You should feel frustrated about being cheated and terrorized. Many news about COVID-19 should relieve your stress and make you more confident to participate in community activities in a normal way, so it was suppressed. You also need to know other information to understand what it means to test for COVID-19, why the proven “infection” is misleading, and how to carefully design our immune system to resist in a way that we are beginning to understand virus.
The first clue came from the Swiss biologist, professor emeritus, and former director of the Institute of Immunology at the University of Bern, Dr. Beda M. Stadler. In June, he wrote an article World week Although his assessment may be optimistic to compare the virus to the severe cold that fades in summer, some basic facts about the immune system and testing are obvious. This article has been translated into English on Medium (subscription required for the original text):
First, it is wrong to claim that this virus is novel. Second, it is even wrong to claim that the population has no immunity against the virus. Third, claiming that someone may have no symptoms of Covid-19 at all, or even spread the disease without any symptoms, is crowning foolishness.
Recently, Dr. Simone Gold of Frontline Doctors in the United States and others agreed. COVID-19 is 78% similar to SARS, and uses the same process as SARS to enter the respiratory tract cells. The spike of the protein binds to the ACE-2 receptor to open the door. This information alone should provide a basis for public policy and treatment.
Stadler’s second point has just been confirmed by researchers at the La Jolla Institute of Immunology in a peer-reviewed study published in 2011. science magazine, Publication of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. “Science Daily” made an excellent summary from a layman’s point of view. You can read the full text, but the most important thing is:
A new study shows that memory helper T cells that recognize the common cold coronavirus also recognize matching sites on SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19).
The “memory” T cells of the immune system track viruses that have been seen before. This memory of immune cells puts cells in a leading position in recognizing and resisting repeated invaders.
This research is based on previously completed work, which proves:
This new work builds on the Cell paper recently published by Sette’s laboratory and LJI Professor Shane Crotty’s laboratory. The paper shows that 40% to 60% of people who have never been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 will have T cells. With viruses. Their immune systems recognize fragments of the virus that they have never seen before. The discovery turned out to be a global phenomenon, and people in the Netherlands, Germany, Britain and Singapore have reported on it.
Although they say more research is needed, this may explain some of the patterns we see in COVID-19. Healthy individuals without disease may suffer from varying degrees of disease, but then recover. Children and people under 50 seem to do particularly well. This model may be because as long as they remain active and interact in the world, their immune system will contact weakly virulent pathogens and trigger an immune response, thereby maintaining a strong immunity.
Science supports the use of hydroxychloroquine in COVID-19, so why should doctors be reviewed?
The memory T cells of healthy people record pathogens and respond when similar pathogens are found. This immune response is why young parents usually do not suffer pain when their children are sick. Children may be infected with upper respiratory tract disease (a bacterial petri dish) after going to daycare, while parents may only suffer from a mild itchy throat. The parent’s body has been exposed to similar bugs before, and memory T cells help eliminate it before the disease worsens.
Human coronavirus is one of the main causes of the common cold. Therefore, many healthy people will remember T cells for them, which makes sense. Current research confirms that they can also attack COVID-19. In this video, Dr. Dan Erickson explains well how the immune system works and how the locking mechanism impairs its function:
[WATCH] California doctor said lockdown and non-blockade did not cause statistically different deaths
Dr. Stadler also dispels the myth of asymptomatic transmission (For clarity and emphasis).
The next joke shared by some virologists is to claim that those without symptoms can still transmit the virus to others. The throat of a “healthy” patient is filled with such a large amount of virus that a normal conversation between two people is enough to cause a “healthy” person to infect another healthy person. At this point, we must analyze what is happening here: if the virus is growing anywhere in the body (including the throat), it means that human cells will die. (). When [human] Cell death (), Immediately remind the immune system and cause infection. One of the five main symptoms of infection is pain. Understandably, those suffering from Covid-19 May not remember the initial hoarse voice Then continue to claim that they had no symptoms a few days ago. However, for doctors and virologists, this is a story of “healthy” patients, which caused panic and is often cited as the reason for stricter lockdown measures. This just illustrates the truth of this joke. How bad sex is. At least the World Health Organization does not accept the claim of asymptomatic infection, and even questions this claim on its website.
