‘A Lot Worse Than What I Was Expecting’: Watch a Journalist Take the Coronavirus Test at a Drive-Thru Clinic
A local staff photographer for the Charleston South Carolina-based Post and Courier, Lauren Petracca, shared her experience of being tested for the coronavirus Tuesday on Twitter via a makeshift drive-thru.
Pulling up to the testing area in her vehicle, Petracca was met by a man in a hazmat suit — who proceeded to lean into the photographer’s vehicle and insert a testing swab deep into both of her nostrils. He then placed the swab into a test tube to be sent off for diagnostics analysis for Covid-19.
“That was a lot worse than what I was expecting,” Petracca said, towards the end of the two-minute-long video.
