A healthcare worker has publicly called out a patient who tested positive for COVID-19 but went out shopping instead of isolating.
TikTok user @eliicoco shamed the risky behavior on TikTok while she was at a Ross store after she got off from work.
While waiting to pay, she noticed a woman in the checkout line in front of her whose nose she had swabbed hours earlier while testing for COVID-19.
‘When you see the patient that you swabbed earlier who tested positive for Covid in the line at Ross,’ @eliicoco wrote, filming her own face in the store.
Under her mask and glasses, she looks to the side and then shakes her head in disapproval.
She then cuts to the line in front of her, showing a woman with a shopping cart.
Only the woman’s leggings and sneakers are visible, so her identity isn’t exposed.
‘I told you to stay home and recover sis,’ @eliicoco added, clearly exasperated that the patient was exposing others to the virus.
‘HAHAHA DEAD. Well we’ll all be if y’all don’t go home,’ she wrote in the caption, adding the hashtag #covidiots.
The video has gone viral, earning 1.6 million views on TikTok since it was posted on December 30.
Commenters are quite displeased with the patient.
‘I would have pointed at her and yelled 2319,’ wrote one.
‘And this is why it will NEVER GO AWAY,’ complained another.
‘I’ve given up on people having common sense, morals, and a conscience,’ wrote a third, while a fourth said: ‘And you can’t even call her out in public because of health privacy laws.’
Yet another wrote: ‘I hope she noticed you and was the most embarrassed.’
