"Katie Porter Just Made the CDC Chief Promise Free Coronavirus Tests for All Americans"
So part of the problem is solved, assuming the Chief is good to his word.

Katie Porter is a hero. I'm afraid that the hard-fought-for promise may require more hard fighting to assure it's honored.

Regardless of one's beliefs in 'socialized' medicine, this is an instance where not protecting everyone, means no one is protected. Our health care system is definitely not designed to protect everyone, and everyone will pay the cost of that in a potentially escalating pandemic.

This article has given me further pause for thought (especially since it's written by Peggy Noonan)

Panic is bad period.

Taking it seriously and being proactive and careful is good. You don't have to panic to do that.

This reminds me of the 911 calls during 911

People in the towers called 911 operator's. They were treated rudely and hung up on by some of these operators. When they questioned the advice to stay put and put a wet towel under the door. Some of these recordings are downright atrocious.

To listen to supposed authority with a non questioning attitude is plain stupid.

Go with your gut if it doesn't sound right, it isn't. This also applies to the virus.
Take control of your own health.

Not just the elderly, but younger people, too. "But of the 508 patients known to have been hospitalized, 38 percent were notably younger — between 20 and 54. And nearly half of the 121 patients who were admitted to intensive care units were adults under 65, the C.D.C. reported."

If this reported trend continues, our already overburdened health system would not be able to cope with the demand. Thus, that is why the advice from a young Covid-19 infected person is profound.

“My advice to everyone is to act like you already have coronavirus in order to prevent its spread."
