Cold infections could help stave off coronavirus infections – study – The Jerusalem Post

Scottish researchers have found that antibodies accumulated during the common cold can serve as a level of protection against the novel coronavirus.

Research performed by the University of Glasgow creates an argument that the human rhinovirus “triggers an innate immune response” that blocks coronavirus replication in the respiratory tract, the university said.

Previous research has shown that when human rhinovirus infections come into contact with other respiratory viruses, the “type and severity” are generally affected, normally in the virus’ ability to spread.Source: Cold infections could help stave off coronavirus infections – study – The Jerusalem Post
