Research Reveals Why Some People Never Get Infected With COVID-19!
The Pandemic has killed millions of people around the world. The virus has damaged not only the physical but also the mental health. However, there are still many people who have not been able to get this disease. Many people have not been infected even after repeated exposure to COVID patients.
A Washington Post report published in May of this year published a research paper on why those people have never been infected with covid. According to the report, those who are safe from coronavirus can provide much more insight into the disease than those who are infected and recover. An international study is being conducted to find out the genetic material that prevents coronavirus infection.
Andreas Span, a clinical microbiologist, and researcher at Rockefeller University in New York are leading the study. The study tested the antibodies of more than 5,000 people. The study participants were never infected with Covid. A nurse anesthetist named Bevin Strickland participated in the study. He said he had to stay among the patients all the time. Not that he wore a mask all the time. Yet to this day Covid has not caught him.
Jennifer Nujo, a professor of epidemiology at Brown University’s School of Public Health, told the Washington Post that those who have never had Covid will have their genes tested to see how the virus spreads to humans. However, past research has found that some genetic variations make people immune to infectious diseases such as HIV, tuberculosis, and the flu.
