Patients are progressively desaturating (losing o2 in their blood), & as a result, it’s leading to organ failures
Without the iron ion, hemoglobin can no longer bind to oxygen, rendering the red blood cells useless.
Many doctors are starting to believe that they are operating under a false notion of pneumonia, & possibly treating the wrong symptoms on a systematic basis throughout the country.
It is instead that the affected hemoglobin have been stripped of their ability to carry oxygen, resulting in hypoxia.
The only way to try to keep them going is by delivering oxygen or a transfusion of red blood cells.
HCQ interferes with COVID-19 surface spike proteins and prevents them from dislodging the hemoglobin in the red blood cells.
In conclusion, Physicians may need to re-evaluate treatment options and their basis-of-understanding for COVID-19, in light of its newly realized ability to induce hypoxemia in the patient.
Reactive oxygen species in erythrocytes are generated through heme degradation.
Displaced Fe, released after viral attack on hemoglobin, is thought to be responsible for extensive free radical damage to the lungs.
He further reiterates this notion of hypoxia.
