This appears to have been written by a physician in WA, (about a week old, likely) front-line inpatient care of COVID-19 patients. Not able to verify, but clinical data, as described, is consistent and, if accurate, sounds a loud warning on many fronts
The first two main points I take from this:
1) deaths often due to a fulminating viral cardiomyopathy, not hypoxia
2) steroids seem to worsen outcomes. Author advises d/c ICS (Inhaled Cortico-Steroids) even if on as outpt
If you are a clinician currently seeing COVID-19 patients (world-wide) and have something to share, my DM is open
