Publication Detail
DLSU-AKI Policy Brief, Volume XIII, No. 6.: Recommending a patient-level study to confirm that BCG vaccination accounts for the relatively low COVID-19 mortality rate in the Philippines.

To determine whether antibodies against M. tuberculosis protects individuals against COVID 19, the author recommends the conduct of a patient-level study using Mantoux screening test to probe whether (1) there is a disproportionately high percentage of people with the antibodies against M. tuberculosis among those who test negative for COVID-19; and (2) there is a disproportionately low percentage of people with the antibodies against M. tuberculosis among those who are or have been in the ICU as severe positive cases of COVID 19. ?
