The most promising strategies for defeating coronavirus: A review study (EurekAlert)

EurekAlert: The most promising strategies for defeating coronavirus: A review study. “In a new study in Frontiers in Microbiology, aimed at the research community but also comprehensible for non-specialists, experts from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill review possible strategies against dangerous coronaviruses – not only SARS-CoV-2 and its relatives such as SARS-Cov (causing Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, SARS) and MERS-Cov (causing Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, MERS), but also as yet unknown strains which will inevitably emerge in the future. They propose that the most promising approaches for fast progress are selected antivirals such as remdesivir, and gene therapy.”
