Scientists have proposed to infect people with another type of coronavirus

Scientists have made an incredible claim. They believe that it is possible to reduce to a minimum mortality from coronavirus directly with the help of this disease itself.

The researchers suggested that if you infect people with a different kind of coronavirus, which can only provoke a “cold”, it will reduce the risk of complications arising from COVID-19. Scientists have conducted a study that showed that the presence of immunity obtained from a variety of coronavirus infections cannot protect against COVID-19.

SARS-CoV-2 is one of the new pathogens, but at the same time, scientists know a huge number of other types of coronavirus that can provoke in humans only a “mild cold” and a maximum of pneumonia. These types share some characteristics with SARS-CoV-2. At the same time, the memory of immunity will make it easier to transfer a new type of coronavirus in case of infection.

Joseph Mizgerd stated that over time, many people have been infected with different types of coronavirus, which are very different from SARS-CoV-2. These people are much less likely to develop serious complications.

It is worth noting that some time ago, experts made another interesting assumption. They suggest infecting certain groups of people with a less dangerous type of coronavirus, which causes exclusively colds, in order to minimize mortality and the occurrence of serious and life-threatening complications. How true this assumption is at the moment is unknown. Perhaps, in the near future, more detailed studies will be carried out, which will lead to a more accurate result.
