Neuroscientist believes 80% of people may have innate immunity to coronavirus

The strategies that the governments of different countries have chosen may not affect the further development of the coronavirus pandemic.

British neuroscientist Carl Friston is confident that approximately 80% of all humanity may have innate immunity against coronavirus. The researcher added that people in some countries do not perceive the virus as strongly as in some others.

Carl Friston is engaged in the creation of mathematical models that show the functioning of the human brain. At the moment, the professor uses all these models in order to understand exactly how the spread of the coronavirus occurs.

“Why were the death rates in the UK and Sweden about the same if the government chose different strategies to combat the disease? One theory is that the population behaved in much the same way. As a result, social distance depends on how people behave in a given country, ”says Professor Friston.

The specialist also added that those countries that behave the same should have similar mortality rates. In this case, he was comparing Germany and Great Britain. Despite the fact that the actions were similar, the death rate in England is much higher than in Germany. The professor concluded that the methods chosen by the government do not play a special role in the spread of the coronavirus.

In the future, the scientist plans to conduct a number of studies and he is almost completely sure that it will turn out that most of the world’s population has an innate immunity to coronavirus.
