Everyone! Do you know what to do if you think you have COVID-19?
Do you know what to do if you think you have COVID-19?
With the news broadcasting stories each day featuring COVID-19 patients calling ambulances and then dying because no hospital could be found, it is easy to become worried about what you should do.
Also, even if your condition isn’t bad enough to require an ambulance, just having an elevated temperature of 38.5 degrees Celsius for two successive days is enough to make you worried as well, no?
Allow me to give an answer of my own.
First, when you call an ambulance and get in, you will be asked, “Where is your regular hospital?” Without this, when you arrive at a hospital, that hospital might be full and unable to receive you. You will then be passed around to other hospitals.
Also, before the hospital can recognize the severity of your condition, you will be asked, “Have you had a PCR test?” It doesn’t matter if you have test results from Shinbashi or Shinjuku. These are not official results. Therefore, when you are suffering, you should go to a hospital that supports official PCR testing and that accepts COVID-19 patients.
I won’t list such hospitals here, but please look them up yourself.
Also, even if you know this, you will not be admitted.
The reason is…
They won’t receive you because it’s not your “regular” hospital!
If you’re normally healthy, once you have been infected with COVID-19, you’re likely to die a desperate death, abandoned by the roadside!
To be admitted to a hospital, you need to meet all of the following three conditions: (a) you have a patient’s registration ticket for your regular hospital, (b) the hospital supports official PCR testing, and (c) the hospital has beds prepared for serious COVID-19 patients.
This, I feel, is how much of an imminent danger COVID-19 is!
This is an “etiquette mask” that I came up with. It is to be worn after receiving a vaccination. It is made with a high-grade material that supports facial recognition.
