Would you pay $4000 to get tested for the Coronavirus?

If you can get a day off work, that is. Which you can't, because you wont get paid time off, and rent is due soon. So you have to keep working and greet other people even though you're sick

Americans, explain.

Re: Would you pay $4000 to get tested for the Coronavirus?

It needs to be free but also mandatory to ensure we're all safe and healthy to get through this big (and growing) pandemic at this time. Anyone tested positive would have to be quarantined for 14 days, but most of us don't want to go through that. America is said to be worse off than China, south Korea, Japan, Iran and Italy...we don't really care about our own health and survival, covid19 should taught the whole world a huge lesson on human health and survival.

A lesson but will it? The lesson is stop being greedy! To the corporate world businesses etc. Greed. Shutting things for a month wouldíve stopped it all spreading. Who gives a **** about economy.
I thought health comes first? U.K. is the worst. At least trump has stopped countries from coming in. U.K. are fingering themselves

Greed? excuse me what do you think the "economy" is?

Yeah lets put a stop at those factories producing food, medical supplies, electricity, water. I'm pretty sure we can survive without food and clean water.

Well we wonít need them if they donít control things!
Iím not the government. Iím not in control but they can stop certain things like schools from opening. There are other ways of getting food. Deliveries etc. Iím not saying stop medical and clean water lol 😂
Some businesses can work from home. 2 weeks or 4 weeks wonít kill anyone

There are ways and government have ways and power to get things done. Italy have finally been able to stop ✋ but no one is starving and no one has stopped medical and clean water! This is not the 16th century!

Look at the poor families in Italy l who have lost loved ones. I feel for them. If it could have been controlled maybe their loved ones should not have died.

The food which is delivered to you still needs to be harvested, produced, transported, assembled, inspected, cooked and delivered to your home by humans, a process which requires at least 500 people going to work so you and others can get a pizza from the safety of your home. And the electricity, gasoline, machinary to allow those people to produce your food, also has to be mantained, transported and manufactured.

Suggesting to close down the economy is ludicrous. Sure we would survive for how long, a month? two months? What do we do after that if the virus is still spreading?

Real problems require real solutions, not childish dreams of "the cause is greed!"

No need for rudeness.
Who said anything about shutting down the economy 🙄
Other countries have closed offices and schools
I feel you need to read what Iíve put rather than go on a tangent and then lecture me with rudeness. Thereís no need. We are all feeling it and worried about this issue and we all have a opinion and putting me down with your comments and replying with assumptions is hurtful but you will have personal reasons so crack on but remember this ...... you need to answer the thread question not go at me!

I just responded to your suggestion, by explaining that it would be a bad idea. If you find that to be rude, I really don't care.

Clearly when you equated "greed" with "shutting things down" and "not caring about the economy", is the implication we just stop production and activity on a major scale as an attempt to contain the virus. I merely explained why that would be stupid.

I care about the pandemic and the discussion on this topic, what I don't care is if you find my replies rude or offensive. Just like the virus, bad ideas such as shutting down the economy shouln't spread either.

Delusional and assuming. You donít care. Youíre just interested in not giving up on your silly assumptions. Childish.

And you are strawmanning to divert attention from the bad point you made a couple of posts ago.

The coronavirus spreading has little to do with greed, and you are wrong about shutting down the economy, which would be hurtful rather than helpful. Viruses spread, and nothing can be done about it.The only thing we can do is endure, take precautions to prevent infection, and develop a cure as soon as possible.And for that to occur we need economic activity to function as best as possible.

Looks like most countries have had a lock down!

Economy or health 🤔
Looks like health comes first and economy will have to be controlled differently without the greed.

No I would not pay to be checked. If I get the flu, I will do what I always do when I get the flu. Stay home, drink lots of fluids, sleep. Pay $4,000. That's funny, I don't have the money!

Re: Would you pay $4000 to get tested for the Coronavirus?

America started to test a quarter out of a predicted one million people to be tested this month. They are very limited and reserved only to those reported flu like symptoms in the mildest form, public service and health care workers, the elderly (over 60), esp. immune compromised and unhealthy people, and maybe pregnant women will be given top priority...not everyone can get easily tested at the current time. What about people who work in essential business like grocery stores interact with the public, like me, constantly washing or sanitizing hands and tries in social distancing in crowded environments?

Lol you know, I read this all wrong until you commented. I thought it meant would you get paid 4K to be tested.

This is what Iíve heard. That government are paying ppl to get the virus to then be tested to find the cure .....

I haven't heard that. I have been looking at statistics.

deaths from influenza and pneumonia

In the US 50,000-80,000 a year
In Canada 6,500 - 8,500 a year

Re: Would you pay $4000 to get tested for the Coronavirus?

Truthfully, there is no way, I could allow myself to be invaded by their testing.

My Uranus is exactly square my Ascendant. I do not trust "the powers that be" at all. Been down that road before, more than a few times.

I see, that it is I that misunderstood HKK, not you, people are getting paid. I would feel like they were giving it to me.

I am allergic to Earth since I was 9 months old. Through my life, I have noticed that I am not really allergic to Earth, but I am allergic to all of the chemicals used, for, well, everything.

Just about everything in my house is unscented. If I use chemicals, I open all the windows.
