Coronavirus Pandemic Update 55: How COVID-19 Infection Attacks The Immune System & Differs From HIV

COVID-19 Update 55 with Roger Seheult, MD of https://www.MedCram.com

Dr. Seheult illustrates new findings from Nature (a peer-reviewed journal) about how the SARS-CoV-2 virus may infect T-cells and render them ineffective during COVID 19 infection. A comparison is also made to how HIV infects T-cells with a key difference being that HIV actually utilizes T-cells of the human immune system to replicate itself (and this has not been observed with SARS-CoV-2. Other topics include a medical review by the Mayo Clinic about potential benefits of sauna/hydrothermal therapy (brief core temperature elevation), and a new “vent multiplexer” that allows some individual adjustment when treating multiple patients with one ventilator.
