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. Those with T cells that fight the common cold have success because the coronavirus is a type of cold.
