Recommends Testing For 'Even Mild Symptoms'
I recently went to the British Columbia Covid self assessment page and went through all the questions. When I answered no to every question the result was that I did not need to be tested.
The next time I also answered no to every question with the exception of the following page. You will note that Covid-19 type symptoms is included along with all of the following, It would pretty much ensure that coming into a typical fall/winter season nearly everyone could answer yes to one of these symptoms which prompt a 'yes' you need a test result.
At the start of this pandemic Dr. Henry was saying it was not necessary to test for all symptoms. Remember? We also were concerned about overwhelming the health care system.
It would seem that overwhelming the system is no longer a concern, in fact you might conclude that is exactly what they are trying to do.
