Yeah, that title is confusing.

I’ll sum up.
My wife’s cousin, Male mid 30’s, has been in the hospital since Wednesday.
Fever, trouble breathing, believe also phenomena.

He was born with a heart issue that wasn’t diagnosed until his mid 20’s after failing health.
Heart surgery was preformed in an attempt repair a hole in his heart.
He hasn’t been in good health since then and would be very wise to avoid covid 19.

I can’t give to many specific details on his existing health problems because I just don’t have all those details.
Not really important to my post anyway.

He hasn’t been diagnosed with covid 19 as of yet.
The hospital is treating him with medication for a covid patient which does make sense I suppose.
Treat any virus with similar anti viral meds.. yeah ok.

But here’s the kickers..

He’s been reported as a covid 19 patient.
They said his healthcare would be free.

So how can we believe in the numbers being reported?
Is this about getting paid?
Is this about boosting the numbers?

It’s funked up either way.

Sorry for your family.

Next week I find out if I have cancer.

But it'll probably be Covid.

When you say hasn't been diagnosed as COVID-19 yet, do you mean that the test results haven't come back from the lab?

The doctors have other concerns than the way mortality statistics look.

Otherwise, "Cause of Death - Autopsy" might become far too common.

Doctors and nurses had been attending so many Coronavirus patients that they can tell by eye if someone is a positive.

They know the test is not reliable.

Correct. The results are not back yet.
They are calling it covid 19 on the paperwork.

I can't say either way honestly but I know that the hospitals in my area are not treating many covid patients.

They cleared out our local children's hospital. It's a nonprofit. They were preparing for the plague, and now they have no virus patients. I think they've maybe seen one, and they're in the urban core where they have high numbers of cases.

A couple days ago, they laid off over 600, and we're a major metro.

Took my son into one of the children's hospitals where I live for an X-ray on Monday. We had to enter through the ER, it was the only entrance open. Of course, it was completely dead. Staff was pretty much rolling their eyes when I asked if they've had any COVID-19 patients or struggling in any way. No...they've had no COVID-19 patients. The only issue I consistently heard was that people were stealing any hand sanitizer not attached to a wall. I do not know if that meant staff or patients/visitors.

We were in and out in 15 minutes.

That's because for the most part, it's extremely rare for kids to get seriously ill from this. It's a major headline for one to die of it.

I wish a speedy recovery.

In the meantime, listen to the end of this I just found.

It's called "clinical diagnosis." A lot of places use it... they have to have some record of what they are treating to determine a methodology of treatment, so if someone comes in exhibiting symptoms consistent with a known epidemic, they assume it is that epidemic until labs prove otherwise.

Happens with the flu all the time... there's a local outbreak of flu, someone comes in with flu-like symptoms, and they are immediately diagnosed clinically with the flu.

That said, the numbers are definitely skewed. Once the tests come back, the diagnosis should be officially changed to either WuFlu (if positive) or influenza if negative. There's where things can get messed up, if the official diagnosis is not changed, or if someone with co-morbidities is still diagnosed with WuFlu despite the WuFlu being a relatiely minor factor in the hospitalization.

The best to your wife's cousin.

I triage patients everyday. My thing and I'm good at it in Emerg.

When a pandemic hits...everyone, living, injured, sick...has to be assumed infected. We really have to do that for protection when there are just too many...and we cannot test all.

To tell the truth, if we had gotten a call over the last several years stating he had died it would not have been a huge surprise.
