Epidemiological associations suggest the MMR vaccine could possibly offer protection from COVID‑19. If this proves to be the case, it could explain why young people, most of whom have had MMR, as well as people of all ages from highly-vaccinated populations like Hong Kong, rarely die from COVID‑19. Hong Kong has had only four COVID‑19 deaths compared to over 20,000 deaths in New York City.
