And it's blood group immune response that, hypothetically, is going after the CORONA virus - like the "anti-A" but the study that talked about "A" being more susceptible didn't have enough B or AB in the cohort to make any claims. It would be an interesting adjunct.

As for whether plague is a virus or bacterium is beside the point: apparently they can determine the descendence.

Nature's full of overlaps: most insects that specialize do so because they've adapted to natural plant toxins and other insects haven't. They eat what the can - not because they prefer it but because it's what they can eat. Why do I say this. Because quite accidentally, these 'toxins' are also what give herbs, spices, vegetables, etc. their flavors. Yes- it's a bit of a peripheral topic but the point is that natural selection sometimes has side effects. Mammals may (or may not) be attracted to smells and tastes of evolved insect repellents and toxins.

Or better, cowpox gave immunity to smallpox for milk maids who caught it, and in fact helped Jenner launch the concept of vaccination.
