Multiple organ damage in all ages, relapses, and sudden deaths
Sorry to be a downer. I'm about to give a video on this subject, and before I do I'm going to start this blog post to catalog all the reports.
First, the good news
In Singapore, nCov has developed mutations that make it less harmful.
No coronavirus in cats and dogs.
Free concerts streaming online, many from the musicians' homes.
Despite what you're hearing, there are treatments for SARS-CoV2. (chloroquine + azithromycin) I would add that these are synthetic versions of natural therapies.
Monkeys cannot be reinfected with coronavirus. (those folks we thought were re-infected probably hadn't recovered.)
Licorice (among other things) works really well at stopping coronavirus from entry.
The bad news
New evidence young people are falling seriously ill.
Ages 21-40 make up the bulk of Covid patients in Tennessee, followed closely by those 41-50. See for yourself.
More than 40% of those hospitalized are under 54 years old.
Half of people get digestive symptoms before respiratory symptoms: loss of appetite and diarrhea mostly, with some pain. Those that have digestive symptoms first tend to fare more poorly.
SARS-CoV2 invades the digestive tract including the esophagus and salivary glands, small intestine, large intestine, and liver. It is expressed in saliva and stool as well.
There's a protease inhibitor on the Japanese formulary that's working to stop viral replication and with no obvious negative side effects. In general, when it comes to protease inhibitors, would prefer natural enzymatic therapy like medicinal mushrooms, fermented foods, zinc + cinchona bark, glutathione + selenium, EDTA, etc. , but it's promising to know that the approach works and there are seemingly safe high-tech pharmaceuticals.
Renound French infectious disease specialist uses hydroxychloroquine: 75% are non-contagious after 6 days versus 10% of those not treated.
Blood Type A most risk, Blood type O least (not a huge difference)
SARS-CoV2 attacks the testicles
SARS-CoV2 can last over 5 weeks...more than 37 days
You can spread it without symptoms.
Active or latent Tuberculosis is a serious risk factor
High blood pressure is a major risk.
Survivors left with multiple (kidney, lung, testicular) organ damage
Although severe respiratory distress was present in many (but not all) who died the cause of death was almost always cardiovascular. Approximately 50% of the most critically ill patient's did not have pneumonia.
15-20% of the 20-40 year-olds that get infected end up in the hospital. 4-5% of them need UCI
This severity ... is usually more typical of someone who has a near drowning experience ... or people who inhale caustic gas.
John's Hopkins: "Prepare for a 1918-scenario"
Practice distancing and hygiene always. 80% of SARS-CoV2 spread is by people without symptoms. (and here)
