Washington PostIt was reported on the 8th that researchers around the world are trying to understand who can avoid contracting the new coronavirus during the pandemic of the past two years, hoping to find better preventive measures and more effective treatments .
Those lucky enough to survive the virus are an “extremely rare group” as the number of average daily cases in the United States reached a record peak of more than 800,000 last winter, due to the highly permeable version of Omicron, the report said. A recent analysis by the CDC estimated that nearly 60 percent of Americans had contracted COVID-19 by February.
UKA report by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) as of mid-April also showed that “9 out of 10 people in the UK have been infected with the new Crown virus at least once, and one in 10 of the country’s population.” There is only 1. Has never been diagnosed.” The chosen one may have a rare genetic variant that protects them from infection.
Andrus Spahn, a clinical microbiologist at Rockefeller University in New York, who is looking into the reasons why people are immune to the new crown, and hopes to develop more effective prevention and treatment measures. “What we’re seeing is potentially very rare genetic mutations that have a huge impact on the individual,” he told the Washington Post. The multinational research, led by Spahn, recruited more than 700 subjects, and is also examining more than 5,000 other subjects who think they may be immune to the virus. ,
Researchers have put forward several hypotheses as to why some people may be immune to the new coronavirus, including that “some people have fewer receptors in their nose, throat, and lungs themselves that bind to the virus, making it harder for the virus to enter.” “Some people have been exposed to the virus before. Virus-like environment to make antibodies” or “innate genetics makes them more suited to fight the new coronavirus”.
But thanks for the masks, vaccines andsocial distancingSuch epidemic prevention measures can significantly reduce transmission, and the above factors may cause deviations in relevant research results.
