She also revealed that she can't get tested.

Comedian Kathy Griffin says she has been in unbearable pain amid the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic but still has been unable to receive a test.

The 59-year-old's post was more a way of calling out Donald Trump in the post though, who'd previously tweeted that America has done far more testing than any other nation.

"I was sent to the #COVID19 isolation ward room in a major hospital ER from a separate urgent care facility after showing UNBEARABLY PAINFUL symptoms", Griffin wrote. Despite this, she said the hospital would not test her for the novel coronavirus. Others couldn't believe that Kathy Griffin would take the time to blast the President from a hospital bed.

"The doctor was going through the boxes and going through the boxes [on a form] and she kept saying, like, 'Ugh, because of the lungs, the fever and the kind of cough ... you don't meet the CDC requirements, '" Griffin told the outlet.

"Probably by today, we will have done more tests than South Korea did in eight weeks, in the last eight days", Dr. Birx said during a Fox News town hall this week.

NPR reported that the United States had surpassed South Korea in coronavirus tests, but added that the latter surpassed the U.S.in per capita testing.

As of Wednesday, the latest data from the official COVID Tracking Project claims there have been 484,062 tests done (and counting) in the United States, with 65,497 coming out positive.

Kathy Griffin is now home from the hospital, and she is being treated for an abdominal infection.
