Here's a decent dollop of good news amidst a strange time: a new study has found that the human body builds a solid antiviral immune system response to COVID-19 after it's fought the virus off.

The study was carried out by researchers at La Jolla Institute for Immunology in California and shows promising results to assist vaccine development to fight COVID-19.

The study's findings are important as they'll help shape the understanding of how the body reacts and builds immunity to the virus, which researchers need in order to develop a vaccine.

All 20 patients observed in this study had a healthy T cell, which plays an integral role in the immune system, a response that assisted their body to produce antibodies.
