Children have an alkaline pH and the elderly have an acidic pH
coronavirus mainly attacks people with an acidic pH.
the problem is that the virus gets caught by iron ions releasing the iron oxygen that leads to thrombosis .In the case of blood with a more alkaline ph this is cumbersome . The blood of people with covid-19 has a huge iron content on which the virus attaches. It is necessary to administer an anticoagulant in the case of severely affected persons

Under age 18 are not "missing". Through actual testing, my state health department reports that 144 cases to date. (population of state about 3M) 78 age 11-18, 29 age 6-10, 29 age 1-5, and 8 cases under a year old. Only 3 of 144 required hospitalization and no recorded deaths under age 18.

In the news yesterday , a 5-year-old died from Covid-19 in Detroit. Father was paramedic and mother police officer so both first responders. But lung issues was not what caused her death. She had very rare complication, coronavirus meningitis. She was on respirator for two weeks before death. https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/21/us/detroit-girl-dies-coronavirus/index.html

A baby almost 5 months ago died yesterday in NYC from complications of Covid-19. Her father was NYC firefighter.

No Gag order. My state has website with lots of data updated daily. Number tested, number positive, number hospitalized, deaths by county, gender and age.

Now that home testing is being done there is no way to track or trace.
