Dr. Noha Misbah, deputy of the Institute of Biotechnology at Suez Canal University, warned of the genetic mutations of the Coronavirus and its effect on humans in the next phase in light of the second wave of the virus.
She said in exclusive statements to Al-Masry Al-Youm, on the sidelines of the biotechnology conference to combat Corona at Suez Canal University held Thursday, that Egyptians should distance themselves as much as possible, wear the mask and crowds and gatherings. avoid because the virus is not transmitted by air, but from one person to another nearby.
The Egyptian researcher attributed the lack of infection in some countries in Africa or even in people, whether elderly or young, compared to others of the same age and circumstances, to what she called the viral load they are exposed to, the intensity. of the virus, and pointed out that the intensity of exposure to the virus is a leading cause of infection and death, as evidenced by the occurrence of deaths among medical staff, she said. She said the genetic differences specific to each person contribute to the prevention and protection of the virus.
The researcher, Dr. Beer Shalaby, professor and vice-dean of the Institute of Technology, for her part, confirmed that there are many studies that focus on studying the nature of the human genome and virus to make a work. to protect humans from the virus entering humans, and build immunity to ward off the virus, and she described this research as a major challenge he is facing. Scientists in order to decipher the mystery and codes of the virus’s genome, and that it will not take long and in order to achieve this, precautions must be followed.
