Whoopsie! Health Care Company Accidentally Tells 600,000 People They Had the Coronavirus
Contrary to how I may come across, I really do take the 'rona seriously. But if we're being honest, some of you insist on making it difficult for me to do so. Every other day, there is a new story of an arbitrary regulation or some idiot somewhere who can't do math (see SOME FLORIDA COVID TESTING IS OFF BY ONLY ... 89% and A NASHVILLE MAN WAS TOLD HE TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID. PROBLEM: HE NEVER TOOK A TEST FOR COVID ...). But for SIX HUNDRED THOUSAND PEOPLE to be told that they had the coronavirus when they didn't have the coronavirus?
The story goes like this. Tricare, the military health care provider, was emailing people who had the 'rona to hopefully do something with their antibodies, but instead of emailing just those people, they emailed everybody in the area.
"In an attempt to educate beneficiaries who live close to convalescent plasma donation centers about collection opportunities, you received an email incorrectly suggesting you were a COVID-19 survivor. You have not been identified as a COVID-19 survivor and we apologize for the error and any confusion it may have caused," the company wrote.
I haven't hit you with my favorite .gif in a while.
Here's why these stories matter. We're constantly told we need to trust the experts because they know more than we do. They are more qualified. And yes, while the science people doing science things are more qualified when it comes to sciencely studying the actual virus, the people collecting the data and putting it in spreadsheets are barely more qualified than we are to convert carbon dioxide to oxygen. Or is it oxygen to carbon dioxide? I was never very sciency, but I do know know when someone f***s up. And the people in charge of collecting the data and the information we all need to make important decisions seem to be doing that a lot.
