New Theory Of How COVID-19 Infects Humans

Health Editor’s Note: The Oak Ridge National Lab’s Summit supercomputer put together data of more than 40,000 genes from 17,000 genetic samples to try to better understand COVID-19 and how it infects people. After analyzing 2.5 billion genetic combinations the a new hypothesis evolved to explain many of the bizarre symptoms associated with COVID-19 and potential treatments.
The new findings are that the virus enters the nose through the many ACE2 receptors located there. Then the virus travels throughout the body to the intestines, heart,and kidneys where other ACE2 receptors are present. From here the virus hijacks the body’s own systems and tricks them into upregulating ACE2 receptors in places that have low to medium levels, namely the lungs.
The RAS system control the circulatory system which includes the level of bradykinin which specifically regulates blood pressure. As the virus weakens the RAS system, the mechanism for regulating bradykinin goes nuts and the body stops breaking down bradykinin. The result is a massive buildup of bradykinin “bradykinin storms’ in the body and this is ultimately responsible for many of the worst effects of COVID-19. Previously research pointed to cytokine storms as the culprit for pathologies.
The bradykinin storm leads to blood vessels that leak and cause the lungs to fill with fluid and create more inflammation.
This article has so much information that leads to proofs of why COVID-19 is so efficient in creating victims and deaths. Read it for some better insight into how the COVID-19 virus works….Carol
