COVID-19 Protection: Researchers from largest private hospital group in Mexico-Hospital Médica Sur have in a new study found that measles-mumps-rubella MMR II vaccine could offer protection against the COVID-19 disease.


 
The study findings were published in the peer reviewed journal: Allergy (The European Journal Of Allergy and Clinical Immunology) https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/all.14584
 
The current COVID-19 pandemic is accelerating at an exponential phase with daily global infections now crossing the 620,000 mark each day and daily deaths crossing more than 11,000 per day despite stupid media coverage in America and Europe saying that the second wave is peaking or claims that the COVID-19 vaccines are going to provide a solution and that their stupid governments have everything in control!
 
The number of reported global SARS-CoV-2 infections today stands at 58.02 million as and this number continue to rise despite restrictions or lockdowns. A total of 1.38 million have died from COVI9-19 with another half a million more expected to die within the next 40 days till the New Year. Sadly a bulk will be in America and Europe; countries famed for their arrogance and know it all mentality.
 
Ironically their own health systems have not been readily equipped to tackle the growing impact of the second wave and already their public healthcare systems are overstretched. Forget about the long term effects and medical conditions arising from Long COVID as their healthcare systems cannot even afford to do proper follow up screenings etc.
 
A research published this month in mBio, a journal of the American Society for Microbiology, has produced evidence that supports earlier theories that an existing vaccination may protect against the more severe symptoms of SARS-CoV-2 infection. https://mbio.asm.org/content/11/3/e00907-20

The research team found an inverse correlation between levels of mumps titers and the severity of COVID-19 disease symptoms in those who had been vaccinated with the measles-mumps-rubella MMR II vaccine.
 
In early September, a research team at Medica Sur in Mexico City, led by Dr Larenas-Linnemann, published the findings of their latest study, which suggested the role of the MMR vaccine in reducing symptom severity of COVID-19.
 
In this paper, the researchers explained how individuals vaccinated with the MMR vaccine since the beginning of the pandemic seemed to develop less severe symptoms than would be expected.
 
To follow up on the earlier hypothesis, the study team set up a study to investigate the possible connection between the MMR vaccine and COVID-19 symptom severity.
 
For the study, 80 individuals were recruited and allocated into one of two groups, an MMR II group consisting of 50 subjects who primarily had MMR antibodies from the MMR II vaccine, and a comparison group, consisting of those with no record of MMR II vaccinations, and who would have obtained any MMR antibodies from other
