So it was thought the virus caused ARDS however i understand it may affect the blood.. Attaching itself to haemoglobin and preventing oxygenation. Sort of altitude sickness. Is this being studied? I guess it is. My source is homeopathic.

It feels very much like altitude sickness to me.

I may have had it and it did feel very similar to when I was up the top of the Jung Frau; unable to take a deep breath and my heart feeling like I’d climbed a steep flight of stairs when I was sitting down.
I recovered very quickly but it was quite unpleasant.

There's an interesting paper on this topic here: www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7096066/

And my Apple Watch said my resting heart rate was 70-75 when my normal one is 63-65
