More than two years have passed since the outbreak of the Corona epidemic, infecting millions of people in the world, but some people have escaped infection to this day, amid questions about the secret of their survival from the “Covid 19” disease that has reached various parts of the world.

According to estimates by the American Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 60 percent of Americans were infected with the Corona virus at some point until late February, before a widespread outbreak of the “BA.4” and “BA.5” mutants.

Some people were not infected with the Corona virus only once, but there are those who were infected two or even three times, despite taking vaccinations against the infection that first appeared in China in late 2019.

And the “Washington Post” newspaper wrote that the Corona virus had reached people in highly protected circles such as leaders of countries, as US President Joe Biden contracted the virus a few days ago, and at the beginning of the year, Anthony Fauci himself, who is the chief infectious disease adviser, was infected with the virus. in the United States.

While some people have remained immune to the virus and have not contracted it at all, questions arise as to whether they have “super immunity” or if it is just a coincidence that they do not become infected.

The newspaper spoke to people who said that they had been going out as they wished for a long time, and had contact with a number of infected people, but they had survived the disease that killed millions of people.

Regarding these cases, the epidemiologist, Eleanor Murray, explains that there is no evidence, from a scientific point of view, that some people have “genetic immunity” that makes them safe from infection.

Researchers believe that some people were infected with corona, but did not discover the transmission of the infection to them, due to the absence of symptoms, and this makes the health authorities in the world believe that the actual number of infected people is much higher than what is officially registered.

Catherine Wallace, a researcher in epidemiology at the University of Illinois, says that some people who contract corona after escaping the virus for two years feel a kind of failure or frustration, as if they failed in the task of protecting themselves from infection through preventive measures such as distancing and wearing a muzzle.

And the American expert explains that these people forget an important thing, which is that “they are not bad people because they failed and picked up the virus, but the new mutant – the fastest spreading – is the bad one.”
