Could the common cold give children immunity against COVID? Our research offers clues

Why children are less likely to become severely ill with COVID compared with adults is not clear.

Others have suggested that it could be because of a difference in ACE2 receptors in children—ACE2 receptors being the route through which the virus enters our cells.
