On Jan 24, a Weibo user alleged to be a nurse in Wuhan posted that his husband had symptoms of pneumonia but the hospitals rejected to treat his husband again and again. The account was suspended after the very post.
Please, help the people of Wuhan. I am a nurse. My husband has been infected. What is reported in the news is completely inaccurate from the facts!!! My husband has had a fever for 8 days continuously without any signs of improvement. The CT image clearly shows the infection in his lungs! In the past 8 days, I’ve reached out to all of my connections in Wuhan hospitals, but still, my husband is not admitted to a hospital! The leaders (hospital management?) instructed the doctors to refuse to admit him! Refuse to test for the virus! Refuse to confirm the diagnosis of coronavirus! They ask healthcare workers to sign NDAs! In the past eight days, I have endured tremendous stress! Hospitals won’t admit. we can’t (afraid) to go home. We are running back and forth between the hospitals and none of them will admit us. None of them will provide a diagnosis! I have lost all hope! I don’t know how much longer I can hold on! Running back and forth between the hospitals. No hospital bed available. The health care workers are working overtime and there is still a severe shortage. Finally, we have made it into an emergency room but are still waiting to get a bed! Meanwhile, the EMS is still constantly bringing in new patients, regardless of everyone’s conditions, all are brought to this dedicated hospital. Everyone is going to get cross infected. We are all going to die if this continues!!!
