Price of ‘Natural Immunity:’ Long Covid study finds severe undetected abnormality in lungs

    Findings raise possibility Covid may cause microscopic damage not detected by normal tests


    Guardian: Abnormalities have been identified in the lungs of long Covid patients that could offer a potential explanation for why some people experience breathlessness long after their initial infection.

    The findings, from a pilot study involving 36 patients, raise the possibility that Covid may cause microscopic damage to the lungs that is not detected using routine tests.

    Breathlessness is a symptom in the majority of long Covid patients, but it has been unclear whether this is linked to other factors such as changes in breathing patterns, tiredness, or something more fundamental.

    “It is the first study to demonstrate lung abnormalities in [people with long Covid] who are breathless and where other investigations are unremarkable,” said Fraser. “It does suggest the virus is causing some kind of persistent abnormality within the microstructure of the lungs or in the pulmonary vasculature.”

    More work would be required to clarify the clinical significance of the findings, she added, including how the apparent abnormalities relate to breathlessness.

    Claire Steves, a clinical senior lecturer at King’s College London who was not involved in the work, said the findings would be of significant interest to anyone living with long-term breathlessness after Covid.

    “They suggest that the efficiency of the lung in doing what it is meant to do – exchange carbon dioxide and oxygen – may be compromised, even though the structure of the lung appears normal,” she said.  Read more…

    1. I know of at least one person, a coworker who reluctantly due to underlying health concerns, a young woman who ot the vacceine and fell ill with Guillain Barre syndrome within a couple weeks of her injection. In fairness and for the sake of science can we demand the release of all potential adverse reaction incidences to the vacceine? That should be seen a rhetorical.

    2. It has also been brought to our attention that cannabinoids attach to ACE-2 inhibitors and can essentially block the SAR2 virus from entering the system. CBD has a very promising role in preventing and treating this so called long COVID in combination with the other not to be mentioned treatments and preventative therapies for this Bio weapon: A weapon that has unleashed almost more insanity, surveillance, and “unAmerican”, security measures upon the world than an actual world war could ever do.
