For some COVID-19 patients, getting over their infection is just the beginning of the recovery. Over the last year, COVID “long haulers” have continued experiencing a variety of symptoms months after the virus clears. These include anything from skin problems, to shortness of breath, to losing the sense of taste or smell. Now, researchers say they may know why this is happening. A new study finds coronavirus actually causes long-term changes to an infected patient’s genes.

Specifically, scientists reveal the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing COVID-19, creates long-lasting changes to human gene expression. These tiny spikes cover the surface of coronavirus cells. They allow the virus to bind to certain receptors on human cells and hijack their functions — leading to COVID infection. Once the spike cuts into a patient’s cells, the virus releases its own genetic material into the cell so it can replicate.

“We found that exposure to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein alone was enough to change baseline gene expression in airway cells,” says Nicholas Evans, a master’s student at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, in a media release. “This suggests that symptoms seen in patients may initially result from the spike protein interacting with the cells directly.”

Spikes make long-term changes to human lung cells

Researchers examined how exposure to spike protein impacts cultured human airway cells in lab experiments. They also compared the results to studies using cell samples from actual COVID-19 patients.

The team notes culturing human airway cells requires time and specific conditions which help the cells mature. This allows the lab cells to develop into the different cells living in a real human airway. To do this, study authors refined a culturing technique called air-liquid interface so they could more closely simulate the conditions in an actual patient’s lungs.

After culturing, scientists exposed the cells to low and high concentrations of purified spike protein. The results reveal differences in gene expression which remained in the cells even after the infection passed. The most affected genes include ones controlling the body’s inflammatory response.

“Our work helps to elucidate changes occurring in patients on the genetic level, which could eventually provide insight into which treatments would work best for specific patients,” Evans explains.

Study authors now plan to use this approach to examine how long these genetic changes last. They also hope to reveal what other long-term consequences a COVID infection will have on a patient’s health.

The team is presenting their findings at Experimental Biology (EB) 2021, a virtual meeting of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

The Mr. Magoo Presidency    Many of you may remember Mr. Magoo as the character in an old cartoon from the 1960’s starring an elderly, wealthy, short-statured retiree who gets into a series of comical situations as a result of his extreme near-sightedness, compounded by his stubborn refusal to recognize the problems he encounters.    Joe Biden in his fog of confusion is the incarnation of Magoo.  As our new President stumbles into office while inheriting an America in troubled times, Sleepy Joe will bounce from one crisis to another becoming the most inept American President in modern times. President Magoo will… Read more »

These ‘theories’ about the SARS-COV2 ‘virus’ only serve to perpetuate the myth. SARS-COV2 is a computer model of a ‘virus’ made by Dr. Christian Drosten that has never been isolated and proven to exist and/or to be pathogenic based on Koch’s Postulates. Until that is done all this speculation only helps to serve those who invented the myth and are profiting from it. Lies lead to more lies and they will never end until we realize that the Germ Theory hypothesis itself is wrong. Dr. Stefan Lanka has done a great expose on what he calls ‘The Virus Misconception’:

Thanks for this comment, you saved me making it myself!


I fully agree. I was about to comment, but you have stated the facts. There is no such virus nor has any bacteria or virus (which are probably exosomes that come from our own bodies) has ever caused any disease. Of course, the fake vaccine can cause many evils.


Patrick Wood got the memo that SARS-CoV-2 is only a computer model but continues to push the satanic media version. So what are we to think about Patrick? … Limited hangout?


I watched a very interesting interview – video on the Naked Emperor blog which showed that there were six gain of function to CV 19 that specifically targets humans. Six being an improbably astronomical number to naturally take place and target one species. Apparently bats cannot ‘get’ SARS 2 -CV 19 as it is so specific. If true this would blow other theories out of the water as to CV 19 origins as definitely a laboratory product.


This is BS, Patrick. You need to get on board the science that there is no SARS-CoV-2 virus. It’s a computer-generated virus model. It doesn’t exist and the CDC admits they don’t have it.×9
