I checked the other day for testing, symptoms baga undi positive aythe primary health will forward the case to concerned hospital based on the severity ani chadivanu else necesssary kakunda mild aythe they won't recommend ani

MA state lo $160 for covid swab test and $50 for antibody tests, result in 15mins....  Test as needed aythe they'll submit for insurance else we need to pay from our pocket

Keep updating this thread with any US experiences, will be helpful

Mild don't have to know much, What about the cases of moderate? They are prescribing the medication as per the symptoms and all the medicines available in stores? In India they are many different type of antibiotics depends on the symptoms...

Test results are dependent on some states.  California is running late.  In most cases, if the patient is health and does not have any pre conditions, he is given regular medicine and is asked to stay at home.  Glad to know that processes are constantly improving.  Instant results are readily available, but if we need swab test, its taking time, as the specimen needs to be sent to remote lab.  

Initially, lab orders were not sent with priority, and now priority is marked based on patient condition.  This helps labs prioritize the tests to be done instantly.  All EMR systems are making modifications and hospitals are actively working on alternatives to better serve patients.

 

if your symptoms are mild to moderate, you will be fine within 7-10 days with OTC medicine.  Age is also a factor.  if you are under 50, not a great worry, unless you have severe symptoms or other health issues.
