Your article would help REDUCE the confusion and chaos, if you'd at least mention the fact that since a week ago (3/5), commercial labs are doing testing nationwide, with no limits announced. Patients must still have symptoms appropriate for the condition (as with ANY disease!)

People should NOT go to social media for important & critical issues.
You'll get more misinformation than truth.
Looking at her signs, actually they don't really match COVID-19 symptoms.

The confusion comes mostly from the "official Government" Daily News brief. Both the daily brief and the US CDC site are sending changing & conflicting info from day to day.

On top of that many news media and even doctors often publish unsubstantiated "facts" which are either wrong or misleading or need "detailed qualifications".

For examples, the face masks comments and guidelines are flying everywhere. It's often very misleading. Why not taking off our prejudice & dark color glasses and look at the successful cases (in terms of flattening the curves effectively) from countries like South Korea and Singapore? Then you will not have any confusion.

The Daily News brief is more like an election rally nowadays. Many statements are politics oriented or motivated hence creating false hope or misleading impression.

When a Covid patient is hospitalized... what exactly does a hospital do? I mean, if there is no cure why are we utilizing limited and costly hospital resources on something that is incurable?
