Ever wonder why SARS-CoV-2 was so successful in infecting different people, even those who were otherwise healthy and had a robust immune system? Part of the reason could be the ability of the virus to dampen the anti-viral innate immune response by impairing the mechanism of interferon production in host cells. In collaboration with Tommy Alain's team at University of Ottawa, we wrote a mini-review that distills the latest findings on all the ingenious ways through which SARS-CoV-2 block interferon production in host cells.
