Medical research scientists pointing to an HIV-like trait, say the COVID-19 coronavirus effectively attacks and destroys the very immune cells that are supposed to protect the body.
The scientists found COVID-19’s attacking the T cells was unlike the past SARS coronavirus, completely destroying the immune system in fatal cases, per the report.
And, in some patients, the virus that has overtaken the T cells turns the immune system on healthy cells in the body, too, in what is called “cytokine storms“ according to the report.
The study also suggests this COVID-19 infection might have gone unreported around the world for a long time.
Have a healthy day, stay home, Keep the Faith!
