Test and treat Covid-19 patients suffering blood-clotting issues

The NHS should institute blood-clotting (coagulation) tests for coronavirus patients admitted to NHS hospitals, to monitor intensively whether patients’ blood clotting response has been seriously harmed by the coronavirus disease and by how much and whether this requires specific targeted treatment to normalise the patient’s blood clotting response? For those patients whose blood clotting response is found to be abnormal, either generally or in specific organs, such as lungs, kidneys and heart, affecting organ function, treat with appropriate blood-clot busting drugs, such as Tissue Plasminogen Activator (tPA). https://peterdow.wordpress.com/2020/04/10/coronavirus-new-treatments-trials-and-nhs-best-practice-in-scotland/
