During the first year of the Wuhan Pandemic, my wife and I took part in a research study to see whether a 100-year-old vaccine for tuberculosis had any protective effect from the virus. We both got inoculated with the Bacillus Calmette-Guérin or ‘BCG’ vaccine, which was first used in the 1920s.
As I have shared with y’all before, both my wife and I are nurses, at a clinic and emergency room, respectively. During the pandemic, we each had daily contact while at work with multiple Wuhan Virus patients. We also had contact with people in our personal lives who shortly thereafter were diagnosed with the disease. Despite all these contacts, we never contracted the disease, or at least never had any symptoms. I was only tested for the virus once during this period and my wife was tested twice. All of the tests were negative.
