From a friend who’s a doctor in South Florida:
The Covid 19 situation is ridiculous.
I have had multiple people tell me that they made an appointment to get tested, got to the lab, saw how long the line was and left. Then three days later they are called to say that the test (which they never took) was positive.
This happened many, many times at different state labs.
I have friends in the hospitals telling me that they code admissions with a positive Covid diagnosis because they get reimbursed higher from the insurance companies.
