(ORDO NEWS) — Unexpected scientific information – it turns out that Covid-19 mowed down those who carried the gene in themselves from a sexual intercourse between 1 Neanderthal and 1 representative of the “House of Reason”, which occurred 60,000 years ago, as a result of which a child was born. Simply put, Covid killed the offspring of this interbreeding that had a distinctive marker in their DNA.
About 60,000 years ago, human sexual contact with a Neanderthal took place. A genetic scientist claims that this single sexual act has caused the deaths of up to a million people during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As of June 12, 2022, 6,331,211 people have died from the COVID-19 outbreak. Now an English scientist has published a study on the impact of genetic differences between the lungs of people suffering from Covid.
His results, published in the journal Nature Genetics, suggest that a single “romantic relationship” between a Neanderthal and a human about 60,000 years ago caused up to a million deaths during the recent pandemic.
Although you have heard the word “genes” thousands of times, do you know what a gene really is? According to MedilinePlus, genes are made up of DNA and are the basic physical and functional unit of heredity.
Mystery was largely removed from the genes when the Human Genome International Research Project sequenced the 3.2 billion DNA letters of the human genome, showing that humans have between 20,000 and 25,000 distinct genes that code for data. ancestors.
At the recent Cheltenham Science Festival, Professor James Davies, Associate Professor of Genomics at Oxford University’s Radcliffe School of Medicine, stated that one of these genes (LZTFL1) “causes a common genetic trait that makes the lungs susceptible to infections.”
The researcher concluded that the LZTFL1 gene was inherited as a result of “a single interspecies relationship and the birth of one child”, which led to the death of about 1 million carriers of this gene as a result of Covid-19 infection.
LZTFL1 causes cells to make too much of a certain protein on the surface of some people’s lungs. The coronavirus clings to this protein, allowing the disease to spread faster through the lungs, which can be fatal.
And, as the professor claims, this so-called genetic anomaly is more common in people from South Asia, which may be why there were more deaths in India during the pandemic. However, this is not a completely new discovery.
Last February, a team of scientists said they had discovered “a Neanderthal Covid gene that reduces our ability to fight the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes Covid-19.”
These scientists from Japan’s Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) and the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Germany found that “interbreeding between modern humans and Neanderthals resulted in us inheriting this gene about 60,000 years ago.”
They concluded that people with this lung-weakening gene are “three times more likely to need mechanical ventilation if they catch the virus.”
Dr. Davies was so confident in his findings that he pointed to a single case of sexual intercourse between a Neanderthal and a human as the cause of the genetic conditions that make the lungs more susceptible to Covid infection.
And if that one sexual relationship hadn’t happened, then, according to the researcher, up to a million people could not have died from Covid.
And it’s not just speculation. The scientist calculated that the gene originated from “28 single-letter changes that can be traced back to the beginning.” Thus, he concluded that the gene originated from “a single instance of interspecies mating that resulted in the birth of a child.”
Speaking of sexual relationships, Professor Simon Underdown, a biological anthropologist at Oxford Brookes University, told the Science Festival that Neanderthal groups were very scattered, with only 20-25 individuals in each group.
He argues that it was a single sexual relationship that led to the fact that many modern people have severe reactions to severe forms of Covid.
At the same time, he emphasized that the meeting of a Neanderthal with Homo sapiens and a single sexual contact led to the appearance in modern people of a gene in the lungs that contributes to death after infection with Covid-19.
