UNL student denied COVID-19 testing despite symptoms
Erin Patton says she marked off all the COVID–19 symptoms over the past few days.
Erin Patton says she marked off all the COVID–19 symptoms over the past few days. The concern grew as she has pre–existing medical issues.
“I just think I was a lifeline that she wanted to hear from somebody she respected, say this is the right thing to do and yes do it, don’t take no for an answer and you are right to feel concerned,” said a Professor at UNL School of Resources, Leon Higley.
Bryan Health officials spoke to the public Wednesday saying they do not have enough testing kits.
Both Patton and Higley say if we had enough testing kits, we could know who has it and who doesn’t. This would prevent many of the quarantines.
“Even if I test positive, at least in my opinion, is that we can start getting people to take this serious and stop spreading it to everyone,” said Patton.
