Surely you’ve wanted to hear some good news about COVID after so many talking about new waves and strains. Also, surely you’ve also been wondering, like many of us, why on Earth some people don’t get infected with COVID although they’re widely exposed to human interaction and crowds. Surely you’re wondering why some of those who sell in grocery stores or taxi drivers don’t get infected.
New studies that NPR.org writes about could shed some light on the mystery of why some people are completely avoided by COVID although they’re very exposed. The studies claim that some people are likely gifted with superhuman immunity for the coronavirus.
Superhuman immunity, hybrid immunity, you name it!
The trait of being resistant to COVID infection can have different monikers. You can either call it superhuman immunity or hybrid immunity.
What happens is that the bodies of some people are able to produce incredibly high levels of antibodies and also antibodies in general with great ease. Such capability is granting them the chance to fight off the different variants of COVID that are spreading across the world. These individuals are also likely to be resistant against other coronavirus variants that may emerge in the future.
Paul Bieniasz, a virologist from the Rockefeller University who was involved in some of the studies, declared as quoted by NPR.org:
One could reasonably predict that these people will be quite well-protected against most — and perhaps all of — the SARS-CoV-2 variants that we are likely to see in the foreseeable future.
As officials firmly believe that getting vaccinated for the coronavirus is crucial, the vaccination rates in some parts of the world have crashed. A lot of people choose to remain skeptical when it comes to getting vaccinated for COVID.
