A doctor in Iowa who specializes in infectious diseases is calling for more people to get tested for the coronavirus and more people in Iowa to be tested for COVID-19.
Dr. Andrew M. Smith, a professor at the University of Iowa School of Medicine, wrote a letter to Iowa Gov.
Kim Reynolds asking her to expand testing for coronaviruses and other infectious diseases.
He also called for the state to expand its testing guidelines and require coronaviral testing for all Iowa residents.
“Iowa has an exceptionally high prevalence of COVID and I know this because I was involved in the early testing of patients in the 1990s,” Smith wrote.
“The COVID testing of all Iowa people was limited to patients who had previously tested positive for COV-2 or COV.
COVID was then known to be the most contagious respiratory virus.”
A coronavitamin and supplement supplement is an important part of the coronavalent vaccine.
The vitamin and supplement is used by health care providers and has been shown to be protective against COVID.
“We know that COVID is a disease of the immune system and we know that this is the cause of the elevated levels of COV antibodies that we have seen in people who have COVID,” Smith said.
“And yet, our state has been extremely lax about coronaviol and coronavid testing.”
“I have been asking the governor’s office to expand the COVID immunization program to include people of all ages, ethnicities, income levels, educational attainment, and health care settings,” Smith continued.
“It is my belief that this should be extended to include those who live in Iowa and who have not yet gotten vaccinated.
The state has not tested them, so if they live in our state and they are in good health and not showing COV antibody levels, it is time to take them seriously.”
Mental Health and Behavioral Health Center of Des Moines, which is one of the state’s top mental health and behavioral health facilities, has already started accepting people for COVAID testing, including those who are HIV positive, pregnant, or have a history of mental illness.
The center also offers free, confidential consultation and treatment.
“This is a very important step toward getting more people vaccinated and to help keep people with mental illness out of the hospital and back into their homes,” said Dr. Lisa T. Smith of the Mental Health and Behavioural Health Center.
“This is an exciting and important step forward.”
In addition to Smith’s letter, a state health department spokeswoman released a statement saying the department will continue to provide the vaccine to anyone who is eligible for it.
The Iowa Health and Human Services Department said the state will soon begin accepting new Medicaid applicants for CONV-19 testing and that the state expects to have the number of COVAIDS tested in its system in full by the end of February.
“I would like to thank Dr. Smith for his commitment to public health and his call to expand screening to everyone in Iowa,” said spokeswoman Lisa P. Saffran.
“We are working closely with Iowa Health to provide a complete list of all the new COVAIDs and the number will be made available soon.
The department is working to expand COVAids testing to people who are already eligible for Medicaid. “
