No evidence of SARS-CoV-2 transfusion transmission despite RNA detection in blood donors showing symptoms after donation

Abstract : The diagnosis of chronic mountain sickness (CMS) is based on a score including 7 clinical features (breathlessness, sleep disturbance, cyanosis, venous dilatation, paresthesia, headache, and tinnitus) in the setting of extreme erythrocytosis. Examining individuals in La Rinconada, Peru, the highest city in the world, the authors demonstrated that CMS at extreme altitude is not linked to elevation of hemoglobin, since CMS+ and CMS− individuals had similar levels of erythrocytosis.
