A nurse from North Carolina said that she treats patients with the coronavirus, who attended “coronavirus parties”to intentionally become infected and develop immunity.
According to Yolanda Enrich, nurses from the medical center Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center, for the last few days, the hospital staff often hears from patients that they are not afraid to get COVID-19.
“People are really trying to get a virus, so attend meetings, parties, seeking to maximize their chances of infection.” says Enrich.
The nurse shared that young patients told the doctors about them, hoping to produce antibodies, so they do not comply with recommended actions that will help to protect against coronavirus. In fact, it is still unknown whether it is possible to develop immunity against the new virus.
“We are really concerned about this trend,” said Enrich. “They can spread the virus throughout the community and to harm our vulnerable population that will have serious consequences for health.”
Governor Roy Cooper and public health officials in the state are sounding the alarm about disturbing trends. At the press conference, Cooper said that such meetings are irresponsible and totally unacceptable.
“You can easily kill someone you love.” he said.
Dr. Mandy Cohen, Secretary of the Department of health and human services of North Carolina, said that the increased cases of coronavirus poses a risk to the risk group – the elderly and people with chronic diseases.
“Under any circumstances we don’t want people actively pursued COVID-19”, – said Cohen. “The reason we are working diligently to reduce the spread of the virus, is that, the increase of cases in our community not only affects those who have it, but especially those who are at high risk to get a serious reaction to the disease.”
In early may of Soumya Swaminathan, a leading researcher who rejected the idea that the way of infection can develop immunity against coronavirus. Studies have shown that the level of natural immunity throughout the world is only 10-15 percent is very far from far-90-95 percent, which will help to develop immunity in the population of the planet. According to her, the result of deliberate infection will increase mortality.
