CV Central - 4/20/2020 - "Covid Considered - SARS, HIV, and More"
Season Two begins another ten week journey into Covid and its to be seen impacts with Episode 51. Today's episode is all about the coronavirus, and what we are seeing from patients. We see a disease that while still plenty fatal is causing heart failure, kidney failure, hypoxia, and immune weakness for weeks after recovery and with growing questions about what immunity, if any, conveys for those who have had this. A study from the Atlantic leaves us wondering if more people have had Covid, would this be better or worse as we hear survivor tales that all is not right afterward. Perhaps, we should listen most closely to Luc Montagnier, part of the team that discovered HIV when he says he believes someone was playing with SARS and HIV to leave us this most unpleasant malady.
