The Science Behind the Coronavirus, Series II 4.5

In this second installment of our “The Science Behind the Coronavirus” series, Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, the executive chairman of the Los Angeles Times, continues his examination of the ways the scientific community is taking up the battle against COVID-19.

Soon-Shiong (MD, MBBCh, MSc, FRCS (C), FACS) begins his presentation with a warning: The virus is continuing to mutate and is here to stay. But, Soon-Shiong adds, there is hope. Over an introduction and six parts, Soon-Shiong explains how scientists around the world are considering treating patients suffering from stages of COVID-19.

Finally, Soon-Shiong breaks down the medical concepts researchers are pondering as they search for a vaccine. Soon-Shiong is a surgeon and scientist who has spent his career studying the human immune system to fight cancer and infectious diseases. He is also the chairman and chief executive of NantWorks and the owner of or investor in a number of companies, including ImmunityBio and NantKwest, which are currently researching immunotherapies for COVID-19.

Yes. This is SARS-CoV-2. Many ppl don’t know this. It’s extremely contagious & can end in ARDS symptoms that cause the immune system to create something called a cytokine storm.

This virus didn’t find a way to hijack our bodies, it was shown the way and bio engineered to be highly infectious to humans by the CCP through the Wuhan virology lab. It’s War. A way for the Communist party to throw its weight around and show their power that all countries are responsible for giving to them in the first place. People need to open their damn eyes and quit letting propaganda and the WHO control their minds. The blind leading the blind.
