Today I received a sad news that my sister in NY is having symptoms of the virus. She has been a nurse in one of the hospitals there and for now she is scheduled to be checked for the virus tomorrow in the hospital she is working. That is why I appeal to everyone out there to stay at home since our medical frontliners are the ones who are getting stressed out and getting infected already. They need us to stay home to avoid getting infected and become victims of these virus.

Pardon me for this comment. For a frontliner to experience symptoms, the probability to be positive is high. Of course, I can be wrong.

That’s true she is assigned to an ER in there so they are the first one to really be exposed to the virus. But still hoping that she has not gotten it and its just stressed from work. I am just relying on the hospital that she will be given the medical attention she will need there if she happens to be positive.

@Alexandoy yes so far they have A separate testing area for employees. They are given a much faster processing 24 hours. But after 24 hours it still is not released yet. They must have been double checking the results before they release to them.

Not yet she is scheduled tomorrow for the testing and hopefully it’s not positive. Though the risk is not in her favor since she is exposed to all sorts of medical emergencies which includes the exposure to this virus.

@rsa101 That is not good news. You are right they are on the front line and it is very sad how they come in contact with people that have it and then they could get it too.

Thanks latest news I got from her is that her fever subsided already but she has lost her sense of smell and taste. Some say that is one of the symptoms of the virus.

I am so sorry to hear that. I hope your sister will be fine. I agree with you. Actually I have stayed at home more than two months. I will just go out to buy some groceries about once a week and occasionally go to the office. I want to be responsible for myself and others.

Well I have to commend you people in China for doing the right thing to socially distancing yourselves from one another. Although you are not totally free from the virus but you have successfully lowered the cases down already.

She has been tested positive a couple of days ago. I think she’s lucky to get the mild symptoms of the virus as of today. She is currently in home quarantine and is observing herself in the meantime.
