CD4 count below 350 increases the risk of severe COVID-19

Interesting article. I’m glad I had my jab (Pfizer) a few weeks ago with my 2nd booked. Many UK patients aren’t given their CD4 as a matter or routine, if we have HIV (group 6) plus other comorbidities then we can move up into group 4. Currently we are vaccinating group 2.
There were another 2 new strains announced, obviously novel enough that there hasn’t been enough testing done. It is all a bit of hit-and-miss sadly but, to me, some immunity is better than none at all.
I’m grateful to be around 900
@A myHIVteam Member I’m sorry to hear about your count. Is it getting any better? I hope so and pray your well my beautiful friend. 😊
My doctor in Rome told me there s nothing to worry about once the virus load is undetectable.

How Many Coronaviruses Are There?
Coronaviruses didn’t just pop up recently. They’re a large family of viruses that have been around for a long time. Many of them can cause a variety of illnesses, from a mild cough to severe respiratory illnesses.
The new (or “novel”) coronavirus is one of several known to infect humans. It’s probably been around for some time in animals. Sometimes, a virus in animals crosses over into people. That’s what scientists think happened here. So this virus isn’t new to the world, but it is new to humans. When scientists found out that it was making people sick in 2019, they named it as a novel coronavirus.
Human Coronavirus Types
Scientists have divided coronaviruses into four sub-groupings, called alpha, beta, gamma, and delta. Seven of these viruses can infect people:
MERS-CoV, a beta virus that causes Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS)
SARS-CoV, a beta virus that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)
SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19
