Study Finds Common Cold Could Boost COVID-19 Immunity
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.
