So, if the coronavirus can attack T-lymphocytes – cells of the immune system involved in the formation of antibodies, then such a mutation will turn out to be the most dangerous. The fact is that a person cannot be cured of such a disease.
“The most dangerous mutation of coronavirus, from my point of view, as an immunologist, will be if it crosses with HIV. This is also an RNA virus. And suddenly it turns out that he is attacking T-lymphocytes. These are the key cells of the immune system ”– said the doctor, noting that if COVID-19 begins to attack T-lymphocytes, then we can say that he will learn to turn off the immune system.
Note that this mutation has not happened to date.
