Hospitalized 3 Times In 10 Days, Man STILL Denied Test

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Minneapolis man was back in the hospital Tuesday with what he says are symptoms of COVID-19.

It was Jai Bowie’s third time at Methodist Hospital in ten days.

He’s shared complaints of fever, dry cough, and extreme chest pain.

“My heart wasn’t a total flatline [during my first visit], but it was close enough where they couldn’t feel a pulse,” Bowie said.

Bowie is 45 years old and healthy. The sudden downturn in his health has scared him.

Doctors diagnosed him with pneumonia and did not test him for COVID-19.

Bowie says he was told his symptoms weren’t conclusive enough to have a test done.

“I’m in good shape and all of a sudden I go down like that,” he said. “Tells me there’s something really wrong with me.”
