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.”
