(Reuters)   Kidney injury found in 1/3 of hospitalized virus patients. It's getting to the point where it's easier and faster to say what it doesn't affect. Apropos of nothing, how are your earlobes doing?   (reuters.com) divider line

consider how they are treated as well as the virus.

My boss is a surgeon & med school professor.  At the university hospital, they came closer to running out of kidney machines than they did ventilators.

Those mini blood clots get into any part of your body that has a lot of blood flowing through it - like kidneys and liver.

When it's that many things, it's usually one thing.

COVID-19 is thought of as a respiratory disease and it's certainly transmitted that way, but it attacks the blood vessels.  This creates a large number of tiny vascular occlusions (blood clots) that can go anywhere.  Lungs, heart, brain, feet, kidneys, liver, intestines.

The observation that COVID-19 affects everything is due to the simple fact that every living part of your body has blood flowing through it.  Everything is fair game for this bug.  Yes, even your earlobes, though that's not as likely (and if it's happened, something ICU staff isn't going to care too much about).

Yeah, that will happen when something attacks blood vessels.

So, investing in dialysis firms would probably be a safe bet. Gotcha

This text is now purple: Yeah, that will happen when something attacks blood vessels.

Username. . . affected by the COVID?

So...

Loss of smell and taste, severe blood clots, Kawasaki's in children (normally ultra-rare), sudden death, long term lung damage, kidney damage, cardiac complications...none of which are symptoms that have ever been presented in a natural coronavirus in human history.

Draw your own conclusions.

Those symptoms have been associated with a natural coronavirus

Cool cool cool. My foot has been kind of numb for a few days, and I'm getting that pressure on my chest. No fever, but I'm definitely not digesting things very well.

Hopefully I don't drop suddenly. Would be a nasty way to celebrate 30 years. Hopefully I can fight this off without having to be hospitalized.

The virus... Attacks a receptor protein that is present all throughout the body in huge numbers?
