A 19-year-old male presents the emergency department complaining of cough and fever. He states he wants to get checked out because he's worried he may have coronavirus. He has normal vital signs and he appears clinically well. There is no recent travel history nor recent known known exposure, to anyone with either confirmed or suspected COVID-19.
How do you approach this patient? What are the testing guidelines and the testing capabilities? How can we as clinicians communicate with our patients effectively about COVID-19?
With all the misinformation on social media and various news outlets it comes down to us to be the voice of truth for our patients. Today on the Medgeeks podcast we discuss COVID-19.
