Brief Answer:
Neutrophils

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

High number of neutrophils and lymphocytes happens during an infection. Chemotactic agents are generated that attract them to the site of infection, which in turn play a critical role in killing microorganisms.

You may have not any symptoms from some viral or bacterial infection.

Hope I have answered your query.
