What is your plan? I mean chest heaving, fever cannot catch a breathe or smell nor taste anything sick.

Will you go try to find an ICU bed in a private clinic, go to HOMS, go to the biggest hospital in Santo Domingo???

What is everybody's game plan?

Shall we start with yours? Which region of RD are you located, or did you evacuate to higher ground?

Make sure you paid your insurance before you start looking for a private clinic in the DR. ;)

I just heard from a hospital administrator here that all Covid cases in the DR go to designated hospitals and are all handled by the Public Health system and the Secretary of Health office.

I am trying to figure out which hospitals. These locations are considered as isolation facilities.

There are 5 places including HOMS that can do the test. Some are private clinics. Just because they can do the test does not qualify them to treat the virus.

She also said things are changing here hour by hour.

More information that everyone may have.

You need a doctors prescription to qualify for a Covid Test here. That would be anyone's first step into the system here.

In his first address to the nation, Medina said that those able yo pay could choose going to private clinics.

An Rx and 2 symptoms gets you a free test

I have good insurance,PALIC Prestige and would hope I would get to Union medica or HOMS. I am taking all necessary steps to avoid it as I have a compromised heart condition. Fortunately we have two colmadoes that do home delivery, but stocked up on the 18th with at least a month worth of vegetables and fruit....etc. Most of our students are doing schoolwork at home through whatsapp groups set up with each teacher.

I plan for today and hope for tomorrow.
If the symptoms kick in...there is not much hope for a fella my age and several compromised health issues.
Hey!
I came here to be with family and for the great air the tropics offer.
Now even that is compromised .. Sometimes we just keep pi**ing in the wind.
IN the end my plan B is to stick my head between my legs and kiss my arse goodbye.
In the meantime I plan to enjoy this day to the fullest....
