted to get tested for coronavirus asap. However they said I can't unless my lung is failing and I have relatives that just came back from China, and the testing kit would take a week to get approved and arrive at my local hospital. By then I'm pretty sure I'll be dead. I joined this subreddit immediately and realized how oblivious everyone is in NYC. This is truly terrifying.
I am in Australia. My daughter has school friends who came back from China to resume school. They were asked to self-quarantine for 2 weeks before resuming. We have just completed week 5 of the school year. This last week I had headache, sore throat and ears. The usual prodrome for cold and flu. I rang the government hotline for Coronavirus. They took my details including age, name and address and perhaps a bit of background. I rang because of reading of the people being asymptomatic and passing it on. I could conceive that both my daughter and her friend are young and fit and not show symptoms. The government was not interested in testing me. We chatted a little but she thought it wasn't worth going further with investigations.
Our Prime Minister revealed a response plan yesterday and we are on alert
Tbf, there is no source for that story.
I understand not wanting personal details on Reddit or the internet in general, but there are definitely ways to prove he’s telling the truth while staying anonymous.
I believe NYC has the virus because statistically how can it not? But, if I were to have this happen to me I’d definitely want some coverage.
Just read that NY is now developing their own test kits. Makes complete sense after reading this. Why rely on anyone else when you have some of the best doctors and facilities in the world at the ready..
Can you link the quote because I dont believe that's what he said. I'm 99% certain he said the dems were taking advantage of a crisis to hurt the president, which is probably true considering they have been doing anything and everything to make him look bad.
But please quote the entoreiry of the relevant conversation, I'd love to see it.
Not sure how accurate this article is, but it looks like the CDC limits which labs can do testing. That's why New York is pushing to get their own testing done.
In addition, the FDA began expedited approval of kits starting Feb 5, so the US has had limited time to make them. (The FDA approves the use of kits whether they're from other countries or made in USA)
