Yes, you are very lucky to have access right now. We have had so many people die in the US while begging to be tested and being refused. The reality is here though that due to how badly this has been handled, it really isn't safe to go to hospitals and clinics in many areas here because you are more likely to contract it doing so than if you were to self treat most ailments at home.Hey so an aside, I had a Covid-19 test today. It sucks man. The mouth swab is easy but they plunge that fucking swab deep down your nostrils It made my eyes tear up and I had to fight the urge not to pull away pretty hard.
Don't worry about me though, its almost certainly just a mundane cold, there is under only around 200 cases in my state but I still did my civic duty to report my very mild dry cough and sore throat. I'm surprised how easily I got tested for very mild symptoms without being a healthcare worker considering some other nations issues obtaining tests.
It's kinda scary but the premiere said people like me with very mild symptoms should go get tested so I'm doing it.
If I did get it I reckon it would have been during shopping on the Anzac weekend at Coles and if its a cold I probably picked it up there too. That place was packed and way too cramped.
Sadly, yes people are dying all across the US that were able to get tested when they tried.

Police Officer and Mother Dies After Weeks of Trying to Get Tested for COVID-19
The Santa Rosa Police Department in California is mourning the death over Detective Marylou Armer. The police officer and mother died after weeks of trying to get tested for COVID-19.
It isn't just tests, due to the US federal government not utilizing the defense production act to provide desperately needed PPE to the front lines, so many more essential workers were denied the PPE they needed to do their jobs and the US isn't even tracking how many first responders are dying right now from this.

A HERO healthcare worker has died of suspected coronavirus after she had to work a hospital shift without protective equipment. Danielle DiCenso, a 33-year-old nurse from Florida turned up for her …
Even worse we have ignorant states like Florida trying to cover up how many COVID-19 deaths they have because they don't want it to make them look bad. They have forced their medical examiners to withhold COVID-19 death figures and there have been reports that the state is "picking and choosing which cases to be included in the official count" in an attempt to make it look like there are less deaths than there really are. With the combination of refusing testing AND only considering deaths that the doctors had time to fill out extensive paperwork and have it available by the time of the state review considered, they can greatly reduce the numbers they report. It doesn't change that so many more actually died due to COVID-19, it just lets the governor deny it is happening.
Tampa Bay Times: Florida officials asked state's medical examiners to withhold coronavirus death figures
The Florida Department of Health intervened to keep a tally of coronavirus deaths kept by Florida's 22 medical examiners from being released publicly, the Tampa Bay Times reported Wednesday.
That is what really scares me. Usually the standard republican tactic is to turn a blind eye to what is happening, create obstacles to allow proper documentation and then deny it is a problem that exists at all. This is how they have handled homelessness, help for the poor, racial injustice, domestic abuse, and so many other issues in the past, it is just really terrifying that they would actually try to pull this BS during a Pandemic after we have lost so many lives and are going to lose so many more. Hell some of them are not even trying to hide that they are wiling to just let people die rather than properly address the problem.

It is one thing to be willing to risk your own life, but it is another matter all together for them to be willing to kill innocent people because they are unwilling to make changes to keep people safe. The entire idea that we have elected officials that view the people as somehow being disposable is terrifying.
