I work in medical coding and specifically I code for ICU and pulmonary doctors. The hospitals I code for seem to have increased their testing and are getting the results back much faster than a week ago at least in the charlotte area. Last week I was seeing patients that had been admitted almost a week before they finally had results back, now the turn around seems to be a day in most cases. They are testing anyone with flu like symptoms or in respiratory distress. I know this is just anecdotal but at least in the charlotte area hospitals they seem to be getting much better with frequency and turnaround in testing.

I think the more rural areas are where the testing is tougher and more restrictive.  Major hospitals and cities do seem to finally be getting up to speed. 

But we really need to be ramped up more like the S Korea model where we are testing more of the non-symptomatic people.   We aren’t doing that really anywhere.

only when it threatens a certain class of people. end of story. these people didn’t give a poo about the aids epidemic. many thought the victims deserved it. the difference? the rich didn’t feel threatened by it. it’s time to stop letting the rich decide who lives and who dies cwg. and that starts with this primary. the “opposition” party is hellbent on nominating a politician bought and paid for by pharmaceuticals who has vowed to veto medicare for all. should we continue to let the rich decide who’s worth saving, when that always, always means themselves and no one else? or should we do something about it?

We all know you won't do anything ... ever, other than retweet. Really do think you're a bot.

A week to get results is nearly useless, you almost shouldn't even bother at that point.

One day is better in comparison yeah, but it's still far behind what other countries have had for weeks now.

We'd all like it to be faster, but its crazy to say waiting a week for results means people shouldn't even bother.

Based on everything I’ve read I think we’re gonna see 5k-10k deaths a day for awhile. This is not counting people who die for other reasons because they can’t get treatment for stuff. The numbers are gonna be shocking and really fuging scary for a minute.

We just saw over 1k deaths yesterday and this really hasn’t ramped up yet. Florida is gonna get fuged up bad especially.

My friend is a private cook for rich people’s boats. Got fired because of this and got a quick apartment in New Orleans parish where the cases are concentrated. I just got off the phone with him. He said it is completely fuged there from what he’s seen and heard from other folks.

he thinks he got it back in late February. Was sick for 12 days. Had all the symptoms and was hospitalized. Said it took him a month to feel back to normal. Never got a test.

a lot of people are dying in this country with cause of death reported as acute respiratory distress syndrome or pneumonia. the number of deaths, no matter what the final total might say, is going to be massively underreported. im in nc and i heard from healthcare professionals that their hospital was slammed back when their county was only reporting in the single digits and i’ve heard elsewhere that people dying before their tests come back aren’t being included in the death count in some places.

i think people were right when they said that the government was covering its ass when they began to accuse the chinese government of under reporting cases. but i also think that was massive projection. we’re already doing it.
