Sputnik – A woman infected with the HIV virus in South Africa had been living with SARS-CoV-2 for nine months, during which time the virus in her body had 21 mutations, according to the study.
The article with the research results was published on the Social Science Research Network (SSRN) website.
As the article mentions, she had a beta strain. In addition, the person had not received proper HIV treatment for a long time and was born.
“A 22-year-old woman with progressive HIV infection was infected with a beta variant of SARS-CoV-2 at nine months, meanwhile, the virus achieved more than 20 additional mutations,” the study said. South African scientists ..
In January 2021, the patient was confirmed to have Govit-19. In September, he was admitted to a hospital in Cape Town, where Covit-19 was confirmed.
The study carried out showed that this was precisely a case of infection lasting nine months and that there was no recurrence. It was only in late November that she came across as negative.
In addition, since January last year, the woman has had problems with HIV treatment, which resumed after she was admitted to the hospital. “Antiretroviral therapy suppressed HIV and killed the SARS-CoV-2 virus in six to nine months,” the study said.
The authors of the study conclude that the case studied “concludes evidence that strong suppression of immunity associated with uncontrolled HIV infection may lead to chronic infections with SARS-CoV-2”.
As mentioned, this leads to the accumulation of mutations, some of which escape the immune response, resulting in the appearance of new variants in the organism.
