In my opinion, we have lived with this virus for months and you are safe to go to your local blood bank. My feeling is that blood will be a priority sometime here in the near future. Thank you all who took time to read this and decided to go give blood. Hope everyone is well!!

The problem, however, is that we are in a national shortage of blood products because people are too scared to leave their homes to give blood. Now the real reason I am sending this. If you truly want to help in this very difficult time, go give blood.

The reason hydroxychloroquine works is because it prevents this binding to hemoglobin similar to what it does to prevent/treat malaria. For those that are real sick, however, the cascade could be too far down the path for the drug to work. I believe in the next few days to weeks you will start seeing people discuss blood exchange as a treatment regimen for those who are critically ill.

The reason for this, I believe, is that it came thru this area in December and January. The real reason I am posting this, however, is that we now know how the virus works. It binds to hemoglobin like malaria and displaces a heme ion. This prevents oxygen delivery and that displaced ion has direct toxic effects to the major organs. This results in multi system organ failure.

Based on cases I have seen this past winter I strongly believe that we have been living with COVID-19 in the U.S. since at least December and possibly earlier. For the past 3 weeks I have seen zero hospital cases.

I rarely go on Facebook but felt compelled to this AM. I am a pulmonary and critical care physician and because of that have a unique perspective on this pandemic.

Hi Quods, just jumping in quick to let you know I am OK. So much going on between my sister and me it’s becoming overwhelming. Once I know everything I will update. Tightness in my chest went away.I did call the doctor about it yesterday. I’m on strict orders not to watch TV at all. That’s easy part. Too much mis information and all that does is give you stress.The county called me today scared the shit out of me. I was like how did you get my number? So the lady started asking me a bunch of

He was correct.

He should not have apologized, much less resigned.

The pussyfication of our armed forces is one of the greatest challenges to our NATSEC today.

Army undersecretary James McPherson has been picked to be the new acting Navy Secretary.


Beautiful photo. I haven’t been there in years.

My son was there yesterday but staying at his grandmother’s house about 20 minutes in off 40.

Now that he knows I had a flu, he may never come home.

If we have no standard for judging whether anything is right, how on earth can we decide that the world is wrong?

Your criticism is well placed.

Crozier appears to be a good guy, but mistaken and arrogant.

Had he followed the chain of command or even used the proper communications channel, he'd still be in command of TR.

His boss was two doors away and he never went there.

Besides his errors in fact, he made a huge error in judgement.

NAVSEC was right.
