Can a respiratory #virus infection confer #immunity against the other #respiratory virus? A much-debated issue in the virus immunology for many decades. What is the probable immune mechanism & does it indeed exist? What is the evidence for & against this hypothesis? 1/
It is hypothesized that a respiratory virus infection confers immunity against the same and other respiratory viruses for a short time, perhaps a few weeks. This immunologic mechanism, known as #heterosubtypic ‘temporary non-specific immunity’ 2/
This immune protection is associated with activation of the innate immune response to viral infection mediated by the release of Type I #interferons (IFN) & other cytokines that have broad protective effects against a range of viruses 3/

#COVID #Immunity #Vaccination #AntibodyTitres are not necessarily an indicator of COVID immunity. A lot of people are posting messages worried about not demonstrating antibodies post-vaccination. This is a myth that needs to be addressed. Follow this thread......
There are various types of antibody tests, directed against specific components of the virus. Just bcoz antibody to 1 component is absent, doesn't imply lack of the immunity, coz we may have other COVID neutralising antibodies we haven't been tested for!
+ there is something called cell-mediated immunity which doesn’t show up in antibody tests. Moreover, antibodies may be present, in memory cells in the bone marrow and not in the circulating blood. They may only be recruited to fight when exposed to the virus!

🔥Federal prosecutors are investigating whether Matt Gaetz *obstructed justice* during a phone call he had with a witness in the child #SexTrafficking case being built against him.

#ObstructionOfJustice is punishable by up to 20 years in the slammer.😎

The obstruction probe stems from a phone call the witness had w/Gaetz’s ex-girlfriend (fmr Capitol Hill intern), who patched Gaetz into the call—Gaetz’s ex-girlfriend & the witness are friends with the trafficked girl.

The witness spoke with prosecutors😎…
Gaetz’s ex-girlfriend, who was on the call in question, is seeking an #immunity deal from prosecutors and has expressed fears that she may have obstructed justice. She told friends that she feared the alleged trafficking victim may have recorded her in another phone call.🧐

1/5 Been over a year & I'm STILL curious re trypsin inhibitors v. #COVID19. Why:
a. Japan "anomaly". Soy is part of the local diet.
b. Turns out that soybean Kunitz trypsin inhibitors (SKTIs) also inhibit elastase & others
c. Trypsin-fibrinogen
d. SKTIs inhibit prothrombin
e. ⬇️
2/5⬆️ Was asking around a year ago, haven't got a single reply yet. Maybe it was obvious it was a bad idea, but not for me. Well, I'm tagging u guys, so don't hesitate to DM me & call me an idiot. 🤗

3/5⬆️ I believe this might be connected to:
1. Lung damage (elastase)
2. Blood clotting (trypsin=> prothrombin)
3. Spike configuration (trypsin, other proteases)
4. Better cell entry (trypsin)
4. Gastrointestinal symptoms (trypsin)

Ultimate victims of media induced fear & politically correct #posturing will be our #children. "hygiene hypothesis: "when exposure to parasites, bacteria, & #viruses is limited early in life, children face a greater chance of [] allergies, asthma, & other #autoimmune diseases..." Image
Dec 10, 2020, Nature: "'#Children are very much adapted to respond — & very well equipped to respond — to new #viruses,' [] even when they are infected w/ #SARSCoV2, children are most likely to experience #mild or #asymptomatic illness." Image
"These children’s #immune systems see the #virus & mounts this really quick & effective immune response that shuts it down, before it has a chance to replicate to the point that it comes up positive on the swab diagnostic test",

Fact check: Drinking tea cannot prevent #COVID19

While researchers have been studying the benefits of #greentea, Dr Vikas Maurya, director pulmonology, Fortis Hospital, New Delhi said,"Please don’t be under the misconception that if you have tea you are in any way safeguarded or protected against Covid; there is no guarantee.”
The only way to prevent contracting #COVID19 is by taking adequate precautions like wearing masks, sanitising hands and maintaining social distance, and ensuring that you get vaccinated as soon as possible, the doctor said…

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests a wait for 90 days from the day one tests positive for #COVID19 if he/she has not received the vaccine. Image
Leading vaccine scientist Dr #GagandeepKang said data from the UK shows there is 80% protection following a natural infection with the #SARSCoV2 virus. It is fine to even wait up to six months, she said.

#ExpressExplained : Image
The second dose can be given eight weeks after the person tests positive for #COVID19 infection, according to Dr V Ravi, nodal officer for genetic confirmation of #SARSCoV2, Karnataka. The body starts producing antibodies after the infection and it is akin to getting a #vaccine. Image

When we talk of Immunity we mean that our body has the resistance to fight or is impervious to a external threat. In the biological context it means we can fight of an organism.1/n
@docphiloshoper @HaryaxPathak @pankti4299 @rud_ras @sarkarrahul
The organism that we currently are interested in is the #SARS_CoV_2 virus 🦠 and it’s variants. Anything that helps us boost our immune system for that is a #ImmunityBooster 2/n

#Immunity from SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccination verses infection are distinctly different. C19 patients had augmented interferon responses & effector T/ B cells, while vaccine recipients had high circulating memory T & B cells without interferon response [].
(2) Viruses modulate host genomes to enhance their own survival and replication. This has been going on for billions of years where both DNA and RNA viruses can capitalize on epitranscriptomic modifications to maximize viral gene expression [].
(3) Viruses have shaped and built the genomes of organisms to survive for billions of years. []. In human history, viruses like EBV is known to reprogram host metabolism/gene expression to proliferate and increase pathogenicity []

1/ Do I need the vaccine if I’ve already been infected w/ COVID-19? Isn’t natural immunity better?

A: COVID-19 vaccines produce STRONGER & MORE CONSISTENT antibody responses than natural infection, meaning EVERYONE can benefit from the protection.

💥Don’t give away your shot!
2/ As more people become eligible for the COVID-19, we’ve heard some people who’ve already been infected, especially younger people, doubting whether they need the vaccine.
3/ We now have good evidence that vaccines produce HIGHER antibody levels on average against SARS-CoV-2 than natural infection, & people vaccinated after previous infection get a BIG boost.

This thread will try something different.
Instead of me offering links to papers, i will ask questions (and i will try to respond to any questions with links to papers)

No one has to answer if no one wants to

Questions (in no particular order)

Q1 Why do we tolerate lockdowns?
Q1 con’t

Is society too polite to unanimously oppose lockdowns?
Are those in favour of them TRULY in favour? Do they enjoy them?
Or are they missing some facts,
and if given these facts, would they oppose lockdowns?
If yes, what facts are missing?
Can a public debate be held?
Q1 con’t

Science can address the fear

One of earliest articles that reduced my fear was this one 16/3/20

It showed that with functioning immune system, one survives
