    Helper T cells detect the virus antigens on the infected cell and activate cytotoxic T cells. In cell-mediated immune response, antibodies are not involved. Cytotoxic T cell, natural killer cell and macrophage are involved, that is why this immune response is called "cell-mediated immune response". Also, the body has never encounter this virus so it is no way that you have memory T cell for this virus. You only get your memory T cell produced specifically for this virus after your immune system respond to the virus. Phagocyte don't insert antibodies. I hope this helps. Correct me if i'm wrong.
