Intensive care physicians said that young people are prone to sudden death from the epidemic, which may be related to factors such as the British variant virus, cardiomyopathy, and genetic defects.

The number of domestic deaths from Wuhan pneumonia has repeatedly hit new highs, and it has recently appeared30Many years old and40For many-year-old death cases, the age seems to be gradually decreasing. Huang Xuan, a thoracic and intensive care specialist, said,50Young people under the age of and without chronic diseases are prone to sudden death, which may be related to the virus overload of the British variant. Other causes include cardiomyopathy and “happy hypoxia” (Happy Hypoxia), Genetic defects, etc.
“Doctor Huang Xuan Dr. Ooi Hean“According to Facebook, in the United States and Brazil, the hospitalization rate and death rate of young people have begun to surpass that of the elderly. Experts have found in-depth research that the British variant virus has increased40-70%Transmission rate, and it is easy to carry a high amount of virus in the body, there is no difference in age, so even if it is50Young people under the age of the disease can easily develop severe illnesses after being infected.
In addition, there is sudden cardiac death caused by immune storm. In addition to the well-known acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS),Have33Cardiomyopathy will occur in% of patients, which will cause the heart’s working capacity to decline. The new coronavirus can easily stimulate the body’s immune system to “defense too well”, forming an immune storm and impairing the function of the cardiovascular system.
Dr. Huang Xuan also mentioned that happiness, hypoxia and genetic defects may also cause sudden death. When the patient is happy and hypoxic, although the appearance looks okay, the blood oxygen concentration is actually too low, which can endanger his life at any time.Also, a Dutch study found that some young peopleXchromosomeTLR7After being infected with Wuhan pneumonia, it is easy to cause severe sepsis, leading to sudden death of the patient.
The British variant virus has increased the transmission rate by 40-70%, and it is easy to carry a high amount of virus in the body, and there is no difference in age.
The new crown virus easily stimulates the human immune system to “defense too well”, forming an immune storm, and impeding the function of the cardiovascular system
In the case of happy hypoxia, although the appearance looks okay, in fact the blood oxygen concentration is already too low, which will endanger life at any time
