“What we found in her lungs, was the development of these cavities throughout both the lungs. This kind of resembles a ‘Swiss cheese’ defect,” said Dr. Ankit Bharat, the hospital’s chief of thoracic surgery and surgical director of the Northwestern Medicine Lung Transplant Program, at a press conference. “This has been consistently seen in the post-mortem analysis of patients who have expired from COVID-19.”
These kinds of cavities, he explained, give bacteria a chance to grow and cause sepsis – which he said the patient was experiencing.
“There were really no functional parts of the lungs left,” he said.
The virus is not remotely related to the influenza and just jumped hosts, it’s no surprise that it doesn’t attack just our lungs in the “normal” way that well-established respiratory viruses do. The fact that people seem to assume this is a reflection of their lack of relevant education and critical thinking.
Is the mortality rate as bad as SARS or MERS? Thankfully no. But that doesn’t mean it is simply another seasonal flu/cold and we should be complacent. We know so little about this virus and disease, if you guys are truly red-pilled you’d be cautious and let those survival instincts kick in. Don’t wear a mask and avoid crowds because they tell you to, do it because of reality and the desire to survive and procreate and live today to fight tomorrow.
I stockpiled masks when they told us they didn’t work and not to wear them. I stocked up on supplies when they said the flu was worse and it wasn’t going to be a problem and praise China. I covertly practiced social distancing at work before the general public was even well aware or concerned about this. I was ahead of the curve because I knew this could be a bad virus given what little we knew at the time and I was damned if I’d rely on the WHO or the government to give me the heads up or facts to protect my family. It’s become political now because it suits the main parties to do so, but don’t get swept up in this bullshit. Focus on the science, the potential risk, and yourself.
>>993127(OP) >NOOOOO WHY AREN'T YOU AFRAID OF THE HECKIN' CORONARINO VIRUS ANYMORE!?!??! LOOK AT THIS PIECE OF MEAT LOAF WITH CHEESE MELTED ONTO IT, THIS WAS A WOMAN'S LUNGS AFTER SHE GOT INFECTED! WEAR THE FUCKING MASK! STAY THE FUCK INSIDE! BE AFRAID!
whatever happened to 'grey glue'? whatever happened to the whole thing about it actually being attacking via restricting blood oxygenation directly? what about the spooky neurological symptoms causing stroke-like non-strokes?
they still don't know the symptoms of this 'pandemic', nine months in. it's a farce.
IT DAMAGES THE LUNGS
YOU WILL DIE IN TWO WEEKS
IF YOU DONT DIE, THEN EVERYONE YOU LOVE WILL DIE!!
lmao its all bullshit to stir up the masses and ruin Trumps chances of reelection, the WHOLE FUCKING WORLD is in on it too
you gotta be a schizo to understand it, but if you are it all clicks
Any regex fags have a good COVID filter? The shlling quality has fallen off a cliff.
You are trying to pass off a man with an Anime avatar as a medical expert.
Get better at your job, or kill yourself. This is pathetic. I'm not even mad, I'm disgusted at how shitty you are at agitprop.
I physically counted how many patients were tested for covid vs. other dx, like flu, on my unit one night and counted 20/21 were tested for covid (just had an admit from ED so the results were not likely processed yet) with all being "positive". 5/21 were tested for flu (with some results being over a month old, as in no recent retest) with 1 being positive (coinfected with covid & flu). It's just strange how we are lacking a comprehensive understanding of our own patients' overall health status and we are "treating them"?
Also, as an ICU we have an abnormal amount of people being admitted to our unit with abnormally low thresholds for ICU status. Seeing more pts being able to eat with ICU status is a detail even a brainlet HUC can see as being odd.
But sure, these pts decompensate "so fast" so we admit in case there's a need to intubate. What about the odds of being mismanagement since now no one is testing for flu and other resp issues. But of course it's fine to trial all of these medications like hydrochloroquine, or remdesivir, or iNO trials on our patients and go on TV for general clout and social points.
During flu epidemics, the old people usually don't die to flu itself but secondary pneumonia. Corona is just very good at making your white blood cells go berserk in lungs, inflaming the tissues and resulting in severe secondary pneumonia. That's how a classmate who is an army medic explained it to me anyway.
If you have bad reaction/weakened system, corona basically makes your lungs so inflamed pieces of them rot. Nasty shit.
So? What about that lab organ growing technology muricans were bragging about? >oh look what we re researching
Really? It s still not ready?
Guys, take a look at apache helicopters, notice the amount of technology invested. Do you even invest in shit that is not army related? Even colonisation of the moon sounds like "ooo new places to build army bases"
