Abstract

The pathophysiology of the coronavirus infection is not yet fully understood. Several theories have been developed from the acute respiratory distress syndrome to antiphospholipid antibody syndrome to vascular thrombosis. It is in this context that we propose through brainstorming some proposals for the therapeutic management based on secondary haemoglobin damage by COVID-19.
