Aspirin Massively Lowers Risk From COVID for Death and Severe Effects — George Washington University

Acetylsalicylic acid combats blood clotting and reduces inflammation

Over-the-counter aspirin could protect the lungs of COVID-19 patients and minimize the need for mechanical ventilation, according to new research at the George Washington University.

The team investigated more than 400 COVID patients from hospitals across the United States who take aspirin unrelated to their COVID disease, and found that the treatment reduced the risk of several parameters by almost half: reaching mechanical ventilation by 44%, ICU admissions by 43%, and overall in-hospital mortality by 47%.

“As we learned about the connection between blood clots and COVID-19, we knew that aspirin – used to prevent stroke and heart attack – could be important for COVID-19 patients,” said Dr. Jonathan Chow of the study team. “Our research found an association between low-dose aspirin and decreased severity of COVID-19 and death.”

Low-dose aspirin is a common treatment for anyone suffering from blood clotting issues or in danger of stroke, including most people who had a heart attack or a myocardial infarction. Although affecting the respiratory system, the coronavirus has been associated with small blood vessel clotting, causing tiny blockages in the pulmonary blood system, leading to ARDS – acute respiratory distress syndrome.

Israeli researchers reached similar results in a preliminary trial at the Barzilai Medical Center in March.

In addition to its effect on blood clots, they found that aspirin carried immunological benefits and that the group taking it was 29% less likely to become infected with the virus in the first place.

“Aspirin is low cost, easily accessible and millions are already using it to treat their health conditions,” said Chow. “Finding this association is a huge win for those looking to reduce risk from some of the most devastating effects of COVID-19.” [And a huge loss for the Vaccine Taliban, the lockdown fanatics, and Big Pharma who will now do everything in their power to bury the findings and play up side effects of this cheap and time-tested substance.]

Aspirin, while having a substantial effect on reducing blood clots, can also cause bleeding disorders and stomach ulcers and has harmful side effects on patients to whom the treatment is not indicated. [It causes micro bleeding but in a healthy individual this resolves itself in no more than four days as the body adapts to daily doses.] Be advised that new treatments should never be started without consulting a healthcare provider.

This is why they advised against its use, in early March 2020, I was told not to use it if I have covid like symptoms. I did use it anyway. Makes sense.

How many have these Pychos killed! Doctors said from the beginning that ventilators were killing people. Now we can just use asprin, WTF! It is all a lie, It is just a bad flu which makes sense because virus strains mutate and probably it was the bad flu going around 2018, remember. the elderly died then, too!
