And in all of this how is everyone doing? I hope you’re all doing well.
My husband and I aren’t working as of this week. Hollywood (entertainment industry) is shut down. My friends are slowly being laid off. This is going to be really tough for a lot people.
Meanwhile, just read today the FDA announced it has authorized the use of the first rapid diagnostic test that could detect the novel coronavirus in 45 minutes. An article I read yesterday said the municiple health system has told its staff they’re abandoning hope of containing the virus outbreak and instructed doctors not to bother testing symptomatic patients if a positive result won’t change the way they’ll be treated. This decision was made based on the overwhelming amount of patients and shortage of tests. Maybe this test that was just approved will change this decision. It’s a little disconcerting that there would be no testing at all. How else can you determine how bad it really is? It has only just gotten started. It’ll get worse before it gets better. I’m keeping my head about it. I’m not getting all the panic buying. People have lost their collective minds.
