Coronavirus research is in full swing in Bangladesh

A new study on coronavirus has caused a stir in Bangladesh. Studies have shown that a portion of the DNA attached to the corona came into the human body from a particular human species some 70,000 years ago. And this special variant of this Neanderthal has the most in the body of Bangladeshis in the world. At least one version of this genome is found in 83% of the people in Bangladesh. Its circulation is also relatively high across South Asia. 33% of the people in this region have inherited this gene. This figure came from a study by the world-famous Karolinska Institute in Sweden. The New York Times published the findings of this shocking study.

Joshua Ake, a geneticist at Princeton University in the United States, said the study showed that the effects of hybrid reproduction that occurred 60,000 years ago are still felt in humans today. According to the New York Times, there is a possibility that this Neanderthal gene is harmful. Overall it is becoming rare. It is also possible that this gene has improved the health of people in South Asia. Probably due to the presence of this gene, the immune system in the human body of this region has been able to react strongly against the coronavirus.

Researchers are trying to understand why Kovid-19 is so dangerous for some people

Get up, and in the case of some people behave very simply. Roughly speaking,

Men are more at risk than adults and women. Social inequality is also a big factor, said Tony Capra, a geneticist at Vanderbilt University. “But we have to remember that it was 40,000 years ago,” he said. And now is a different time. ‘

According to him, it may be that the immune system, which used to work against the old virus, overreacts to the new coronavirus. For example, in people who are seriously ill with Covid-19 disease, it has been found that their immune systems begin to eliminate the virus uncontrollably or excessively.

For these reasons, one of the authors of the study and director of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Germany, Pabo, said that people of Bangladeshi descent in the UK

They may be part of the reason for the relatively high mortality rate
