Hello, corona viruses are rife everywhere, this is my own thought, can people who have Autoimmune Disease be infected? if indeed it can be infected with a higher cure rate or lower? because this disease is a malignant immune system that attacks healthy cells, can this autoimmune disease protect the sufferer from corona? Thank you …

1 Answer:

Good night. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.


Autoimmune disease is a disease that is related to a disturbance in a person's immune system so that it cannot function optimally even attacking parts of the body or normal body cells of the person itself so that it will cause several symptoms. Some types of autoimmune diseases are

Lupus
Rheumatoid arthritis
Rheumatic kidney disease

This will usually cause the function of the body's normal immune cells to be reduced so that it is classified as a person who has a low immune system or immunocopremised. This in general they will be more susceptible to contracting viruses or bacteria because their body's immune function is not optimal.
