this is looking like a very bad situation here in Boston, known for having best hospitals in the world, not prepared for this.     Lots of local news about lack of supplies already and this thing is just getting started here.

This is what I suspected. So millions of Americans who actually have health insurance will do as you did. I have never been so grateful to live in a country where, even when its heathcare system is strained to its limits, money is never a consideration as to whether I take myself or any member of my family to a hospital.

I still have my National Health card I got in the UK working there on a foreign work visa.   I went to the doc for a checkup, something I hadn't done in the US because I didn't have insurance.    He warned me smoking would kill me so I finally took his advice to quit 25 years after he told me.

Frightening. Why didn't you go to an ER as soon as she realized she needed the inhaler? Was it an oxygen gas inhaler?

In the USA even with good insurance you really don't want to go ER if you can avoid it.    We were like "really, do we need to go to ER??, let's try the inhaler" and that really helped her.

So, logically, she now needs to be tested for covid19 antibodies so that you both know that she is now at least unlikely to be reinfected going forward.

Yes that's what we are talking about.   I also want to know if I've been living with a covid-9 + person, if so I will feel pretty good about my immune system.

So we haven't told many people about this but I'm pretty sure my wife had corona virus.

Yeah it's crazy.. mid Feb she came down with first looked like a cold..then lost appetite, then dry cough, her doc said she might have influenza and to take it easy and rest.   The cough got worse and worse at night and for about 3 nights we were up much of them because of her coughing and difficulty breathing.    She's a nurse grad so we had a portable inhaler.  we had to break that out in the middle of the night to help her breath 2 nights in a row, without that we were close to going to the emergency room.      She was immobilized on our couch for almost 3 weeks.    We were like "wtf is this??".    It definitely seemed a serious respiratory virus.    This is mid-Feb when cases started showing up in MA.     As for me, I woke up with chills one morning but that's been it.

Can any Trump supporters explain why you'd trust a guy who has told thousands of well documented lies for health information?

Arizona Man Dies After Trying COVID-19 Remedy Touted by Trump

An Arizona man died after he and his wife ingested a chemical in an attempt to prevent a coronavirus infection, Banner Health said in a press release. His wife is in critical care. Both are in their 60s.

The chemical — chloroquine phosphate — is commonly used to clean fish tanks.

During a press conference on Thursday, President Donald Trump touted chloroquine as showing "very, very encouraging early results" in treating COVID-19 and falsely stated that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was working "to be able to make that drug available almost immediately." The drug has been used to treat malaria.

They are willing to sacrifice millions to boost the economy and the interest is entirely self-interest: Trump's re-election chances and their grip on power.    In this case they are facing in some cases not only loss of power but also potentially loss of freedom as in federal and state charges.
