What! I thought the virus affected the lungs. Did he cut his leg off with a chainsaw, caused by coronavirus?

So far it has been common practice that if one seems to have, or is diagnosed with the Chinese virus and dies, the cause of death is Chinese virus even if the victim is run over by a cement truck. So I'm not too sure where this need for thinners and development of blood clots is coming from, but I've not heard of that yet in the constellation of symptoms of the Chinese virus.

From a story I read here on Lucianne on Sat. or Sunday (the days all run together anymore), a woman who nursed her husband through COVID19 noted that "micro emboli" was a feature of this disease - meaning mini blood clots. She even suggested taking aspirin if diagnosed. I don't know anything about this man's problems, but it is sad he's lost his leg.

It was a “serious complication related to his COVID-19”…. While suffering from COVID-10, he developed clots in his leg that cut off circulation to foot and toes. Can happen. He is an attractive young man - only 40 or so - with a beautiful wife and baby. It was said to be a lifesaving operation. Blood thinners had been tried without success. Not fake news. Just another deficient AP story. Why the enmity toward someone we do not know?

Ignore anything published by AP. They are no longer a news organization just another propaganda machine for the left. Take a look at their “news” articles. 99% are anti-Trump op-Ed pieces. They are also poorly written and read like they are written by 9th graders. I guess I should apologize to 9th graders for that remark.

Sorry to hear about anyone having such a tough time with this disease, I hope he recovers. I too am frustrated by these stories of people with horrendous complications and outcomes, but provide no information about why it is so bad for some. Different strains? Pre-existing conditions? OTOH I understand, the hospitals can't divulge personal medical information. it would be nice if a study was gathering all of this data and could release it on an anonymous basis so we could learn more about why it is so severe for some.

I remember that article also, #7. Viral illnesses are often fairly uncomplicated. Rest, fluid and time is most often the recipe for those who come down with them in the U.S. As a health professional, I had the responsibility at times to treat patients who entered extreme physical distress from usually benign conditions. Often there are no known underlying conditions or rational explanations, just rotten luck. In 2009 the actor Dean Winter, who plays “Mayhem” in the Allstate commercials, suffered a relapse of a bacterial illness he contracted as a boy and went into septic shock. His heart stopped in an ambulance and later he had toes, a thumb and part of his nose amputated. He went through all of that and yet it was not him but his brother Scott (who played the arrogant apple-liking Harvard student in “Good Will Hunting“ and the brain damaged inmate in “Oz”) who I once saw pick up a 3 foot Western Diamondback rattlesnake on a hiking trail with his bare hands. Medical tragedies can be extremely random in this life.

This isn’t fake news. Medical information for professions on how to deal with symptoms of PE/DVT (pulmonary emboli or deep vein thrombosis) when the usual testing cannot be employed. When to use anticoagulents. Mr. Cordero was on anticoagulants for COVID-19-related clots in his legs, but that was causing internal bleeding so he could not continue. When the clots were blocking circulation in his leg and foot, amputation was the only option. And these emboli are experienced by a small percentage of victims of COVID-19. When objective imaging is not feasible to confirm or refute a diagnosis of PE, clinicians must rely on clinical assessment based on history, physical findings and other tests. Very limited observational data suggest that up to 5-10% of patients with COVID-19 infection who require mechanical ventilation have acute PE/DVT.

Was he a diabetic? If so, having his leg amputated wasn't due to the coronavirus. It was due to poor circulation.

Could be he has underlying issues related to diabetes maybe. That would do it. But the virus shouldn't have a thing to do with his legs. Now his lungs OTOH would be a different story.

I believe he was on the ventilator for some time - sedated and on his back, not moving. That was probably the cause of the blood clots. I have read that being put on the ventilator can cause strokes and that 80% of people on the ventilator die. It is not the panacea that some governors would have you believe.

#13, the pre-existing condition was circulation problems in the leg, requiring blood thinners to avoid the clotting which he had previously had. The virus meant that he couldn't take the blood thinners, so his pre-existing clotting problem caused them to have to remove the leg.

At a former open-pit copper mine filled with billions of gallons of toxic water, sirens and loud pops from propane cannons echo off the granite walls to scare away birds so they don't land. After several thousand migrating snow geese perished in the Berkeley Pit's acidic, metal-laden waters in 2016, its owners deployed a sophisticated arsenal to frighten away flocks, including lasers, drones, fireworks and remote-controlled boats. Montana Resources already had been hazing incoming birds with spotlights and rifle shots into the water — and a spokesman says those existing deterrents likely helped the company avoid a penalty or prosecution under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
