  1. Very interested as Daughter had SCA 2018 and January week one 2020 hospital admission with chest /breathing issues – she is an asthmatic but said this was not asthma attack- blood test pathology could not determine virus- suspicions coul be early pre evolved coronavirus strain ? Very disturbingly has had heart spasms/pain virtually daily since – other health issues present that complicate situation
