What would you do?
I know some people, that have been experiencing mild symptoms of caugh recently, don't call the doctors, because they have to earn money and can't stop working. Their income depends on what they do daily, like freelance taxi or cargo drivers. Or they just don't want to be locked with the whole family in their small flats without possibility to go outside for two weeks.

What would you do in their place? Would you call the doctors, be tested and be locked losing your only income and getting mad in a small locked space, or would you rather withhold your symptoms?

If actually landed in that situation, the majority are likely to hide their symptoms. The drive to avoid an empty stomach is one of the strongest. This is what the expression "tragedy of commons" means - subordination of the public interest in favour of individual interests.

Call the doctor inmediately and get tested... Before is too late. Did you know you could die? I don't get it why people are still questioning about the virus.

I agree, Som. I think, this is what is going on in my country now - if people suspect they are having a virus, and if they are handling it quite well, they prefer not to detect it.
