A cold-cold virus that occurs during the cold can cross the umbilical cord of women and also infect the fetus. According to a recent research, the virus can also reach the unborn child in case of a cold and cold.

The umbilical cord acts like a sentinel:

Researchers at Tulane University, USA, said that the umbilical cord acts like a sentinel during pregnancy and nourishes the baby And oxygen reaches. Also prevents bacteria from reaching the child and helps in its development. The umbilical cord connects the baby to the mother’s body. Research published in the magazine Ploce One stated that the umbilical cord was not previously believed to be infiltrated, but recent research suggests that the Zika virus is infecting the umbilical cord of the umbilical cord. Researcher Giovanni Piedmatkala has proved for the first time that research has shown that even after a common cold and cold, the cord can be accepted, including that if a pregnant woman has a common cold, the virus can reach the mother as well as the fetus. Can also reach and infect it before birth.

Tested on the umbilical cord:

Researchers extracted three major cells from the donated umbilical cord. These cells are cytotrophoblast, stroma fibroblast, and hofabrocytes. Researchers in the lab exposed these cells to respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). This virus causes a common cold. They found that cytotrophoblast

The cells managed to stop the virus, but stroma fibroblasts and hofaburic cells were found to be at greater risk of becoming infected with the virus. Researchers said that hofaburocytes gave the virus a chance to spread inside itself. Since these cells pass through the umbilical cord to the embryo, researchers believe it may cause the virus to reach the embryo. These cells do not die after being infected with the virus. The virus invades the lungs of the fetus and infects them.


Role of cord


The umbilical cord is an integral part of the woman’s body, which serves to protect and nourish the baby during pregnancy. The child survives in the mother’s womb with the help of this. A pregnant woman attaches to her child through this placenta. It works to protect the child from many types of infections.
