MY VISIT TO MONTEFIORE HOSPITAL IN THE BRONX TO COMBAT MY COVID 19 SYMPTOMS WAS UNACCEPTABLE AND AGAINST ALL THE EFFORTS THAT THE HONORABLE GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK ANDREW M. CUOMO AND HIS COLLABORATORS HAVE MADE TO HELP US FIGHT THIS DEADLY VIRUS.
On December 21, 2020, I called the New York State Helpline for Covid 19. 103 fever and a persistent cough stopped me from talking. The service I received was excellent and immediate. The doctor suggested I should go to a hospital. On December 23, 2020, my medical conditions worsened, 8 days fighting by myself against the virus, I ran out of Tylenol and had no choice but to go to Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx. I took Uber services and arrived at the hospital around 10:30 a.m. A nurse took my temperature and then I was left alone. The mask wouldn't let me breathe and I felt like I was choking on the cough. People passing by my side ignored me. I asked the security guard for help and he suggested I go out to the ambulance parking lot. The cold weather allowed me to be there for short time.
