Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is not so evil as it seemed at first American virologist

Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 may in fact not be as dangerous as previously thought. Such opinion in interview to “Observer” was expressed by an American virologist, Deputy Director for science, division of vaccines Management on sanitary inspection behind quality of foodstuff and medicines (FDA), USA Konstantin Chumakov.

“The virus SARS-CoV-2, which causes the disease COVID-19, not very harmful. Data is starting to emerge, how many people actually got infected, fell ill and died – it appears that the mortality is less than 1%. Official data show that from 2% to 5%. In Italy even more. But this is due to the fact that we have no good statistics on the exact number of sick and infected. Skip a deceased person is difficult, and cases easily, not to mention those who became infected and has no symptoms,” – said Chumakov.

According to him, research on the presence of antibodies to the coronavirus show that infected COVID-19 approximately 50-80 times more “than it says official statistics on cases”.

“This is very good news. It means: the virus is not so evil as it seemed at first. Even now, despite the fact that the epidemic has been raging for two months, the same US the number of deaths is still less than from seasonal flu. So, the scale of the pandemic should be considered in the comparison,” said a virologist.

Chumakov added that subsequently the aggressiveness of the coronavirus can be reduced.

“All viruses by going to a new population, first the threat, but gradually become gentle. If a virus kills its host, or sends it to the hospital, he falls out of circulation and cannot be transferred to another. Passed only those viruses that his master is not killed, so that it can continue to infect others. Therefore, any new virus is slowly becoming less dangerous. It is a fundamental biological law,” he said.
