It seems that there’s an unexpected element that might offer people some protection against covid 19. Check out the latest reports below in order to learn what’s this all about.

New protection against covid 19

BBC revealed that there is a small-scale study, published in Nature Communications, which involved 52 individuals who lived with someone who had just caught Covid-19. The results of this study are remarkable. 

“Those who had developed a “memory bank” of specific immune cells after a cold – to help prevent future attacks – appeared less likely to get Covid.”

The same article notes that experts say no-one should rely on this defense alone, and vaccines remain key.

It’s also important to mention the fact that on the other hand, they believe their findings could provide useful insight into how a body’s defense system fights the virus.

The same article also notes the fact that experts focused their study on a crucial part of the body’ s immune system – T-cells.

Some of these T-cells kill any cells infected by a specific threat – for example, a cold virus.

“And, once the cold has gone, some T-cells remain in the body as a memory bank, ready to mount a defence when they next encounter the virus.”

Dr Simon Clarke, at the University of Reading, said although this was a relatively small study, it added to the understanding of how our immune system fights the virus and could help with future vaccines.

FDA and Pfizer scandal

The other day, we revealed that there’s been a massive scandal involving the fact that the FDA asked for 75 years to produce Pfizer vaccine safety data. Now, it seems that things are changing and you should check out the latest reports on the issue below.

It’s been just reported that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will have eight months — not the 75 years it requested — to release all documents related to the licensing of Pfizer’s Comirnaty covid vaccine. This is what a federal judge ruled Thursday.
