I actually wrote this article in March of this year. I felt that the Lord wanted me to bring this out again. In recent days we are hearing much about the Cytokine Storm. I have been researching this since early 2020.
Lately, I had been reading about countries who have stopped the Cov-19 Vaccines because of blood clots causing heart attacks and strokes. I remembered last year reading about blood clots forming in people who had the Virus and had formed antibodies, but soon developed life threatening clots.
Here are some excerpts from my article on Cytokine Storms:
I have read much about Cytokine Storms in my research on Covid-19. This horrific “overdrive” of the Immune system is responsible for most deaths from the Virus.
If that is not scary enough, many health care professionals have said that a fast-tracked vaccine will most likely cause a Cytokine storm in people.
What exactly is a Cytokine Storm?
This fatal condition happens in late stage Covid 19. The patient’s immune system emits an enormous number of “Cytokines” (proteins) into the blood stream and instead of the immune system fighting the Virus, the Cytokines cause severe inflammation throughout the body and attacks all organs. This causes multi- organ failure and the patient dies.
Cytokine storm in children
We have all been reading that very few children even get Covid, and if they do – it is very mild or asymptomatic. I read an alarming study about children and Covid which every parent needs to read:
What we know about the new Covid-19-linked illness in children
A rare, Kawasaki-like disease is striking kids who have coronavirus antibodies.Doctors in at least 20 US states have seen kids who have fallen sick with a rare inflammatory illness similar to a condition known as Kawasaki disease. Symptoms include fever and inflammation and can affect organs, including the heart. The majority of the children have tested positive for Covid-19 or antibodies to the virus, and three have died.
Doctors and scientists have been calling the syndrome in children “A Kawaski-like” syndrome, but it is a Cytokine Storm and can be fatal.
New York City alone has reported 147 cases of the pediatric inflammatory syndrome so far, with about a third of cases occurring in children younger than 5, and about half between the ages of 5 and 14.
Clusters of the illness have also popped up in other Covid-19 hot spots, including California, New Jersey, and Illinois. The potentially deadly syndrome is also affecting a small number of children in other countries, including the UK, Spain, and now Italy.
A peer-reviewed study out of Italy, published May 13 in The Lancet, details the cases of 10 children who presented with this condition during the Covid-19 outbreak there. Eight of the 10 children tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes Covid-19 in an antibody test.
“Our study provides the first clear evidence of a link between SARS-CoV-2 infection and this inflammatory condition, and we hope it will help doctors around the world as we try to get to grips with this unknown virus,” said Lorenzo D’Antiga, lead author of the study from the Hospital Papa Giovanni XXIII in Bergamo, Italy, in a statement.
Lauren Henderson, an attending physician at Boston Children’s Hospital and assistant professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School, called it, “a very important study.”
Blood Clots Are Another Dangerous COVID-19 Mystery
April 24, 2020 — Hooman Poor, MD, was tired of watching his patients die, and it looked like another was slipping away.
She was on a ventilator, but it wasn’t helping. Oxygen wasn’t getting to her organs. Acid was building in her blood. Her body was in shock. Her kidneys were failing, but he couldn’t put her on dialysis. She was too sick and probably wouldn’t survive it.
Poor, a pulmonologist and critical care specialist at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, was about to call her family to deliver the crushing news.
As he studied her lab results, he noticed that like many other COVID-19 patients, she had high levels of protein pieces called D-dimers, which are left over when the body breaks up blood clots. Her body was desperately trying, but failing, to clear blood clots, Poor believed.
Safety of Hydroxychloroquine:
This drug has been approved by the FDA for over 60 years. I have a friend who has a severe type of Rheumatoid Arthritis. She has taken two 200 mg HCQ every day for the last 17 years with no side effects!
I am praying for so many people right now. We have Covid in our extended family.
Reading God’s Word and praying to Him is what we need to do.
