A Supercomputer Analyzed Covid-19 and an Interesting New Theory Has Emerged

Really great write-up here (and *free* even though it's on Medium)

A Supercomputer Analyzed Covid-19 and an Interesting New Theory Has Emerged

The new explanatory hypothesis involves bradykinin. It seems to explain more of the symptoms than any other hypothesis to date, as well as offer several ways of treating them. As was mentioned in another thread, Vitamin D is also involved.

I read about this hypothesis before any supercomputer was employed, and the article doesn't talk about any of the "W" questions concerning the algorithm. So while I agree that the hypothesis explains a lot, the supercomputer headline seems to be superfluous.

I previously posted this in the good news thread. As time goes by more is learned and hopefully this leads to some new breakthroughs in understanding and treatment options.

Well see, if a *super-super* computer did it, it means it's .... well, you can super-duper trust it! Or something like that LOL

I don't know what the "cytokines" were and now there's the "bradykinin" to worry about too. I didn't even know either existed before this nightmare. And I still don't know what they are. Plagues and fires. Sweet.
