Well I had no idea that it was still around, so color me surprised.
The "antibiotics first, tests second" idea reminds me of what they did when I was bit by a dog. Since there was no way to guarantee that the dog
wasn't infected with rabies when I went to the hospital, they immediately started the rabies vaccine. Since its a series of vaccines (at least here
in the US, I won't assume the same for the rest of the world, even though it probably is incredibly similar), they could just stop the doses later
once tests confirmed the dog was rabies-free. Sadly, they never found the dog (sad for him, as he had been hit by a car and ran off after he bit me),
and I ended up developing a nasty allergy to the drug.
That's just what immediately popped into my head. I hope the guy will be ok.
