  1. The D.O.H. is blowing it!
    I had symptoms last friday, but it took till today (mon), and several hours to get blood drawn because clinical labs in Pahoa was closed fri pm, sat, and sun. I couldn’t afford the Hilo ER $ or transport.
    Urgent care PCMC and Bay Clinic won’t draw blood.
    My guess is that there are hundreds of infected people who don’t/can’t know.
    The DOH should mobilize vans to take blood samples in rural areas. This is serious, cuz!
