    Click on Thread Tools higher up this page. The subscribe is in there and probably a box to uncheck. You can also view your subscription settings in your user settings (near the bottom on the left I think).

This poor guy was just trying to do the right thing and he now owes at least $1400 for a flu test...

    The advice in the UK is not to do this anyway. I think this raises something I've found shows a difference between our countries as I see American members getting tested for flu which a GP here won't do. I'm not sure nowadays but I've never heard of anyone being tested for flu and the GP would diagnose from symptoms. Other's may be able to clarify but anything cold related my surgery have noticed up to head for a pharmacy instead as a minor ailment and I suspect unless you really need help it will be home go bed for the week.

    The advice here is to self isolate and go nowhere near any medical facility. It will only be those who progress in severity that need treatment since antibiotics don't work and symptoms are treated to allow the body to combat the virus.

    It's pretty obvious our NHS were being cautious by taking in infected patients who have later said it was little more than a cold to them. Therefore self isolation would have been enough for them. So for hopefully most Americans perhaps they won't be hit with a bill since no treatment may take place?

    But yes I think your government should step in on the costs in cases where for public safety precautionary measures are taken which turn out to be needed or not so as to stop people worrying about making the choice to lumber themselves with a bill. But I also wonder about overkill and at what point should doctors be turning someone away from expensive tests in an industry with many problems with over testing. In this case the patient made a diagnostic call out of financial reasons that turned out to be correct but the doctors were rubbing their hands at expensive testing.

    I'm feeling really worried about this now. Everyone is acting like it's the end of the world

    Re: Coronavirus worries?

    Also I'm feeling a bit unwell today so obviously I'm scared I have it

    Not cold symptoms but I have a mild feeling of nausea

    Probably caused by worrying

    Just like they do every time it snows, Toby. We get media headlines about killer storms and the country grinding to a halt. The reality is we all carry on going to work because whilst the media might think it's the end of the world you will find it isn't a valid excuse not to turn up to work

    When do you think all of this might end?

    Toby, I get where you're coming from but this is nothing. I have the shakes this morning because I saw there was a low-grade weather warning for ice and I have to walk to work, but I recognise that

    1) I've stepped outside the door and there's no ice
    2) Even if this changes in the next hour and a half, it's still not a big deal because
    3) Even if it was really bad I could always just get a cab, and
    4) A fall on ice is highly unlikely to do me major damage anyway

    Fear is horrible, but not all fears are logical and you need to work on dismissing the illogical ones.

    Everyone who is panicking on this thread may be acting like it's the end of the world but it's business as usual outside. We are fortunate to be in the UK and can panic if we choose to or get on with our lives and be sensible as regards staying clear of any viruses which may be doing the rounds.

    A couple of weeks ago I almost booked a trip to Rome next week. Because of Coronavirus I decided to wait and see what happened. I am glad I waited. I will not be going, even though it's Northern Italy we need to avoid. Other than that I am just continuing as usual. We are more likely to die from Flu than coronavirus. Anyone under the age of 70 has a fantastic chance of recovery, and the chance of catching it to begin with seems to be pretty low at this point. Maybe it's time for people to recheck their personal hygiene regime, but other than that I am not sure anyone need to panic like this.
