Thought they said it was a symptom? Confusion everywhere What a beautiful lady!🌷 BEAUTIFUL FREEDOM AND PROSPERITY SERVED ICE COLD!! COUGHS SNEEZE AND LIBERATE!!!!!

Can a cold give you coronavirus immunity?A study led by scientists from Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore has found some forms of the common cold might help offer protection from Covid-19. A common cold IS a coronavirus. Its nothing new.. Stand on your head .stick fingers in your ears while drinking a pint of yoghurt.this works .trust me .I'm still here . Zzzzzzzzzz....

Common cold could protect you from coronavirus for up to 17yrs, scientists sayTHE common cold could protect you from coronavirus for up to 17 years, scientists say. Immunology experts claim that patients who previously had colds caused by viruses related to Covid-19 could ha… Please please please can a journalist raise at the evening's briefing the fact that we are all STILL waiting for the promised recovery figures from a few weeks ago

Coronavirus: Morning updateCalls to scrap 2m social distancing rule and no-deal Brexit worries Your morning coronavirus update ⬇️ I'm confused that clothes in shops have to be quarantined if touched, but anyone in supermarkets can manhandle the veg without question and put back down. It's all been done in haste wrongly. People have naturally closed the gap...it's human nature. Set it to 1m then we are back to normal. Just another couple of weeks... More patience, less patients. You Brits...are having as much fun as us...sorry..

UK backtracks on full EU border checks post-BrexitThe government will take a 'pragmatic and flexible approach' due to coronavirus, a source says. Confused . . . I thought you wanted them to be flexible? In negotiations, both sides are gong to have to move, and when the presure's on with negotiations, like at this stage, that's when it happens. Seems potentially reasonable, and it may just be a ploy anyway. Makes you laugh I mean a modern day race vote. Hate the refugees hate the migrants hate the foreigners. “We are full” “ISIS is coming”. All Vanished, Cali jungle vanished. Amazing isn’t it?

Reason hay fever is so bad this year - and it could be due to less car pollutionSome Brits including Good Morning Britain's Piers Morgan are mistaking hay fever symptoms for coronavirus - but an expert says allergy season will feel particularly severe due to lockdown

Coronavirus IS seasonal, suggest vibrant mapsA new study found that eight cities that had 'substantial' spread of coronavirus were all on a narrow band of latitude with similar cold temperatures and low levels of humidity. It doesn't matter anymore, get back to work So basically Scotland’s average weather temp all year round.... great 😑👍. Exx

immunity or may develop milder symptoms.The latest study was by scientists from Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore.or may develop milder symptoms.Here are five things you need to know about the coronavirus outbreak this Thursday morning.

Immunologist Professor Antonio Bertoletti and colleagues from Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore made the discovery after taking blood from 65 patients. Of these people, 24 had recovered from Covid-19, 23 had become ill from SARS and 18 had never been exposed to either SARS or the coronavirus. Immunity to virus could last up to 17 years, according to the research by experts. In particular, the scientists found that half of patients in the group with no exposure to either Covid-19 or SARS had "memory" T-cells which showed immune response to the animal betacoronaviruses, Covid-19 and SARS. In particular, the scientists found that half of patients in the group with no exposure to either Covid-19 or SARS had "memory" T-cells which showed immune response to the animal betacoronaviruses, Covid-19 and SARS. Betacoronaviruses, specifically OC43 and HKU1, cause common colds as well as severe chest infections in the oldest and youngest patients. IMMUNITY AFTER EXPOSURE They share many genetic features with the coronaviruses Covid-19, MERS and SARS, all of which jumped from animals to humans. However, the UK's chief medics advise against change.

These results suggested patients' immunity developed after exposure to common colds caused by betacoronavirus or possibly from other as yet unknown pathogens. These results suggested patients' immunity developed after exposure to common colds caused by betacoronavirus or possibly from other as yet unknown pathogens. Coronaviruses are believed to account for up to 30 per cent of all colds but it is not known specifically how many are caused by the betacoronavirus types. The scientists say immunity may be present for many years due to the body's T-cells from attacks by previous viruses with a similar genetic make-up – even among people who have had no known exposure to Covid-19 or SARS. T-cells - which differ from the B-cells that produce antibodies - provide another line of attack by targeting other infected cells.

Similar to antibodies, they are made in response to an infection - and remain afterwards. Further trials are needed to prove the protective effect of these cells against Covid-19 but experts say patients who recovered from the deadly lung virus SARS in 2003 show immune responses to key proteins found in Covid-19.

Our findings raise the possibility that infection with related viruses can protect from or modify the pathology caused by SARS-Cov-2 Researchers from Duke-NUS Medical School in Singapore The experts said: "These findings demonstrate that virus-specific memory T-cells induced by betacoronavirus infection are long-lasting, which supports the notion that Covid-19 patients would develop long-term T-cell immunity. "Our findings also raise the intriguing possibility that infection with related viruses can also protect from or modify the pathology caused by SARS-Cov-2 [the strain of coronavirus that causes Covid-19]."

The current UK terror threat level is"substantial", meaning an attack is likely, and the Met Police's Lucy D'Orsi urges the public to remain vigilant as restrictions ease and people return to public spaces.

They found that exposure to other coronaviruses - such as the common cold or flu - had somehow primed patients' T cells to recognise and attack Covid-19. It's promising news for vaccine developers because it is "consistent with normal, good, antiviral immunity," according to Shane Crotty, from the Center for Infectious Disease and Vaccine Research at LJI. He said: "The types of immune responses targeted by many candidate vaccines are now shown to be the types of immune responses seen in Covid-19 cases that successfully recovered from the disease."
