Points of view

Elizabeth Blackburn (Australia), 2009 Nobel Prize in Medicine for the discovery of telomeres, asked him about the relationship between these chromosome fragments and the Covid-19, and said there are some studies. When these are measured in leukocytes you have a window into the individual’s immune system. The shorter the telomere, the more severe the infection.

Blackburn with a group of scientists sent a letter to the President of the United States to lift the patents on vaccines.
