"He’s lying," she said along side a screenshot of a tweet from Trump saying that the U.S. has done more testing than any other country. "I was sent to the #COVID19 isolation ward room in a major hospital ER from a separate urgent care facility after showing UNBEARABLY PAINFUL symptoms. The hospital couldn’t test me for #coronavirus because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions. #TESTTESTTEST"

People in the comments sent their thoughts to her.

"Know us healthcare workers would test you in a second if we had the ability/ supplies , or the protective gear. It’s so so horrible all around. Hoping you’ll be on the mend soon," one said.

"Holding loving space for you, dear Kathy. The world is better with you in it!" another added.

"Oh no. Hang in there KG. You've been thru so much. We love you," a third wrote.

Trump isn't technically lying -- the United States has done more total testing than any other country. But per capita, America is still far behind many other nations. South Korea, for example, has tested one person for every 144 while the U.S. has only done one test per 900 citizens.

Staying Safe

Heath officials are urging people to remain in their homes as much as possible and avoid all social gatherings. Additionally, the CDC has issued some tips for helping to avoid contracting the disease.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

Stay home when you are sick.

Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.

Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
