There is some good news in the fight to potentially stop the Coronavirus. Scientists are calling it the “One Big Trick.” For hundreds of thousands of people experiencing the debilitating effects of this virus, it’s beyond a welcome relief. However, people get mild to extreme symptoms that can cause debilitating issues for suffering. Yet, this good news comes from Shane Crotty. Crotty is a professor in the Center for Infectious Disease and Vaccine Research at the La Jolla Institute for Immunology. What is “the trick”? The trick comes from avoiding the human body’s “initial innate immune response for a significant period of time.” In fact, this relates to the response of a substance called interferon. Therefore, that typically helps orchestrate the defense against viral pathogens – linking to more severe cases.
Insufficient Amount of Interferon
New studies by Science last week, show an insufficient amount of interferon. Because of this, the production may sometimes have suppression in people that previously had “silent” gene mutations. In other instances, disabled by a person’s immune response, could reveal a more dangerous infection. As a result, scientists are catching on to the strategy of the virus and finding better ways to prevent it from causing devastating infections. The scientists’ work demonstrates and illustrates the possibility of interferon-therapies therapies.
As a result, the therapies often have the best outcomes in the early stages of a viral infection. This is because it is easier to avoid life-threatening respiratory failure. Currently, there are many studies that focus on interferon.

Where did the Coronavirus Virus Come From
According to WebMD, Coronaviruses are a big family of different viruses. Some of the viruses cause the common cold in people. They infect animals, including bats, camels, and cattle. How did Coronavirus causing COVID-19, come into being? Experts say the SARS-CoV-2 originated in bats.
