COVID-19 NH: Testing STILL NOT Available To All In N.H.; Even If You Are In Hospital!
Just to a very limited SUBSET.
So here is the kicker.
I heard from somebody who is IN HOSPITAL — at New Hampshire’s FAMED ‘Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center‘ (DHMC) in Lebanon. A research & teaching hospital no less. They don’t have enough tests. You have to meet the age or employment criteria or have symptoms. IF not, you can’t have it. That is STUPID. That is crazy.
I heard that New York is now doing a MILLION tests a week.
Well, a million tests would just about cover ALL of New Hampshire.
But, we don’t have enough tests!
And NOBODY is mentioning this.
I meet the over-60 criteria. So, I can get one.
I don’t want one. Don’t see the point. Right now, I have no symptoms.
They can tell me I am negative & I could be positive 24-hours later. I could have caught it by going for the test.
Would be SLIGHTLY more interested in the antibody test. But, even that, right now, would be a waste. I really haven’t had any symptoms. So, very UNLIKELY I had it without I realizing it. Given my age & poor heath, I would have KNOWN it even if I had a touch. So, I am not going to deprive a more worthy person from getting a test.
But, thought YOU should know.
