Concerns over new Covid-19 variants becoming resistant to antibodies are spurring interest in finding out more about the body’s own immune responses — both to vaccines and to natural infection — as future protection against the virus.  Scientists working in Abu Dhabi are hoping T-cells, which are a group of white blood cells that target and destroy cells as they become infected with viruses, can provide immunity against Covid-19.
