University of Washington: Model finds COVID-19 deaths among elderly may be due to genetic limit on cell division

University of Washington: Model finds COVID-19 deaths among elderly may be due to genetic limit on cell division. “Your immune system’s ability to combat COVID-19, like any infection, largely depends on its ability to replicate the immune cells effective at destroying the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes the disease. These cloned immune cells cannot be infinitely created, and a key hypothesis of a new University of Washington study is that the body’s ability to create these cloned cells falls off significantly in old age.”
