Happy hypoxia is a state where body’s oxygen concentration gets lower (to about 60%) in a patient infected with C-19 virus but not so low that patients feel uncomfortable.

They can behave normally till they deteriorate rapidly and collapse. The rapid deterioration and collapse has been one of the reasons C-19 has emerged as a major killer.

After attending to over 2,000 patients and witnessing 160 deaths, the state’s experts have prepared a dossier of sorts on the virus and its ‘novel’ manifestations and attacks.

It is by now well accepted that 85% to 90% of corona patients have mild to non-existent symptoms (fever, cough or breathlessness).

The public health department is worried not only because the virus is new and little is known about it, but the case fatality rate here is highest in the country at 6.85%.

The dossier is an effort to list all the novel symptoms. If the virus behaves benignly in 85-90% patients, it’s tricky in the rest.

The change in their health parameters could be rapid- what expets describe as ‘Happy hypoxia‘.
