Access to information on demand about your body is a basic human right.
Since the Coronavirus has spread, access to testing has been limited, from the supply of testing kits, to major medical restrictions. In order to be tested patients must show severe signs and symptoms of illness.This has created more and more people who don't meet testing criteria to spread COVID-19 to others. According to the CDC symptoms can occur in 2-14 days, this means the virus can spread to people without the carrier showing any signs or symptoms to hundreds of people, causing exponential exposure. Testing when symptoms are onset can potentially reduce the viral exposure to others, so be PROACTIVE.
What is the difference between proactive healthcare and reactive healthcare?
Proactive healthcare is being conscious of yourself, surroundings, others, and using sound judgement when making healthy choices. Often all diseases happen in the body before any symptoms, therefore accessing data about your body through blood testing is just one of the many ways we can be proactive.
A reactive response is much harder to combat when we get sick, often times the cost to access healthcare services is very costly.
Reactive healthcare can come at a big price. Not just to your health, but financially, and to your loved ones too.