There is no reason to believe that the immune system of a healthy individual will not respond to COVID-19 like any other disease. Those who are vulnerable, obese or suffering from other previous diseases may be suffering from a cytokine storm, but this is an overreaction of the immune system. Dr. Stadler only described a healthy immune response.
Dexamethasone used for severe COVID-19 has life-saving effects
Finally, Dr. Stadler discussed one of the standard tests for COVID-19, the PCR test. The test is not specific to live infectious viruses. It actually detected the virus fragment, which may still exist for a while after the patient recovers (For clarity and emphasis):
Therefore, if we perform PCR corona test on people with strong immunity, the virus will not be detected, but a small fragment of the virus genome. As long as the remaining tiny fragments of the virus, the test will return positive. Correct: Even if the infectious virus has been dead for a long time, the corona test can be positive because the PCR method can double a small part of the virus’s genetic material [to be detected].
That’s it. When there is global news, even shared with the World Health Organization, 200 Koreans who have passed Covid-19 have been infected again, so they may not have immunity against the virus. The actual situation and the explanation of the apology did not appear until later. At that time, it was clear that the immunized Koreans were very healthy and had a short time to fight the virus. The crux of the problem is that the virus fragments are registered in an overly sensitive test, and therefore appear as “positive” again. The large number of infection cases reported every day may be caused entirely by virus fragments.
Is PCR testing useful for symptomatic patients? absolute. The CDC is even developing a combination test that will distinguish between influenza A, influenza B and COVID-19 to diagnose patients with influenza-like illness. But if you understand how the test works and the function of the immune system, is it logical to ask “Why do we test healthy people?” Maybe continue the idea of a healthy spreader?
Even better, what is the value of retesting? If your streptococcal pharyngitis, urinary tract infection or flu tests positive, will you go back and make sure your second checkup is good? This retest will only be performed under abnormal conditions if you have a weakened immune system, drug-resistant strains or other medical conditions.
But in healthy people, this will not happen. Employers and schools requesting retests are a problem because the positive results of virus fragments detected in recovered patients have not been separated from new infections. If the symptoms disappear, like the flu, you have recovered.
So why all the vagueness and suggestiveness? Because if you are not misled and afraid, you will not follow orders that violate civil liberties, will not let your children go home from school, and will usually feel pain. Our Health Experts™ will also not be able to say such things on TV:
Gupta: “We are not 5% of the world’s population, but we represent 20-25% of the world’s infections… I mean, that must be the worst. Isn’t it the worst?”
FAUCI: “Yes, yes. I mean. In terms of numbers, yes. I mean, these numbers don’t lie.”
-Ryan Struyk (@ryanstruyk) August 5, 2020
In fact, numbers do exist. Or at least misleading and intended to cause panic on some basic level. In states such as Georgia, Florida, Texas, and Arizona, the experience with this virus supports the argument that the required herd immunity threshold may be much lower than the initial estimate of 70%-90%. If a large number of people have memory T cells that are effective against the virus, the ban on the mask of healthy people, blockade and prohibition of large gatherings will not be so easy to enforce. According to research, especially when T cell immunity is as high as 60%. Assuming another 20-30% of the population is infected during the peak period, the whole situation will change.
Why Georgia might blow locked memes out of the water
Another reason for persistent panic is that it increases the likelihood that you will be willing to be vaccinated. Two studies have confirmed that unexposed T cell immunity, healthy individuals, without existing diseases or other risk factors, may not need to take it. This also increases the likelihood that those who contract and restore it will have the same T cell immunity. How quickly the antibody disappears is a point of contention. Dr. Anthony Fauci really wants you to be vaccinated.
The amount of information concealed from the public is both obscene and terrifying. Americans have many reasons to be optimistic about the experience of COVID-19 and our ability to formulate sound public policies to deal with it. These policies should protect vulnerable groups and allow other parts of the country to lead normal lives.
