[COVID -19] What You NEED to Know About the Common Cold!
There’s a lot we don’t know about COVID-19.
But every day brings a new study that sheds more light on the subject.
Like who is most at risk, common denominators between those infected, and how to avoid getting sick.
And today, I came across a study published in mBio that revealed a shocking connection between having the common cold… and contracting COVID-19.
Here’s everything you need to know.
COVID-19 is a type of coronavirus. This is a large family of viruses that includes everything from the common cold to more serious infections like MERS and SARS.
Researchers have found that having the common cold could potentially provide some protection against COVID-19.
The reason is because of how your immune system identifies invaders—and the steps it takes to protect your body from ANOTHER attack.
You see, when you contract the common cold, your body produces memory B cells that do three things:
- Detect pathogens
- Create antibodies to destroy them
- Remember the same pathogen in the future.
Number three is especially important because it means that if the same pathogen tries to get into your body again in the future, the B cells will recognize it faster—often clearing your body of the infection before it can even start.
Researchers studied blood samples of people who had had COVID-19, and compared them to blood samples of people collected long before people could have been exposed to COVID-19.
They found that both groups had pre-existing memory B cells that recognized SARS-CoV-2, which sprang into action to attack it.
This could tell us two VERY important things.
First, it could mean that anyone who has had the common cold could have some level of protection against COVID-19.
Second, it could mean that if you’ve already had COVID-19, you could potentially be protected from getting it again for a long period.
More testing is needed to determine this and also if these pre-existing memory B cells can help shorten the duration or severity of COVID-19. But these preliminary results are very encouraging.
And with COVID-19, I’ll take all the good news I can get.
