I want to highlight a couple of quotes from this email.
Since the patient did not fit the existing CDC criteria for COVID-19, a test was not immediately administered. UC Davis Health does not control the testing process.
The facts here are pretty clear. Patient comes in from another hospital on Wednesday, Feb. 19 - this is one week ago - already intubated and on a ventilator, and the doctors at UC Davis - who have treated other COVID-19 cases - IMMEDIATELY suspect COVID-19.
