“Every single one” My patient works at a homeless shelter in Brooklyn. Tearfully she told me every resident there got COVID in April. Every single one. More than 20 died. No one had a funeral. No one called. No media reported about it. Think about that. They just disappeared.

Interesting study, needs replication though. This group has published many findings that have not been replicated elsewhere. Personalized approach to BP meds, rather than all in AM or all in PM is probably best. via
