  1. Perhaps some University Medical Schools can provide some reliable info on the COVID, e.g. 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

    I have Ophthalmology, Dermatology, and Vitreoretinal Doctors at the UFHealth center … had a yearly epiretinal membrane check on rt eye yesterday, and got that above notice today. I found the two question below to be helpful…

    Q: What are the symptoms of COVID-19 infection?

    A: People with COVID-19 develop fever, cough, shortness of breath and fatigue. Some may also have a sore throat, headache or diarrhea. These are very nonspecific symptoms and can be similar to many other infectious diseases like respiratory illnesses and flu. As per CDC guidance, people with these symptoms are only considered to be at risk for COVID-19 if they have traveled from China, most of Europe, Iran, Japan and South Korea, have had close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or are undergoing evaluation for COVID-19, all within the past 14 days. This also includes anyone experiencing symptoms who has been on a cruise in the last 14 days.

    Q: Can I come in and be tested for COVID-19?

    A: UF Health Shands follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, and Florida Department of Health guidelines to identify and manage anyone who may have an emerging infection. As per CDC guidance, people with symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath) are only considered to be at risk for COVID-19 if they have traveled from China, Iran, most of Europe, Japan or South Korea, and have had close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or are undergoing evaluation for COVID-19, all within the past 14 days. Anyone experiencing symptoms who has been on a cruise within the last 14 days is also considered to be at risk.

    Maybe those outside of the USA can check their local Medical Universities for more reliable info than what MSM puts out here…and there. Just my 2-cents…
