Chloe Lanier (Nelle, GH) shared in an Instagram story that she is exhibiting signs of being infected the Coronavirus, but was turned away from a hospital due to a scarcity of tests. She wrote, “On Saturday, the first day of my quarantine, I developed a mild cough that eventually turned into a runny nose and fever. Aches/chills then made their way into the picture. Called my doctor. Had a Skype att with them and they said because I didn’t hit all the symptoms laid out by the CDC, they could not test me. Then last night came the chest pain and shortness of breath. I went to the ER today where they again refused to test me because I’m young and there are very few tests to go around. The doctor said I ‘probably have’ but because of my age and overall health otherwise, I should continue to self isolate. I’m saddened because there are countless people who are being turned away from getting tests that could be infecting others who are more vulnerable. I hope this changes. I hope more tests because available in this country — and not only for the 1%. We need to take care of one another. I love you all. I’m going to binge a few shows, read, and rest up. Please stay inside and don’t take this situation lightly.”
