A message from Dr. Armin Tehrany: Good news on our global fight

Posted on

From the local precautionary measures to the global fight against the coronavirus pandemic, we continue to endure challenges every day but we do not concede defeat. Today, I have some good news I wanted to share with you. A recent Wall Street Journal article suggests that researchers in Italy found evidence that through trial and error, doctors and scientists around the world are seeing a decrease in death from this horrible pandemic. What the studies are showing is that most death cases were the result of the overwhelming response from patients’ immune systems going on overdrive together with blood clots that created deadly situations. To prevent this deadly immune response, a cocktail of drug combinations is given – sort of like a customized solution, and so far, it looks like this is working; the number of deaths has steadily declined and recovery is gaining ground. In addition, the FDA has given the green light for a new blood test that can potentially serve as an early warning system for patients who are at most risk of having their immune systems go on overdrive to fight coronavirus. This is indeed good news that strengthens our hope to save more lives.
