The following article was published by Nature Microbiology for its November 2021 issue. It was written by Emily Speranza and explains the implications of an earlier study published by the same journal.
Speranza says that children uninfected and infected by SARS-CoV-2 both have innate immune systems that primed, and hence, offers protection against severe disease. This is based on the earlier study which found that “uninfected children have more immune cells in their nasal passage and that those cells, along with the epithelial cells, have a ‘pre-activated’ signature that is not present in uninfected adults. Children also had stronger innate immune responses than adults after infection with SARS-CoV-2, which suggests that pre-activation may help to control SARS-CoV-2 infection in children”.
Speranza concludes her article with the following words: “These findings shine a light on the role of the host innate immune response in controlling SARS-CoV-2. The innate immune response has an important role in controlling a viral infection in the absence of pre-existing immunity, especially in older populations.”
Editor’s Note: This article is merely a confirmation of various other researches we have found in earlier days that children are in no danger of COVID if their immune systems are healthy [see Understanding the immune system of children may be the key to understanding susceptibility to SARS-COV-2, Why is the coronavirus sparing kids?, Overcome the fear: Sign petition to end lockdowns of children and the youth].
It is also a confirmation that a healthy immune system can protect against severe COVID, despite governments ignoring this fact [Also read The Science is Clear: Our Immune System Can Confer Natural Immunity Against COVID and its Variants, Immune system has 27x more protective power than vaccines: Case for COVID vaccine passports demolished, CDC cheats reporting on breakthrough cases, vaccinated in Israel 6.74 times more likely to be infected, natural immunity the way out].
If children’s immune systems are ready and primed for SARS-CoV-2, then why do they need the COVID vaccine?
Some parents might be tempted to think, “better safe than sorry”, and opt to get their children vaccinated, despite the evidence showing they have no need for it. For these parents, we need to say: vaccinating your children will not only expose them to the risk of side effects, you are also effectively destroying your child’s immune system, exposing them to greater risk of COVID [see No justification for vaccine passports: UK data shows fully vaccinated more prone to COVID infection than unvaccinated, UK Government Data: Vaccinated are Seeing their Immune Response Plummet by About 5% Each Week, Covid-Injection Lowers Natural Immunity by five- to six-fold].
Can you imagine what can happen to your children after a year of coronavirus abuse? [Also read What happens to children’s immune systems after a year of lockdowns and social distancing?, School Closures and Masking Kids are Irrational, Unscientific, and Child abuse.]
Perhaps this is the time to revisit these two articles published in 2020 which has become even more relevant now, see Our immune system is the biggest mystery during this coronavirus outbreak, and What if COVID-19 immunity doesn’t last?
