Description

Dig into the two main ways we fight the viruses that cause the common cold, and find out if its possible to create a cure.

--

On average, adults catch more than 150 colds throughout their lives. Even with similar symptoms, the cause could be different each time. Common colds are caused by at least 8 different families of virus, each of which can have its own subtypes. How can so many different viruses cause the same illness? And is a cure even possible? Explore the two main strategies we employ to fight viruses.

Directed by Anton Bogaty.
