Study Finds Common Cold Could Boost COVID-19 Immunity

The common cold might help produce immunity against COVID-19, reports UPI.

This may even be true in people who have not been infected with the new coronavirus.

A study published Tuesday by the journal Science details the findings.

This immune response is likely a function of a phenomenon called "T cell memory." T cell memory could help explain why some people don't get as sick as others from COVID-19.
