Coronavirus far more likely than Sars to bond to human cells due to HIV-like mutation, scientists say: “This virus may use the packing mechanisms of other viruses such as HIV.”

The new coronavirus has an HIV-like mutation that means its ability to bind with human cells could be up to 1,000 times as strong as the Sars virus, according to new research by scientists in China and Europe.

Other highly contagious viruses, including HIV and Ebola, target an enzyme called furin, which works as a protein activator in the human body. Many proteins are inactive or dormant when they are produced and have to be “cut” at specific points to activate their various functions.

WHO Claims Coronavirus Is In Some Ways Worse Than Spanish Flu … Which Killed Tens of Millions

The World Health Organization (WHO) announced yesterday that the mortality rate from the Wuhan Coronavirus (formally known as 2019 nCoV) is 3.4% globally.

The Spanish Flu of 1918 – which killed between tens of millions of people – had a lower mortality rate, estimated by the WHO as between 2 and 3%.

The Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy notes:

Based on calculations, the authors of the larger study estimate the novel coronavirus has an R0 of 2.2, meaning each case patient could infect more than 2 other people. If accurate, this makes the 2019 nCoV more infectious than the 1918 influenza pandemic virus, which had an R0 of 1.80 (interquartile range: 1.47 to 2.27).

The WHO said during its Tuesday press conference that the death rate for Covid-19 is higher than the 2% previously believed. By comparison, the flu kills 0.1% of those infected. The WHO credited the “rapidly growing insight” into the virus thanks to the research that has been carried out since the outbreak began.

“More people are susceptible to infection and some will suffer serious disease. Globally about 3.4 percent of COVID-19 cases have died,” he said. “By comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1 percent of those infected.”
