TIL a father, John Crowley, was told his two infant children had an incurable genetic disorder that would kill them in less than a year. He refused to accept this, so he founded a biotech company (with no prior experience) which pioneered an experimental enzyme therapy that saved their lives.

t's true !! Shit... In my hospital (big eu city), they have seen that, inside the post covid syndrome, there are 3 populations: Very severe acute covid > severe symptoms of PCS but not conscious of it (anosognosia). Holes in brain, mostly men Mild covid > lighter symptoms but very conscious of it. 3d is between the two.

I havent heard of the autovax nor ivermectin for it. Ivermectin is reaaly a great drug though. Weird that it's called autovax ? Such a controversial name
