Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been claims and rumors from those in the medical field that said they were finding that what was being talked about on the evening news, was not necessarily what was happening in their real world – claims about nurses finding labs in Florida turning out 100 percent positive results for coronavirus, how most hospitals were not overrun by COVID-19 patients. In fact, they were being laid off. Reportedly, some of these nurses at a testing site decided to turn in some swabs that were never used and see what happened – they also came back positive for COVID-19. Recently a trusted, anonymous source told the Suwannee Valley Times about a testing sight in North Florida that had to turn 300 or so people away at the last minute, but their names and information were already taken. Days later, each of these received a letter in the mail stating they had tested positive for COVID-19. In the beginning, those in the medical field were afraid to speak out for fear of retaliation but those days are waning.
