Yeah, they are having a real problem prioritizing the right tests.For crying out loud... "due to extreme demand on laboratories your test could take up to 6 additional days to complete".
I don't see much point in this "contact tracing" program the government and big tech have rolled out, if they can't even get the triage in the testing protocols done right.
Just a week and a half a ago, my kid's two best friends came down with something awful, we all "assume" it is the 'rona. But who can be sure? They wanted to get tested. . . but you know, they were having the same issue getting tested as your wife.
Which honestly, I don't get. Both of them are essential workers and had no problem getting tested before they started their jobs. . . but getting tested once they get sick is a problem? WTF?!
If I were the paranoid type, I would say the establishment is trying to get this thing to spread.
So, obviously since my kid had contact with his buddies several weeks ago, he now wants a test. And yup, you are right, with out a prescription and some severe symptoms, good luck at that. The best course of action is to just sequester yourself. However, he can't do that, he is an essential worker, so they just take his temp., and off to work he goes.
. . . so that leads me back to these dumb ass "contact tracing apps." WHY?! WHY & HOW?! If folks can't find out for sure if they have had it, what the hell is the point?
It seems like the test is given priority to those starting or doing some sort of work to keep the economy rolling, or government workers, everyone else, it is just a crap shoot. There is no triage on rushing the importance on these tests on the folks that really need them done, immediately, to stop the spread.
The government and health community is NOT taking this disease as seriously as the propaganda on the TEE VEE is making it out to be, that is for sure. By the time you get your results back, if you even get the opportunity to get tested, you have either been in quarantine and are nearly over it, or happen to be the .005 percent that needs to be hauled off to the ER.
. . . and blaming it on this, or that politician? Insanity.
