Admittedly, the chances are small. But you’d think someone who’d been in constant contact with mobs of foreign tourists would be on the “test ‘em” list. Could be the hospital knows something I don’t. Could very well be. It could also be that our public health system hasn’t really updated its protocols since it was discovered that coronavirus could be asymptomatic and have a month’s incubation period, a couple of weeks ago.
If that is the case, Rio is in deep trouble.
Serves you fucking right for living somewhere with shittier healthcare than China.
