    COVID-19 And Erythrocyte Aggregates: An Intensivists Experience When Being Affected

    COVID-19 pandemic has killed over 310,000 individuals as of 17 May 2020. Healthcare providers are profoundly vulnerable to be contaminated instead of taking every single careful step. Although the respiratory tract and the lungs are the target organs some complications may develop even at the introductory phase of this sickness course. Hemoconcentration with raised serum ferritin levels is one of the dangerous conditions that may occur from chronic hypoxia and severe dehydration because of increased insensible loss due to continuous excessive perspirations. Recent posthumous pulmonary tissue studies revealed that the viral infective mechanism, as well as the miniaturized erythrocyte aggregates, are additionally a significant contributing phenomenon to create acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Hematological issues require to deal proactively alongside other vital organ protection protocols for better outcomes. This article will depict the disease sequence of an intensivist working in a corona unit after being infected by COVID-19.

      Review text

      Dear authors, thank you for asking me to review this. This article is very likely to get rejected without peer review from any journal. The title does not make grammatical sense, neither does the rest of the article. I am sorry if this disappoints you but this needs to be 'proof-read' from someone whose first language is English so that the correct grammar and vocabulary is used. I am not sure why a CT scan was done ( not in line with current international guidance such as the BTSI( as well as non-proven treatments given, outside of randomised clinical trials. Maybe the situation in low income countries is different and maybe you should concentrate on that. You might be able to concentrate more on the points of return to work after a critical illness, or the anxieties around such a disease. Regards, Dr Avinash Aujayeb
