The Plus website reported that there appears to be a link with "COVID, HIV, and Cytokine 'Storms'":
The difference between a mild, sometimes unnoticeable, case of COVID-19 and a deadly one may be an overactive immune system. Earlier this year, The Lancet published an editorial calling on frontline workers to consider that cytokine storm syndromes and immunosuppression could be at play in the more severe COVID-19 cases.
A cytokine storm occurs when the immune system releases too many
cytokines into the blood too quickly. According to the National Cancer
Institute, cytokines play an important role in normal immune responses,
but too many can create inflammation that becomes harmful or even
... Potential treatments, which may attempt to suppress the immune system response to avoid its overreaction, also run the risk of opening someone up to opportunistic infections, which could be just as deadly, so The Lancet urges caution in this approach.
Cytokine storms can also occur in those with untreated HIV. A 2020 study in the journal BMC Medicine noted a connection between cytokines, immune cell dynamics, and the capacity for the HIV virus to replicate in those with hyper-acute HIV. Those who had the cytokine storms also had the more intense HIV, so researchers concluded “viral virulence” had a role in driving the out-of-control inflammatory response.
Echoing previous studies indicating early treatment has long-term benefits, the researchers also learned that while starting antiretroviral treatment did calm the cytokine storm, it did not reverse HIV-induced immune changes. In other words, getting on treatment early and staying on it can help prevent you from facing long-term medical issues.
The investigational HIV medication leronlimab (PRO 140) is still a year way from approval to treat HIV. But since it blocks cytokines it has been granted rushed approval for clinical trials (and use in New York hospitals) to see if it can fight COVID-19’s deadly symptoms.
That both COVID-19 and HIV can cause similar runaway immune systems that turn on one’s own body, obviously raises the question of whether people living with HIV are at higher risk for contracting COVID-19 or are more likely to experience severe illnesses from the novel coronavirus. After all, a drug to treat HIV has been most useful in treating COVID-19. [https://www.hivplusmag.com/print-issue/2020/8/20/truth-about-covid-hiv-and-cytokine-storms]
Ivan, one of the great Catholic Monitor commenters, informed us that the
renowned French "Prof. Luc Montegnier" thinks there is a link
between the HIV virus and the COVID-19 virus:
"You should hear the interview with Prof. Luc Montegnier nobel prize winner about intentionally putting HIV virus in COVID-19."
"If you speak French. Otherwise try to get it translated:
Wikipedia says Luc Antoine Montagnier "is a French virologist" and "2008 Nobel Prize" winner:
"Luc Antoine Montagnier (US: /ˌmɒntənˈjeɪ, ˌmoʊntɑːnˈjeɪ/; US: /mənˈ-/, French: [mɔ̃taɲe]; born 18 August 1932) is a French virologist and joint recipient with Françoise Barré-Sinoussi and Harald zur Hausen of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his discovery of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). He has worked as a researcher at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, and as a full-time professor at Shanghai Jiao Tong University in China."
Ivan summarized that the YouTube video revealed:
"This is an alarming interview with the 2008 Nobel laureate in Medicine for his isolation and discovery of the HIV. He now asserts that there is clear evidence from genetic researchers that genetic strands of HIV (thus far inactive) are to be found in the COVID-19 among human patients which is known to have been first isolated in bats and that some unknown human agency is responsible for this “manipulation”. He also discusses the great pressure (“pression”) exerted to suppress fact-finding in this pandemic."
This is not the first time that HIV and the coronavirus has been linked:
It also appears that the birthplace of the new coronavirus shows there
might be a link between the HIV virus and the COVID-19 virus according
"Thousands of people like Zhang, living with HIV in Wuhan, and the surrounding province Hubei... there are about 20,000 people living with HIV or AIDS in Hubei province, local experts say."
(CNN, " People living with HIV in Wuhan struggle to find medicine during coronavirus outbreak," March 13,2020)
It seems that the "coronavirus in male homosexuals" who are obviously overwhelmingly more likely to have the HIV virus may be a factor in why Wuhan, New York and Bergamo in northern Italy were the epicenters of COVID-19:
Why might northern Italy and specifically the Italian city of Bergamo in northern Italy be the epicenter of the coronavirus in Europe?
Might the following have something to do with it?
Hachette Book Group says all the large cities of Italy have "a vibrant gay community, and even small cities Bergamo... have their own gay associations... Travel magazines regularly rate Italy as the top destination for gay travelers."
(HachetteBookGroup.com, Italy's Gay and Lesbian Culture)
Why is it that New York City is the epicenter of coronavirus in the United States and, also, happens to have the highest population of gays of all American cities according to Wikipedia?
Finally, might the COVID-19 virus, the HIV virus and the HIV/AIDS vaccine have anything to do with the totalitarian lockdowns in the United States?
Even the leftist Snopes admitted that "Montagnier truly made these statements his theory that COVID-19 was artificially created in an attempt to create an AIDS vaccine." [https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/luc-montagnier-covid-created-lab/]
Is it a coincidence that multi-billionaire Bill Gates is making a HIV/AIDS vaccine and two of his top HIV/AIDS vaccine collaborators Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx are the two top major players behind the totalitarian lockdowns in the United States?
Are these factors only coincidences?
Here is a May 10,2020 update from Ivan on this post:
"I forgot to mention that the second link to videointerview with Prof. Montagnier which I've posted in my comment above have an English subtitle."
"I suggest to everyone to watch and read it yourself. What a controlled defense of the truth of this well-deserved Nobel laureate. Exposing of the true facts provoke always aggression in the left wing."
"That is proven here again."
"And please, don't give credits to me. I only share what I got from my good Catholic friends who know much more and better than I do. All credits are for them, in this case particullary to my friend Sean from NYC."
"Here is the link (again) with the English subtitle:
"It is also important to say that prof. Montagnier not just thinks, but that he is certain about the genetic strands of HIV in COVID-19. And he is not only sure for a 100%, but he said that every a little bit scientist with a little bit a good equipment can easily get a proof of this, just as he has."
"This is very important to make it clear to everyone. There is thus a proof, a hard evidence for it. Not just an opinion." [https://www.thecatholicmonitor.com/2020/05/is-there-scientific-link-between-covid.html]
of the Church St. Francis de Sales totally confirmed beyond any doubt
the possibility of a heretical pope and what must be done by the Church
in such a situation:
"[T]he Pope... WHEN he is EXPLICITLY a heretic, he falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church, and the Church MUST either deprive him, or, as some say, declare him deprived, of his Apostolic See."
(The Catholic Controversy, by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)
Saint Robert Bellarmine, also, said "the Pope heretic is not deposed ipso facto, but must be declared deposed by the Church."

weight behind communion for adulterers," December 4, 2017:
The AAS guidelines explicitly allows "sexually active adulterous couples facing 'complex circumstances' to 'access the sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist.'"
- On February 2018, in Rorate Caeli, Catholic theologian Dr. John Lamont:
"The AAS statement... establishes that Pope Francis in Amoris Laetitia has affirmed propositions that are heretical in the strict sense."
- On December 2, 2017, Bishop Rene Gracida:
"Francis' heterodoxy is now official. He has published his letter to the Argentina bishops in Acta Apostlica Series making those letters magisterial documents."
Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church by the bishops by the grace of God.
