Why would someone who claims to be severely immunodeficient run to the emergency room for every ache and pain if covid is rampant there?

    If they are immunodeficient then getting checked out for any potential infection more than outweighs the risk.  Outside covid anything could be a risk even athletes foot.

    If they are immunosuppressed they are doing the right thing. When I wa undergoing chemo I had a special number to call if I had so much as an increased temperature who would get an ambulance out to me bypassing the normal ER/999 route.
