    Wow…they are finding with Covid-19 issues with angiotensin 1 or 2 can lead to lots of ROS in the endothelium and an increase in Von Willebrand factor elongation…thus leading to clotting…which is what is making this disease so much than many other respiratory illnesses. It sounds like this guy already figured this out ahead of time. Are there any studies where blood is taken when the sample is collected for the PCR so they can measure if stress level at time of infection correlates with severity of disease?
