Chances of infection with the virus: The director of the Corona unit at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital, Prof. Dror Mevorach, clarifies that: “The virus attacks families with a genetic defect resulting from a lack of immune protein. An early DNA test can be performed to detect the problem.

Is it possible to perform an early test to detect the chances of infection in the corona? According to Prof. Dror Mevorach, director of the corona unit at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem, the answer is yes. He said these things tonight in an interview with “Here.”

The senior doctor, who has gained a great deal of experience in treating corona patients, explained that the chances of someone whose immune system suffers from a pre-detectable defect to develop corona are higher. It is estimated that this is a chance to get serious complications resulting from corona infection, and not just a mild illness or test that has a positive outcome.

According to him, the said defect can be identified in advance through an appropriate genetic test, although it is not clear what the test involves, what its cost is and how long it takes to get its results.

The senior doctor’s remarks may explain several cases of members of one family who fell ill in Corona and needed prolonged hospitalizations. The most notable case is that of the Oberlander family – the two brothers and the son of one of them, who died as a result of complications due to infection with the virus.

However, things have not yet received research confirmation, and they were said based on his experience in treating dozens of patients, but without a comprehensive examination of a wider number of patients as is customary in the practice of medical research.
