Scientists from the University of San Francisco have learned about an unexpected reaction of the body to the coronavirus, which interferes with the treatment of the infection. This is reported by MedicalXpress.
The immune response to coronavirus entering the body is so strong that it interferes with the action of medications. This reaction is very different from the immune response to the flu.
The study also says that for coronavirus, it is the easiest way to enter cells through the respiratory system, but it easily affects the tissues and cells of other organs.
Earlier, Dr. Emily Holmes from Sweden's Uppsala University warned that the coronavirus pandemic has an impact on people's mental health. According to the medic, the elderly and children are particularly susceptible to mental effects in the context of a pandemic вЂ” and since the body and mind are linked, doctors need to work on new forms of treatment that take this fact into account.
