Ayaw magpa-test sa coronavirus ng model at dating “Dancing with the Stars” winner Nyle DiMarco kahit ramdam niya ang lahat ng sintomas ng kinatatakutang Covid-19.
Ayon DiMarco, alam niyang limitado lamang ang Covid-19 test kits at ayaw niyang makipag-agawan sa mga mas nangangailangan.

I do not typically do this but I wanted to share something… I’ve been really sick and I am now on the mend. It is very possible I contracted coronavirus and I have access to get tested but I do not want to. The reason is because there is a shortage of covid-19 test kits in the U.S. and the sick patients need it more than I do. For 48 hours starting Sunday night, I had a fever, body chills, a sore throat and a mild cough. All these are symptomatic of COVID-19. Some with COVID-19 have reported not being able to taste or smell. That was my experience too. I knew I wasn’t a high risk so I stayed calm. I communicated with my doctor and self-quarantined. I kept an eye out for any respiratory issues because if it worsened, it could be deadly. But I recovered…. And I still am self-isolating. I’d like to stress that testing is important. Widespread testing has been a key part for some countries like South Korea’s efforts in handling Covid-19. In a perfect world, I’d take the test. Unfortunately the U.S. lacks enough test kits. If you are healthy and have no respiratory issues, I encourage you to be mindful of sick patients that need to get tested more than you do. And stay at home to avoid spreading and help flattening the curve. We’re in this together. Let look out for each other!!
Sa kanyang Instagram post, sinabi ni DiMarco na malaki ang posibilidad na meron siyang coronavirus dahil pinagdaanan niya ang lahat ng sintomas nito.
Pero kahit meron daw siyang access para makapagpasuri, “The reason is because there is a shortage of covid-19 test kits in the U.S. and the sick patients need it more than I do,” ayon sa post ni DiMarco.
“I’d like to stress that testing is important.”
Kabilang umano sa mga narananasan niya ay ang lagnat, panginginig, sore throat at ubo habang hindi na rin niya malasahan ang pagkain at hindi na rin siya makaamoy.
Nagpakonsulta umano siya sa doktor at sinabihan siyang kapag lumala pa ang kanyang pakiramdam ay kailangang talagang magpa-test para sa kaligtasan ng mga tao sa kanyang paligid.
Nag-self isolate na lamang ang model at ngayon umano ay nag-umpisa nang bumuti ang kanyang pakiramdam.
“In a perfect world, I’d take the test,” ayon pa kay DiMarco.
“If you are healthy and have no respiratory issues, I encourage you to be mindful of sick patients that need to get tested more than you do. And stay at home to avoid spreading and help flattening the curve.”
