Swiss immunologist says coronavirus is not a unique seasonal disease

Swiss immunologist Beda Stadler said that coronavirus is a common seasonal disease in the treatment of which doctors made many mistakes

His research published the portal of the American Academy of Medicine for extending life.

In the past, Stadler led the Institute of Immunology at the University of Bern. He conducts research in the field of allergology and autoimmunity, and is the author of applied research for the production of recombinant human or artificial antibodies and vaccines for therapy.

He is a proponent of vaccination and genetic engineering, does not support alternative medicine.

Regarding coronavirus, the scientist claims that those whom we call asymptomatic carriers are actually immune to COVID-19. His study said that there are no asymptomatic carriers of coronavirus. He compared the so-called asymptomatic carriers with children in whom the disease goes away in a very mild form.

“The next joke shared by some virologists was the assertion that those who are ill without symptoms can still infect other people. “Healthy” patients would have so much virus in their throats that a normal conversation between two people would be enough for a healthy person to infect another healthy person, ”the scientist said.

According to him, doctors in different parts of the world often made mistakes, trying to find a reliable algorithm for treating coronavirus. This is due to the fact that doctors often claim the uniqueness of the coronavirus, but in fact, it is very similar to other viruses that spread according to the season and mutate in the summer.

“The danger of coronavirus is the lack of immunity to it. However, there is no research to confirm this, ”he said.

According to him, all the conclusions that have been made about the coronavirus are not confirmed by scientific facts and arguments.

“This was not science, but pure speculation based on intuition, which everyone repeated one after another,” Stadler said.

He illustrated his suggestion that the new coronavirus had less impact in areas of China where SARS outbreaks had previously occurred, causing SARS.

“This is clear evidence that our immune system considers SARS and coronavirus at least partially similar, and that one virus can protect us from another,” he said.

One more example. Earlier, German scientists conducted a study according to which 34% of Berliners who did not have coronavirus had acquired immunity, for which T cells are responsible. From this it follows that these cells, finding in Sars-CoV-2 a similar structure with the causative agents of the common cold, fight it.

The scientist emphasized the seasonality of the disease, explaining that previously the scientists did not believe in this, because of which many wrong forecasts were made.

“When the initial worst-case scenarios did not materialize anywhere, some still cling to models predicting the second wave,” Stadler points out.

The immunologist is sure that the virus has already disappeared, but, like a seasonal disease, it can return in winter.

“Now the virus has disappeared. Perhaps he will return in the winter, but this will not be the second wave, but a seasonal one. Those young and healthy people who are currently wearing a mask on their faces would be better off wearing a helmet because the risk of something falling on their heads is greater than the risk of becoming seriously infected with coronavirus … And in winter, people who are all they’ll get sick equally, they can put on their masks to show others what they have learned from this pandemic, ”Stadler said.
