We found out this week that my wife’s friend tested positive for covid. Since they hung out last weekend and we’re visiting family tomorrow, she
decided to get a rapid test. She went to a rapid testing site, waited in line for 3 hours and since she’s in education.
I’m going to condense the next 3 hours of craziness-
She first got a call saying she was positive. Then a call saying she was negative.
The 2nd call specified that she had the rapid test results. The first call did not. My wife asked her how she should know if she’s positive or
negative. The woman said “If you got a call that you were positive because they’re making those calls first.”, wife asked her to double check
both results and the woman said did not have access to those results. The anti-gen test was negative, supposedly she got a call for the PCR test
My wife asked for a hard copy (email) of the results, the woman told her “We do not give hard copies for positive results.” WTF?!
But that’s not the crazy sh*t.
An hour goes by and my wife is not satisfied with the results/behavior of the phone calls. She called the Broward Health Dept, who performed the
tests. After a few moments, a talk with a supervisor, this is what she was told by a rep-
“You’re negative in our system, that was for your anti-gen test. Your PCR results are still not in yet and won’t be until probably Tuesday
because of Thanksgiving. We think you got the first call from our contact tracer and he was just telling you that you were positive so you would stay
home because you had been in contact with someone who was positive in the last week. We’re sorry for the confusion and you’ll have your PCR tests
early next week.”
I’m overhearing this from 3’ away and watching my wife’s eyes bulge out of her head. She told the woman, “No, this guy told me flat out
“I’m calling with your test results, you’re positive.”, so I want you to clarify what you just told me. That does not make sense to me.” The
woman basically repeated herself with a couple different words.
Dude.....are you f*cking serious?! Telling people they’re positive without even looking at results?!?!?!
I haven’t doubted there were some shenanigans going on with this sh*t, but none of us really know the actual extent, just some hypothesis and surely
out there some of those are correct. I don’t know what aspect works in the benefit of those who want to inflate this, unless this same dipsh*t is
the one sending in the numbers.
We were planning on seeing our friends and family tomorrow, but there’s enough medical issues between the two different groups that we’re not
going to bother over the confusion. We’re both certainly not nervous over getting/having it ourselves, but my father checks every box of someone who
would die of covid; type II diabetics, overweight, has had multiple surgeries on his chest/lungs, cancer survivor, terrible diet, etc.
Sure, maybe someone just f*cked up and we’re blowing it out of proportion, but if that’s their standard operating procedure they need to be kicked
in the f*ckin’ ass.
