In some cases, and we now understand why, the inflammatory reaction in the airways of the lungs causes thin sheets of fibrin to be laid down over the inside lining of the bronchioles and alveoli. Fibrin is the material that makes up blood clots. The bronchioles are the smallest airways in the lungs. The alveoli are the air exchange sacs that transfer oxygen into the blood and carbon dioxide out of the blood.
This finding was recently confirmed during a phone conversation that I had with a New York City pathologist who has done about 20 autopsies on patients who have died from this infection. Because this occurs at the microscopic level this cannot be seen on x-ray or CT scans.
The second part of this illness occurs in some people, based on their genetics, at around 8 days. At that time, an allergic reaction to the spike proteins, manufactured by the virus, begins to occur. The allergic reaction causes swelling in the airways, much like an asthma attack. People feel shortness of breath. They breathe fast and shallowly. Oxygen levels go down. Headaches, fatigue, and weakness develop. Anxiety goes up because oxygen is our most important need.
Dr Chetty from South Africa has developed a protocol to treat this allergic reaction and has seen excellent result. This includes an antihistamine, an anticoagulant, a leukotriene suppressant, and an oral steroid. His results have been incredible with usually a 1-2 day turnaround.
Below you will find a link to his video. This is a video by Dr Chetty that I have edited to about 30 minutes dealing just with his version of the illness and its treatment. The full unedited 60-minute version of his interview is filled with political and social comments. I wish to remain neutral regarding that and focus just on the medical, prevention and treatment aspects of this illness. If you are interested in the link to the full video, you can text me.
Based on this information we are now going to modify our recommendations for prevention and early intervention of this Cinfection.
When oxygen levels get below 88, cellular damage begins to occur in the other parts of the body. If breathing becomes difficult or oxygen levels get below 90, you should go to the hospital for further evaluation. You can buy a pulse-ox monitor for around $30.
Phase two treatment
Do not use these in first week of the treatment unless the illness seems to be rapidly progressing. If oxygen levels get before 88 consistently, you must also be seen by your health care provider or go to the hospital emergency room.
No additional treatment is needed if you are on the road to recovery or completely recovered after one week. In most cases the virus has run its course, leaving behind damage ranging from none to a lot.
If one appears to relapse, it is very unlikely that it is not from reinfection of the virus, but more likely, an allergic reaction to the spike protein that has been made by the virus.
Treatment for that is like any other allergic reaction. Do not start these in phase one.
