Coronavirus causing the COVID-19 pandemic can attack immune cells that protect our bodies from viruses and harmful bacteria. This warning of scientists raises concern among people. If SARS-CoV-2 viruses can attack the immune system, it will be as deadly as HIV. Check out this news here with

Coronavirus Attack The Immune System

The scientists from Shanghai and New York found that the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, attack and destroy humans’ immune system. It’s also the findings of many doctors who directly treat COVID-19 patients. This deadly virus destroys our immune cells in the same way with HIV, a deadly virus that kills people by damaging their immune system.

Lulu, a researcher from Fudan University in Shanghai and Jang Shibon working in the New York Faculty of Hematology studied the way the SARS-CoV-2 virus causes illness. They tested this virus on Lympho T cells created in the laboratory. Lymph T cells play a key role in detecting and eliminating the virus from the outer environment. These cells will capture the infected cells and destroy both the infected cells and viruses.

Unlike other viruses, coronavirus doesn’t attack normal cells. It attacks directly to Lympho T cells and damages these immune cells. It weakens our immune system and makes us vulnerable to other diseases. They also tested the working mechanism of the SARS virus and found that this virus doesn’t attack our immune system. It means that the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is more deadly and dangerous than the previous variety. 

Therefore, people should not underestimate this virus. It is more fatal and difficult to eliminate. Coronavirus can damage our immune system and cause fatality like HIV. Moreover, it also causes severe damage to our lungs.

The elderly and people with chronic diseases must take precautions and protect themselves from this virus because they have a higher risk of infection and suffer from more severe symptoms. Those people also have a higher risk of fatality because their immune system is weaker.
