There is a video circulating the Internet about a woman whose sister was suffering from COVID-19, but doctors didn’t believe her.

In the video below, she shares how her sister went to NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and was told she had bronchitis and not the coronavirus. Then, she went back again and was told she had pneumonia. Her sister went a third time and was told she had the flu.  During all these visits, the hospital would not test her for the coronavirus.  It wasn’t until her fourth visit that she was put on a ventilator and unconscious that they decided to test her.  She indeed had COVID-19.  Unfortunately, shortly after she was put on the ventilator, she died.

But, unfortunately, this is not uncommon.
