Aspirin found to greatly decrease covid hospitalizations

Dr Eddy Betterman

New research out of George Washington University (GWU) has found that over-the-counter aspirin could help to protect the lungs of patients who test “positive” for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19).

An investigative team looked at more than 400 Chinese Virus patients from hospitals across the United States who take aspirin for some other unrelated purpose. Compared to patients who do not take the drug, aspirin users were found to have:

• A 44 percent decreased risk of requiring mechanical ventilation
• A 43 percent decreased risk of needing to be admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU)
• A 47 percent decreased risk of dying in a hospital

“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,” announced Dr. Jonathan Chow from GWU.

“Our research found an association between low-dose aspirin and decreased severity of COVID-19 and death.”

It has been known for some time that low-dose aspirin helps to thin the blood, which in turn can protect against blood clotting issues like a stroke. For people who have had a heart attack or a myocardial infection, taking low-dose aspirin regularly can help protect them against further complications.

Even though the Fauci Flu largely affects the respiratory system, it is also associated with blood clotting, particularly in small blood vessels.

These clots cause tiny blockages in the pulmonary blood system, potentially leading to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).

Taking low-dose aspirin reduces risk of covid infection by 29 percent

Researchers from the Barzilai Medical Center in Israel came to a similar conclusion about aspirin back in March when they tested its effects on Chinese Flu-related blood clots.

What they determined is that aspirin carries with it certain immunological benefits that in and of itself are anti-covid. Taking low-dose aspirin as a healthy person, scientists found, can help reduce the risk of contracting the Wuhan Flu by about 29 percent.

“Aspirin is low cost, easily accessible and millions are already using it to treat their health conditions,” Chow added. “Finding this association is a huge win for those looking to reduce risk from some of the most devastating effects of COVID-19.”
