Is There A COVID Indifference?

The COVID-19 tally for my family is going up. With the increase of cases, one thing remains clear; there is a difference in how people receive care. Right now, the tally for COVID cases in my family stands at 9. My sister had COVID with her husband and our cousins. My husband’s sister and her husband had COVID-19, which also bled down to their children.

Earlier this week, my daughter informed me that her boyfriend and his mother were diagnosed with COVID. I asked her boyfriend about their medication and found out the doctors prescribed Z-packs. I asked her boyfriend if he and his mother were prescribed any other medications he stated no.

Part of me wanted to believe that this was perhaps normal. However, I knew from talking to our family members when they dealt with COVID that check-ups were frequent. I told him about the vitamins that the doctors used to help our loved ones get better.

I do not want to believe that money plays such a role in how people get treatment for this virus, but it looks like money is a factor. You have two families of the upper-middle class who receive great care. Then you have a Mexican family barely above the poverty line that is told to go home and rest.

I would like to believe that perhaps there is something I might be missing, but why were these people simply told to go home and rest? Why are so many people told to go home and rest and later come back with raging cases of COVID? Just curious.
