A Twitter thread details how difficult it is to get tested for the Coronavirus in the United States

For all the worry and fear around the virus, there are very few actual measures available for the public

The Coronavirus has dominated the news for weeks and stoked the fears of a frightened public, yet the efforts in place to combat the spread of the epidemic are sorely lacking. Many experts are underwhelmed by the Trump administration's response, and a woman took to Twitter to discuss her difficulties in finding medical testing for the virus.

A Twitter user posting under the name @into_the_brush posted a story about her experience in Seattle looking for confirmation that she might have COVID-19. She has suffered from repeated cases of chronic bronchitis and works with older people at a physical therapy clinic, so when she began experiencing symptoms related to the virus, she decided to get tested. It seemed like the responsible thing to do. But it was impossible.

Others, especially people in the health care industry, have tweeted their own tales.
