Virus mutated 50 times in his body: Man dies after 613 days of Corona

The Dutchman’s case sounds dramatic. The 72-year-old suffered from Corona for a total of 613 days. This is reported by “Bild”. Accordingly, the virus kept mutating in the man’s body.

But according to the report, the man also had other illnesses. The Dutchman suffered from a “bone marrow disease that affected his stem cells and red blood cells”. He also had leukemia.

Dutchman dies after 613 days of Corona

The pensioner from the Netherlands was already infected with the Omicron variant BA.1.17 in February 2022. He was taken to the University Hospital Amsterdam and treated there. He then died in the fall of 2023 from an “underlying illness,” as “Bild” writes. Added to this was his weakened immune system. The case is now becoming public because researchers want to present it at a congress in Barcelona, ​​Spain.

Corona virus mutated 50 times in the man’s body

According to the report, when he was admitted to the clinic, the man received several Covid vaccines. But his body did not respond to the antibody treatment. Just 21 days after receiving the drug “Sotrovimab”, the virus adapted to the active ingredient in order to fight it off, a so-called “resistance mutation”.

Due to his previously mentioned other illnesses, he was forced to take immunosuppressants. These weakened the immune system so that it could not produce antibodies against the virus.

What eventually happened was that the virus mutated up to 50 times. The case shows an example of what the virus is capable of if it stays in the body for too long and can reproduce again and again, “Bild” continues.
