Coffee lovers, this one's for you!

A new study suggests that having at least one cup of coffee a day is associated with a lower risk of COVID-19 infection.

According to ABC 7, Dr. Anthony Cardillo, an ER specialist and CEO of Mend Urgent Care in Los Angeles says that drinking a caffeinated cup a day can indeed boost an individual's immunity against the virus.

"It was a very interesting study. There (were) 40,000 participants, but really, it was a retrospective study looking from the years 2006-2010 and then trying to extrapolate the coffee consumption and if any people in that group then went on to get COVID," he told ABC 7.

"It did demonstrate some protective mechanism, but I wouldn't go around at this juncture stating that drinking coffee is protective against COVID. There (were) some protective elements but let's just keep it at that for now," he added.
