Covid-19 deaths could have been prevented ? Due to exponential viral spread, our delay in action was devastating. This testing fiasco crippled vital early contact tracing efforts when hot spots could have been contained. We would have been better off from a health standpoint, and economically.

Up to now, vaccination has meant injecting a dead virus (or bacteria), or one that has been weakened and can only poorly replicate, or parts of the virus, or suchlike.

Very few patients know sepsis symptoms

"A big problem is that many patients who want to cure themselves with an uncomplicated Covid-19 disease at home do not notice in time when it turns into sepsis," explained Reinhart .
