Coronavirus Cure might be the biggest challenge around the world, when doctors are working day and night to find the cure of the dread virus that has taken thousands of lives since November 2019.
Amid the outbreak, a doctor from United States of America claims to find the cure for the potential disease.
A US doctor Jacob Glanville, who operates Distributed Bio, a San Francisco biotechnology group, tweeted that a new antibody therapy, which works by blocking the coronavirus from infecting human cells, is a potential cure for the deadly bug that has swept the globe.
Anti-#COVID19 #therapeutic update. After 9 weeks we have generated extremely potent picomolar antibodies that block known #neutralizing #ACE2 #epitopes, blocking the novel #coronavirus from infecting human cells. Read more at https://t.co/Fht9buIZkU. pic.twitter.com/2v7NMk7kyZ

On the other hand Australian government scientists have begun the first stages of testing for a potential vaccine against the coronavirus.
Australia’s national science agency, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), said Thursday (April 2) that testing is underway at its bio security facility to find the Coronavirus Cure.
Testing is being done in cooperation with the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), a global group whose mission is to speedily develop vaccines against emerging infectious diseases.
CSIRO will initially test two vaccine candidates that were developed by the University of Oxford and American biotechnology company Inovio Pharmaceuticals, the site reported. The candidates were identified by CEPI in consultation with the World Health Organization.
“Beginning vaccine candidate testing at CSIRO is a critical milestone in the fight against COVID-19, made possible by collaboration both within Australia and across the globe,” CSIRO Chief Executive Dr Larry Marshall said in a statement.
“We will keep working until this viral enemy is defeated.”
