It brings humanity closer to treating the disease: Israeli scientists get antibodies to coronavirus
Researchers from the Israel Institute of Biological Research in Ness Ziona were able to obtain antibodies to the coronavirus COVID-19. Writes about this Hromadske radio.
This discovery brings humanity closer to curing the disease. The institute noted that this is far from a vaccine, but finding antibodies is the first step towards vaccination, that is, the production of drugs for the epidemic can begin much earlier than expected.
Antibodies are reportedly obtained from blood samples taken from patients and animals that have recovered.
As of April 7, the number of people who became infected with coronavirus in the world amounted to 1, more than 347 thousand people recovered after infection. 803 277 people died from complications of coronavirus disease in the world, writes ZN.
