When the teen became ill, his parents took him to an urgent care center and were turned away because

he didn't have health insurance, Parris said. He was then taken to an emergency room at a local hospital.

Here's how the novel coronavirus outbreak unfolded

(CNN)California health officials are reevaluating the death of a 17-year-old boy from coronavirus, saying his case is "complex" and needs further investigation.
The Lancaster teen was initially described as the first known juvenile to die from the coronavirus in the United States.

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health attributed his death to coronavirus Tuesday. Later that evening, officials backpedaled, saying his case needs more review by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

8. This may be the crisis

that causes just that. I read a report earlier today about how business interruption insurance companies are weaseling out of paying, because they say a pandemic isn't covered.

When you get Republicon business types seeing what a scam insurance is, even they'll want to skin those weasels.

4. Quite a quagmire actually in this....

Some insurance insists on urgent care first before hospital, I was in one such plan years back.

Governors need to announce & force adjustment to this horrible policy for the Trump Virus?

Otherwise, expect MORE spread and more preventable time sensitive deaths?

Profit Corporations in charge of people's healthcare, what could go wrong!!!!!!
[Everything, aka. death in this one?]

7. Yup, and yet some people STILL need to wake the hell up!

Idiots trying to purposely make others sick all need just lined up and shot, that would put a quick end to that BS.

If no one else has the stomach, fine I volunteer to be the U.S. idiot executioner, I assume it pays well and could use the income.
