“Sharing our failed Covid-19 test attempt experience in 2 hospitals/clinics... 😷

Today, my wife and I decided to visit the hospital to have ourselves checked kasi I had sore throat and slight fever the past days, just to be sure lang... 👌We picked the 1st hospital somewhere in Commonwealth Avenue kasi affiliated nman sya ng Maxicare and malapit lang samin... Pagdating namin dun may screening agad sa entrance/guard, fill up fill up ng forms tas pag may signs and symptoms ka ng Covid-19 direcho ka na sa screening room where this photo was taken. Inside the room merong Ate nurse na nakaOOTD tlga ng pangvirus protection, yung parang astronaut. 😅Tas ayun start na ng Q & A... After namin masabi ung mga naramdaman namin, she said that if we want to proceed pa sa actual testing, we have to pay 2k each para sa green laboratory gown na gagamitin namin inside the room where the sick people are being tested... Other than that, may other payments pa during the actual test kasi di daw covered ng health card and super limited lang daw ung test kits na meron sa Philippines. We didn't bother asking na kung ano ano pa yung mga babayaran na yun kasi were stunned na tlga sa 4k na initial payment ee.. And yeah, we're so surprised and we're like... Really? So pano pala kaming mga nasa laylayan ng lipunan na wala tlgang capacity mag'shell out ng ganung amount? Antay antay nalang mamatay? Pero well, yun daw ung protocol sa kanila and they're just following the rules... Ok, no personal grudge to Ate Nurse, then we decided to leave nalang... (Still ranting about the situation though... 😑

And since maaga pa nmn, we tried din sa 2nd hospital/clinic... Setting inside is, walang mga tao sa lobby... Kasi wala din palang doctors! Nakakaloka! 😅Kahit family doctor wala and kung sakali mang meron depende padin sa doctor kung tatanggapin ka nya (EH DI WOW!). Tas pag may signs and symptoms ka din ng Covid-19, di ka din iaacommodate kasi wala silang facilities for it...  So ano na po tlga? Antay antay nalang lumala at mategi? Dadami lang tlga ng dadami yung cases kahit maglockdown pa, kasi di alam ng tao kung dapat na silang ma'isolate ee kasi walang pambayad sa pangtest... Ano na po PILIPINAS? 🤔

UPDATE: Okay, we have learned and understand na limited lang yung test kits na meron sa Pilipinas to test Covid-19, and severe cases lang yung kayang iaccomodate, no problem to that anymore. Pero sana manlang kahit normal/regular check-up tanggapin ng hospitals/clinics para ma'diagnose padin and mainuman ng gamot if needed kung typical viral infection lang nmn pala. Iba padin ung feeling na may idea ung tao kesa 100% clueless db? 😕
