"Arianna Pimienta Johnson
·I would like to let people know that a lot of information is being given out by local government workers that is false.
1. There are NO covid tests ( immunoglobulin or PCR) Tests in Cihuatlan hospital or Melaque Centro de Salud since 3 weeks ago.
If you want an immunoglobulin test done you have to go to a private Doctor or Lab. It costs between $800-1200p a test.
If you want a PCR test you can ONLY get them in Colima, Guadalajara, and now possibly Autlan. The cost is between $4800-$5300 pesos.
2. Civil Protection has been taking severe COVID patients to Autlan from Cihuatlan Hospital DAILY.
3. If you are having COVID symptoms you will be prescribed medicine or some sort of treatment (renting oxygen tank at $7000p) and sent home to quarantine.
With NO COVID test done!!!!!!
Now for anyone that has money, you can buy your medicine, pay a private Doctor to check up on you, rent an oxygen tank and hopefully all will be ok.
For those who are poor, maybe just lost everything in a flood, might have lost their jobs due to pandemic, I don't know, there are many reasons people are struggling right now, do you think they have money to pay for medication or pay $7000 pesos for an oxygen tank??
So what happens?? They get really sick, and go back to the Cihuatlan hospital and get rushed to Autlan.
Be careful getting information from sources that want tourists aka $$$ to come down. I live off of tourism, trust me I get it. But maybe it's time for the government, local and state, to invest money in savings their own people's lives.
Everyone is struggling and needs work and needs money. It's going to be very hard. But false information is dangerous. That's just my opinion."
"Arianna Pimienta Johnson if you don't know is Dr. Woo's daughter. She is probably next to her father the very best person for knowledge of what is going on in the area. She can be trusted to always post what she believes is factual."
