Posted on December 04, 2020

Here is a picture of what will happen when you get COVID-19 and fail to do a test and receive early care.

Between 2 and 14 days after exposure to the virus, you will experience fever, fatigue, a dry cough, and loss of appetite. You will also have body aches, shortness of breath, and production of mucus or phlegm.

This is just the start.

You will then experience more serious symptoms like sore throat, headache, and chills in which you visibly shake. You will lose your sense of smell or taste or both. Then, you will be congested with a runny nose, feel nausea (or even vomit), and diarrhea. 

Now, things start getting really bad.

You will have trouble breathing and feel constant pressure and pain in your chest. Your lips and face will have a bluish colour and you will feel confused. You may even get a stroke. At this point, you need emergency medical services.

Lab tests will show that you are suffering from COVID-19. At this point, your life is on the balance. Early COVID-19 testing may be the difference between life and death.

Why Testing Is Important


Testing saves lives

If you get a positive test result early, you can isolate yourself and reduce the chances of infecting others. This will also allow others to seek early treatment and reduce the chances of disease severity, long-term disability, and death.

If you are positive, testing also allows for the identification of those who have been in contact with you. You may also be asymptomatic and a test will ensure that you are not infecting others. Testing helps in fighting the pandemic.

Testing is easy and quick

During the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, the only available test involved taking a sample from the back of the throat. The Flame Lily, through CheckUp Health, offers more comfortable and accurate tests that involve a mouth swab.

Testing matters more in communities affected the most

Essential workers who cannot work from home have a higher risk of exposure to the virus. In cases of multigenerational living conditions, the virus can spread quickly in case one member of the family gets infected. Comorbid conditions like obesity, heart disease, and diabetes worsen the health risks of COVID-19.

COVID-19 can spread quickly among members of the above communities with devastating effects. This is why testing for asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic individuals is key to slowing and stopping the pandemic.

Get the Test. Spread the Word!
