|There might be another way to think about the covid battle.|
The antibodies in some of the recovered patients have been low.
This could mean that these people didn't mount enough of an immune response to actually do damage to the lungs (lungs get damaged in the crossfire between the covid and antibodies). It's sort of like being hurt by friendly fire. When the lungs get damaged pneumonia can follow. Older people don't do as well with pneumonia as younger people. Older people don't do as well with covid as younger people.
The hydroxychloroquine might be effective under this thought. The hydroxy is used in autoimmune disease ((lupus,rheumatoid arthritis, etc) because it retards the immune system response and therefore doesn't let the body harm itself. Therefore the limited immune response is enough to slow down covid but not fierce enough to damage the lungs.
Don't count on this theory, i'm just an amateur.

Antibodies don't attack lung tissue. Still batting 0.00 I see.

|I guess i should have elaborated. Substitute immune system and cytokines for antibodies. I used the word antibody as a metaphor for the immune response. I guess i shouldn't do that sort of thing since you have trouble deciphering metaphors.

And it's ITN up to bat next. Oh what's this! He's dropped the bat and he's walking away. Mumbled something about RQAA and there he goes, back into the dugout.
