Blood thinners may increase coronavirus survival by 50%

Blood thinners may increase coronavirus survival by 50%, decrease intubations 30%

Patients on a therapeutic dose of anticoagulants, or blood thinners, which was defined as a full dose, by the study’s authors, and those on a prophylactic, or lower, doses of the blood-thinning medication had a reduced risk of death by 50% in patients infected with novel coronavirus and decreased need for intubations by 30%, according to the observational study by a team of Mount Sinai researchers in New York that was published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

The study was developed after it was discovered that many patients infected with coronavirus developed blood clots, according to the researchers. The research team investigated the survival and death rates for patients placed on therapeutic and prophylactic doses of blood thinners, including oral antithrombotics, subcutaneous heparin and intravenous heparin compared to those not taking anticoagulant medications.

  3. Fascinating. While this virus is raging on, Dr. John Campbell says on his youtube channel the deaths from the virus are dropping. He attributed to the virus mutating to a less virulent form and better treatments as our understanding of this bug increases. I don’t care which. I am just glad death rates are dropping.
