Most diseases in the past came as a pathogen and left behind antigens throughout the human body after it was treated with a vaccine.

What comes off even more disturbing in this publication is that it shows that a handful of patients who are under intensive care unit (ICU) or who have been under admission for the duration of their illness developed a mutual infection from both harmful bacteria and fungi.
