«Some develop a rapid immune response, while others need more time,» he pointed out, commenting on reports that some people’s tests at first showed no antibodies, TASS reports.

According to Gorelov, human T cells store information on past diseases throughout one's lifetime. «If we encounter the virus again, T cells send signals to B cells and those start to produce antibodies to neutralize the virus,» the expert explained.

T cells are the basis of human immune defenses. These white blood cells facilitate the production of antibodies and destroy viral cells. B memory cells, which are also part of response to infections, can persist in the body for years, producing antibodies in case they encounter a pathogen.
