This inflammation (which is what dexamethasone treats) generates respiratory and cardiovascular problems; the feared thrombi that have left sequelae in numerous patients, as happened in the legs to the deputy of Vox, Ortega Smith.
Precisely, Marc, the 34-year-old who entered the hospital with mild symptoms of COVID-19, suffered a pulmonary thrombosis and two heart attacks of myocardium as a result of the complication of its infection. His youth and good health did not serve as a protective shield for a virus to which, many young people like him, seem to have lost respect. Before news like the holidays in the United States where The first person who gets this SARS “wins a pot”, Marc appeals to youth: “No joke, protect yourselves from COVID”.
