    Problem is, most American’s can not afford to assume they have it and take 2 weeks off, and pretty much any employer isn’t going to excuse the absence without a doctor saying that it is Covid-19, so testing needs to be done.

      I keep forgetting a lot of people still have to go into work, Im lucky both my parents can work from home, also my sister has a lowered immune system so she can NOT get it

    • Trump made it so employers are forced to pay you for atleast 2 weeks if you have symptoms. That’s why alot of employers laid off employees immediately and so they could file for unemployment earlier

  11. What if you work in an essential service that will remove your medical after so many days of not working without testing and your symptoms are too mild to get a test!? I feel that they should mandate that essential service people can’t lose their benefits if they go on leave due to any symptoms or any doctors notes pertaining to them. Otherwise we’re just spreading the virus and costing this nation more than we short sighted trying to save in business or corporate costs…

      This is why testing should be quick and free. So, test yourself , bribg paper to your employer and act wisely.

    Nah. Nothing special. It always was like that – you are sick? stay home. Nothing new under the sky. But, if you don’t feel sick, enjoy your life and go to work to revive the economy.

    Follow this recipe and then you’ll thank me.
    Put in your LARGE teapot these:
    A tablespoon of Carcade (Hibiscus)
    Squeeze a half of an average size lemon into it
    Squeeze about 3-5 gr of ginger root into the pot
    Add the hot water. Let it stay for 10-15 min. Drink as tea with NATURAL HONEY.

  17. How long does it last on average and general duration range?

  18. I’ve been sick for 5 days, does that mean i have covid? I don’t even go out
