"Blood Thinners May Help Patients with Severe COVID-19 Infections, Study Finds"
Blood thinning drugs could help save some patients who are the most severely affected by the new coronavirus, doctors reported Wednesday. The findings from a team at Mount Sinai Hospital could help with a troubling problem that has shocked and horrified doctors treating coronavirus patients around the world -- blood clots throughout the body that complicate an already hard-to-treat disease. The team now says it is running experiments to see which anticoagulants may work best, and at which doses.
