It’s Not The Virus that Kills You, It’s Your Immune System

Description

Today we’re going to talk about viruses and the immune system. It’s not the virus that kills you. It’s actually your own immune system. 




The virus doesn’t have a metabolism. It’s not even alive. Here’s what happens. You have this inactive shell with some DNA that has some very specific instructions to replicate. There are certain things on the surface of the virus that connect to certain tissues and certain receptors in the cell. 




For example, COVID-19 connects to the ACE2 receptor. Once it connects, it’s able to get into the cell. Once inside of the cell, the immune system doesn’t see it at first. The goal of the virus is to get into the cell and replicate as fast as possible. This creates a lot of damage and an immune reaction, but it’s not what kills you. 




Let’s say you have COVID-19, you’re on a respirator, and you have cytokine storm. This is creating massive destruction, which can lead to death. This destructive inflammatory condition is also happening on the inside of your arteries, and it can even create blood clots. The innate part of the immune system is overreacting because part of the adaptive immune system is not working.




The T suppressor cells, which are a part of the adaptive immune system, suppress or regulate the overreaction. But, there is a severe imbalance going on where you lose the adaptive immune system, including the T suppressor cells, and there is too much of the innate immune system causing the overreaction. This is what’s really killing people. 




The virus is a trigger, and it causes damage, but the virus mainly seems to kill people with a weak immune system. It’s usually certain metabolic conditions that cause weakness within the T suppressor cells.
