Poor countries have less sanitation, but also less tourism, fewer introductions of infected cases and less mobility, which are the main determinants of COVID spread. Did you consider that confounding?

Has anyone looked at helminths in childhood and Autism Spectrum Disorder?

Thank you so much for speaking today as this had been extremely informative and intriguing. (I am not extremely familiar with this topic) Is there research supporting this idea in Lupus patients?
