WATCH: This video of an immune cell chasing bacteria will blow your mind

After years of pandemic lockdown and discussion on immune systems we’re all a little more interested in how our body fights off infection.

Maybe that’s why this viral video has racked up 11 million views already – or maybe its the thrill of seeing the game of hunt and destroy that happens every day in our bodies as our immune cells fight to protect us.

This video is an animation but its based on an equally intriguing video of a neutrophil chasing Staphylococcus aureus – which was captured by David Rogers of Vanderbilt University.

While this video gives more detail to explain what’s happening.

It’s fascinating stuff.
