Default One test per family rule

A couple who are friends of mine in New Jersey both got it. They are fine now. They are about 50 though. She was tested first and was positive. They would not test him! One test per family rule! He had the same thing she had, so... Make your own conclusions.

Hopefully they will come up with a test to figure out who has had it and therefore probably, as of today's information, can't get it again. Then those people can help on the front lines without too much risk. Being retired, if I got through the virus, I would go volunteer at a hospital....
Good luck to all of us! I am self isolating as well. As usual, that's my two cents, it's worth what you paid for it...

Ps. This is the opportune time for the world to unite. It's not what the Chinese / Italians / (other country) did or didn't do, it's what we can all do to stop mother nature from weeding us out!

The virtual Dr service was very good , kept in touch and gave instructions. The blood draw next week should reveal/confirm virus-free state and hopefully plasma can be used to help others.Plasma Donations from Recovered COVID-19 Patients

What you’re missing is there are not enough test kits and he had hallmark symptoms of COVID-19.

China needs to be held accountable. They don’t get free pass. Italians are victims like the rest of the world. Yes, the the world needs to come together and ask the question? Is near slave labor worth it for profit? Business IMO need to get out of China if they won’t change the way they pollute rest of the world with majority of viruses either by accident or on purpose.

Snopes says this is misinformation: Did Johns Hopkins Publish This 'Excellent Summary' of COVID-19 Advice?

I do not understand why you came under attack, but it is not the first time I have seen that happen around here. No wonder so many are unwilling to post. I appreciate your doing so. I consider what you did as a public service. My thanks.

I wish you and yours the best of health going forward.

To grahambda, thanks so much for sharing your story. Along with a lot of info, it points out how slowly FL is progressing with testing. If 106,000 tests have been performed on a population of 21.5 million people, the % of population tested is approx 1/2 %.

That’s what you took away from this heartfelt post?
