“Biden joins Democrats calling on CDC for further racial breakdown of coronavirus pandemic”; this headline is sickening…mr. biden have you no scruples????
Listen up joe biden and your merry band of race baiters: RING THE BELL SCHOOLS IN SESSION!
Current information seems to indicate that the SARS CoV-2, the virus causing the covid-19 pandemic, will attack its victim’s red blood cells.
The Lancet published a paper on March 16, 2020 entitled: COVID-19: consider cytokine storm syndromes and immunosuppression.
This article presents data that shows Covid-19 patients are experiencing organ failure because the virus is displacing O₂ from red blood cell hemoglobin. In doing so, free Iron is released which triggers the “Cytokine Storm”.
Once this complex medical event begins, multiple necessary for life biochemistry pathways become disrupted or entirely blocked. The patient’s condition can turn critical quickly.
Now for mr. biden…many African Americans, have a genetic disorder called Sickle Cell Anemia. This disease causes, “normal red blood cells to deform into stiff, crescent shapes that get stuck in small blood vessels blocking blood flow and oxygen delivery to many parts of the body. This ‘sickling’ is triggered by events such as viral illnesses, cold weather, stress, and low oxygen, among others. If this sickling happens in the lungs, it triggers a cascade of events that causes a severe complication called acute chest syndrome.” [emphasis added] (Dr. Amy Sobota, MD, March 25, 2020)
“While there is no data yet on sickle cell disease and COVID-19, we know that other respiratory viruses cause more severe complications in people with sickle cell disease, including higher rates of hospitalizations, acute chest syndrome, and need for mechanical ventilation. This is true every year for seasonal influenza and was even more pronounced during the H1N1 outbreak.”[emphasis added] [Id. 3-25-2020]
Conclusion: Those who are severely sick with Covid-19 are experiencing many of the same medical conditions of those who have Sickle Cell Anemia. Concomitantly, Sickle Cell patients have most of these symptoms everyday of their lives…their chronic illness requires more hospital visits. At Boston Medical Center, where Dr. Sobota is a pediatric hematologist, they have converted many visits to phone or video to prevent exposure as much as possible.
Listen to what Dr. Sobota is saying, “We have every reason to believe that the novel coronavirus, which has been shown to cause respiratory failure especially in people with underlying illnesses, will be even more serious for people with sickle cell disease.”
mr. joe bidn, stop using sick people to further your racial agenda…You and the democrats are pathetic! You know what…just get out of the room…you clearly are incapable!
