We all have an immune system. Our immune system is a learning organization. It is vital that your immune system is in the best condition it can be, to learn. The primary function of our immune system is a complex structure that defends the body against an intruder. It keeps a record of every germ it has ever defeated so it can recognise and destroy it more quickly if it enters the body again.
Immune systems are saving the lives of millions of people across the world, whether with Covid-19 or any other infection – let’s hear it for our immune systems.
Every time you hear how many have died, multiply it by 5, 10, 50, 100, 500…… then realise how many people have survived, thanks to their immune system. Goodness knows what the right multiplier is, as our governments are not good at counting those who recover.
Then there are all these asymptomatic people whose immune system was so good they didn’t even know they had had it. Those who have had Covid-19 and recover, your immune system will have been upgraded, you might like to think of it just like a computer upgrade, to the latest version.
