We have been fighting Covid for several years and there are some people who have never been diagnosed with the disease. Are they an anomaly? A special kind of person? How do people avoid this disease?

dr. Melissa Clarke is here with several reasons why, and according to her, “The fact is that those who remained without COVID are a minority segment of the population. Only part of the population remained without Covid; disease is everywhere.”

1. Masks

The first reason is camouflage. dr. Melissa Clarke is convinced that masking has been a significant help in preventing the spread of Covid, believing that “The healthiest people are those who have been loyal mask wearers during the pandemic”. There are a huge number of masks to wear, but the best are the N95, as they provide the most protection. The next highest level of protection is KN95 masks. Surgical masks provide much less protection and cloth masks are very ineffective.

2. Social distancing

Another reason is that you may be good at physical distancing. Distancing allows circulation, keeping infected particles from crowding. Those who think they have avoided the virus for so long were able to successfully physically distance themselves, which includes working from home, avoiding indoor gatherings in crowded places, and isolating themselves from household members while they were infected with COVID.

The following two reasons are still being investigated.

3. Accumulated antibodies

You may have a lot of immune cells and antibodies built up in your system from previous cold infections caused by other previous coronaviruses. These people have built-in protection against contracting the SARS COVID 2 virus.

4. Genetics

A fourth potential reason being investigated is genetics. A minority of people’s bodies may not be sensitive enough to the virus due to genetic variations that make it difficult for the coronavirus to attach to and enter their cells.

5. You may have had it unknowingly

And finally, most people who think they haven’t gotten Covid probably have, but never realized it. According to dr. Melissa Clarke, “40% of people who become infected will never develop symptoms, and many more have had mild symptoms and were never tested for COVID, so they didn’t know they had it.”
