Scientists have discovered an unexpected way to protect against COVID-19

A group of researchers from Yale University found that the common cold can protect a person from COVID-19.

According to experts, the virus that provokes cold triggers an immune response in the patient, which can prevent infection with the coronavirus. This discovery could be a starting point for finding more effective ways to treat COVID-19.

The immune response is an interferon-stimulated gene that reacts at an early stage of the disease and prevents the virus from multiplying in the body. Researchers have previously found that boosting immunity as a result of a cold can protect a person from the flu, so scientists began looking for a similar way to fight COVID-19.
