Stem cells (unless pre-conditioned) would have no greater immunity to the virus than any other.

"An experimental monoclonal antibody cocktail made by Regeneron and hailed by President Donald Trump as a “cure” was tested on cells derived, long ago, from fetal tissue — research for which Trump’s own administration drastically slashed funding just last year.

Trump received an intravenous infusion of the antibodies from the drug company last week as part of his treatment for the illness."

...

"Cells from fetal tissue have been a part of medicine for decades as scientists have used them to study conditions like birth defects, Alzheimer's disease and AIDS, to name a few."

Three Covid-19 vaccine candidates that have received federal funding through the White House’s Operation Warp Speed have also used cells from fetal tissue in their research. AstraZeneca and Moderna both used the HEK293T cell line in early studies on their vaccines. Johnson & Johnson used a different cell line called PER.C6, also derived from fetal cells, to test its vaccine’s effectiveness against Covid-19."
