I know the last thing we needed was another Covid thread, but I thought this was important enough to post for new folks to read. The information here was previously just a theory but a new study indicates the possibility.




Evidence indicates Covid-19 slams your immune system, HIV properties.

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41...Ti6iOtpSDFd8RpqMc6l4hHooP9tDKyiSjP9MaHJw

Essentially this means folks with weakened immune systems via drugs or by health, will be very susceptible. Makes it very easy to pick up other infections while dealing with covid, and during recovery. This validates and explains why covid is so hard older people and those with underlying conditions.



So it goes without saying, and illustrates why the best defense against this virus is a strong immune system. Bolster your immune system as best you can. Vitamins, zinc, etc.. stop doing things that hurt your immunity.



The good news, unlike HIV, this is temporary, but takes time as your body rebuilds it's immune system..


*The study has weak data, but seems to support this conclusion. Some disagree with the initial outcome and suggest it simply shows the normal response from our immune system*. More data is needed.


Also on an encouraging note:

Jacob Glanville (of Netflix 'Pandemic' fame) says he has developed an antibody for the virus. It is currently being tested by the US Military. He says it works, and lasts 8-10 weeks, can be given before and after getting infected. Starts to work in 20 minutes. Administered via IV.

Should be ready by August for mainstream distribution. Any sooner would take an unprecedented act by the federal gov.

Yeah - the Spanish Flu did something similar. It was called a "cytokine storm".

This is different. It has similar mechanism to HIV. It attacks the luekocytes and t-cells, your first and second line of defense. The t-cell is the most worrisome as we have less the older we get

This might explain why whites, statistically, have a better time dealing with the BatFlu than other races.

An interesting genetic quirk is that those who descended from those who survived through the Black Death of the Middle Ages are resistant to HIV. Resistant, mind you. It's been long enough to where the Delta-32 mutation is suppressed in the gene pool.

The exception to the rule is this one fellow in the UK who is actually immune to HIV based on the magic combination of genes from his Black Death surviving family tree.
