Scientists are trying to figure out why the coronavirus in some people runs without symptoms, while others end up in intensive care. The first assumptions on this matter were made by the leading expert of the CMD Center for Molecular Diagnostics of the Central Research Institute of Epidemiology of Rospotrebnadzor Mikhail Lebedev.

As the scientist said “Russian newspaper", The reaction of the body primarily depends on the individual genetic characteristics of the patient. To identify a gene that does not allow coronavirus into the body, scientists examine the genomes of patients. Also, a risk group will be identified, which may have a severe course of coronavirus.

So far, it is only known that mutations in the gene encoding the ACE2 protein, through which the coronavirus enters the cells, can facilitate or hinder the virus's path into the body. Also leukocyte genes are now being carefully studied.

Recently, Areg Totolyan, director of the St. Petersburg Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology named after Pasteur, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, said that some people immune to coronavirus... Further study of this group may suggest a more effective and simpler way to combat coronavirus than a vaccine.
