Measles vaccine may be immune to COVID-19
In 2019, when a measles outbreak swept the Pacific country of Samoa, doctors visited almost every home to vaccinate residents. Almost 90% of the population was vaccinated against mumps, measles and rubella; everyone was vaccinated: children and adults. And when a pandemic began in the world, in Samoa, surprisingly, they almost did not feel the danger of COVID-19. This is stated in the video "Voices of America".
Madagascar, Hong Kong, and South Korea also recently experienced measles outbreaks and mass vaccinated populations. In all these countries, a low level of infection with coronavirus was recorded.
“There is a clear link between the mumps, measles and rubella vaccine and the population with the best immunity to COVID-19,” says Jeff Gold, information scientist at the World Health Organization (WHO).
The scientist also analyzed countries with a low measles vaccination rate.
“Italy was one of the least vaccinated countries against measles as of 2002. Then the UK, France, the United States and Germany, ”says Jeff.
Gold's findings show that in places where measles vaccination was massively carried out, adults were less vulnerable to coronavirus than residents of countries where vaccination rates were lower. Experts also draw attention to studies at the University of Cambridge, which indicate that it is the rubella component in the CCP vaccine that enhances human immunity. Scientists in several countries are now studying this theory.
At this time, surveys of Syrian children in one of the refugee camps in Turkey showed that they had to be hospitalized six times less than Turkish citizens.
“We need to study in detail the people vaccinated with the CCP vaccine, except for children - immigrants, soldiers, tourists, and compare them with groups of adults who did not have the CCP vaccine,” says Ramazan O'kaya, a scientist at the University of Kahramanmaras.
According to the chief infectious disease specialist in the United States, Dr. Anthony Fauci, it’s worth trying everything that could improve people's health and protect them from illness, especially during a pandemic.
“There is a theory that if you get vaccinated with, say, a measles vaccine, it will also protect you from coronavirus. This theory has not yet been fully proven, ”Fauci said.
Researchers hope to prove this theory. If the CCP vaccine really protects against coronavirus, it could be used all over the world without further testing, because it has already been proven that it is safe and mainly available in all countries. At least, the researchers hope, she could provide temporary protection until a vaccine against COVID-19 appears.
