Does The Common Cold Protect Against COVID?

Over the past two years, it has been a common occurrence: One or more family members become ill with COVID-19 while another family member remains perfectly healthy. The test results are negative. He or she didn’t contract the virus and didn’t become sick.

British research has now revealed the reason for this: these people are immune to certain types of the common cold.

Published Research by Imperial College London concludes that the presence of T cells induced from a ‘coronavirus chill’ can lower the risk of being infected with the virus.

Professor Ajit Lalvani, a senior researcher, explains that “our study provides the clearest evidence to date that T cell-induced common cold coronaviruses act a protective role towards [COVID] infection.” These T cells protect the virus’ proteins, not its spike protein.

“Exposure to the SARS/CoV-2 virus does not always cause infection. We’ve been eager to find out why,” Dr. Rhia Kundu, Imperial’s National Heart, and Lung Institute say. “We discovered that Covid-19 infection can be prevented by high levels of T cells in the body, which are created when the body is infected with other coronaviruses, such as the common cold.

She continues to insist that this is not the case. Only People should use self-defense forms because not all “common colds” are also “coronaviruses.” Do The T cells that were created from a previous viral infection appear to be protected against various coronaviruses. China let loose on the world two years ago– Pardon me, I meant to say: The virus that just so happened in Wuhan, China reared its ugly head, and then it accidentally spread throughout the globe.

According to Dr. Lalvani, this would mean that future vaccines (oh yes, there are many to come!) should be developed using these “conserved internal proteins. These will work differently from current vaccines, which have lower than stellar results against omicron.

It seems logical that Spain would treat COVID as if it were the flu.
