– In Australia three times the number of cases have been seen in people in their 30s than in those over 60.
– For the first time, researchers at the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity understand how humans fight off the virus. Laboratory head Katherine Kedzierska found people’s immune system responded to coronavirus in the same way we try to fight the flu.
“The immune cell populations we have seen emerging before patients recover are the same cells that we see in influenza,” she said.
