And so, my article covered all these different parts to this pandemic.
So, the dyspnoea and the loss of smell and taste became my diagnostic tool to confirm whether a patient actually had a coronavirus infection or not.
Some patients presented to me with a mild onset breathlessness on the eighth day and some more moderate and some very severe.
Now, part of my toolbox was hydroxychloroquine, and I reserved it for those patients in that first days that had what I thought was the high viral load.
But I was also suspicious that omicron, with all the changes we saw in it, might be a new engineered vaccine virus.
I pitched a tent, a proper clinic tent, outside my practice in the parking lot, because I trust ventilation and sunlight as the best way to protect myself from this virus.
And there were a lot of results showing culture positivity in the first seven days, and that tied into what I saw, people had a viral infection.
So, looking at the patients that I treated from the first four or five that presented with the sleeplessness and were put on to steroids, and I noticed this difference in the presentation.
