Nov 19 - New Report: Africa is Immune to Covid
 

 
Africa avoids Covid disaster - scientists are mystified and wary


At a busy market in a poor township outside Harare this week, Nyasha Ndou kept his mask in his pocket as hundreds of other people, mostly unmasked, jostled to buy and sell fruit and vegetables displayed on wooden tables and plastic sheets. As in much of Zimbabwe, here the coronavirus is quickly being relegated to the past, as political rallies, concerts and home gatherings have returned.

"Covid-19 is gone, when did you last hear of anyone who has died of Covid-19?" Ndou said. "The mask is to protect my pocket," he said. "The police demand bribes so I lose money if I don't move around with a mask." Earlier this week, Zimbabwe recorded just 33 new Covid-19 cases and zero deaths, in line with a recent fall in the disease across the continent, where World Health Organisation data show that infections have been dropping since July.

When the coronavirus first emerged last year, health officials feared the pandemic would sweep across Africa, k*lling millions. Although it's still unclear what Covid-19's ultimate toll will be, that catastrophic scenario has yet to materialise in Zimbabwe or much of the continent.

Scientists emphasise that obtaining accurate Covid-19 data, particularly in African countries with patchy surveillance, is extremely difficult, and warn that declining coronavirus trends could easily be reversed.

But there is something "mysterious" going on in Africa that is puzzling scientists, said Wafaa El-Sadr, chair of global health at Columbia University. "Africa doesn't have the vaccines and the resources to f*ght Covid-19 that they have in Europe and the US, but somehow they seem to be doing better," she said.

Fewer than 6 per cent of people in Africa are vaccinated. For months, the WHO has described Africa as "one of the least affected regions in the world" in its weekly pandemic reports.

Some researchers say the continent's younger population - the average age is 20 versus about 43 in Western Europe — in addition to their lower rates of urbanisation and tendency to spend time outdoors, may have spared it the more lethal effects of the virus so far. Several studies are probing whether there might be other explanations, including genetic reasons or past infection with parasitic diseases.

On Friday, researchers working in Uganda said they found Covid-19 patients with high rates of exposure to malaria were less likely to suffer severe disease or death than people with little history of the disease.

"We went into this project thinking we would see a higher rate of negative outcomes in people with a history of malaria infections because that's what was seen in patients co-infected with malaria and Ebola," said Jane Achan, a senior research adviser at the Malaria Consortium and a co-author of the study. "We were actually quite surprised to see the opposite — that malaria may have a protective effect."

Achan said this may suggest that past infection with malaria could "blunt" the tendency of people's immune systems to go into overdrive when they are infected with Covid-19. The research was presented on Friday at a meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.

There's some drug there that they use heavy. It's for malaria but when rona first dropped ppl in Africa were joking about taking that drug like aspirin on social media. Kinda like Chris Rock joked about tussen. Pour tussen on a broken bone... It's an anti parasite medicine. There's something there, I'm sure, if people look.

I know it was the blood…




To the West he gave the black race of people the Guardianship of the water. They were to learn the teachings of the water which is the chief of the elements, being the most humble and the most powerful. When I went to the University of Washington and I learned that it was a black man who discovered blood plasma, it didn't surprise me because blood is water and the elders already told me the black people would bring the teachings of the water.

The diseases that affected all other races did not apply to us after being enslaved from Africa.

We are the oldest and strongest.

that's what I think too. It's mentioned in the article that immunity from malaria due to previous infections may have played a major role.

A certain orange tinted somebody had a point that most people here won't readily admit.

Why aren't black people in America fortunate to have the same immunity if that is the case?

I'm going to go with the article on this one and a*sume it's more to do with the malaria medication that's been reported to f*ght covid over "black supremacy" like a few people in here are implying.

some of the rumor mills online claim that covid is a parasite or something of the sorts which is why that horse dewormer was claimed to be working for a lot of folks. I haven't done the research so I can't call it but it's interesting to see you post this about Malaria and the parasite medicine African's take for Malaria.

no such thing as coincidence.

I am…

I survived…

It’s only the ones in great shape…

Not the diabetic overweight (comorbidity) Black Americans.

The difference vs Africans is the daily intake of food and a non-sedentary lifestyle.

Didn’t even see your comment before i responded to OP.

Only makes sense right?

Bodies created and working in the way that they were meant to function.

I hear you. It has like 99% survival rate, it's dangerous to some people but definitely blown out of proportion. My younger bro and his fam got it like 3 times, he didn't want to stop going out and partying, his kids got it and all that they're all doing good. God bless.

Yeah Hydroxychloroquine. The same medicine that big pharma and Fauci and the mainstream media tried to tell everyone it didn't work....It does work and Africa is living proof.

Yes it's called Ivermectin but the fake news media, vaccine nazis and lab rats all called it horse dewormer because they prefer their clot shots like good little sheep

Immune to covid, but not immune to starvation, reading, writing, working, & acting civilized
"Oldest, smartest, healthiest/whatever" but in last place socially economically and in some places still live in grass huts. How does that happen? Let me guess, white man's fault. How does the weaker race beat the strong one and make them their slaves?
