Targeting cellular response to SARS-CoV-2 holds promise as new way to fight infection

(University of Cambridge) A new treatment approach focused on fixing cell damage, rather than fighting the virus directly, is effective against SARS-CoV-2 in lab models. Combination of two drugs reduces spread of SARS-CoV-2 infection in cells by up to 99.5%.If found safe for human use, this anti-viral treatment would make COVID-19 symptoms milder and speed up recovery times.
