RE: How bats carry viruses without getting sick. Journal club

Very well articulated. And it is very important for letting the doctors choose if and when the anti inflammatory drugs should be given. And a good doctor who cares and can make that choice is very crucial.

There are two regions of the coronavirus orf3a which is known to activate NLRP3 response and orf9b which inhibits anti-viral interferon response. I think drugs against those might come handy to more specifically tune the immune response. Lets see what comes out with time.

Thank you for that gracious response. I'm going to read up on orf3a, NLRP3, and orf9b. It's likely I'll find the material challenging, but I am curious to see what sense I might make of it.

Good health to you and your family
