The world is struggling with a bad phase of coronavirus pandemic and here is a piece of good news, as Scripps Research reported that it may have found the coronavirus’ Achilles heel.

According to the San Diego Tribune, the research shows a specific area of the virus where it could be targeted with drugs and other medications and this finding could help us to lead towards the development of a vaccine for the coronavirus.

Ian Wilson, the chief biologist who leads the scientific team says “the targeted area is crucial to spreading the highly contagious virus and …. its composition suggests that it would be vulnerable to drugs.”

The discovery was published in the Journal Science on the past Friday and suggests that scientists are working for the vaccine of the COVID-19 on a global level. Researchers and scientists are working feverishly to find a vaccine for the virus whose pandemic caused more than 63,000 coronavirus deaths worldwide and affected around a million people in total.

“That high degree of similarity implies that the site has an important function that would be lost if it mutated significantly,” Scripps Research said in a statement Friday.

“We found that this (spot) is usually hidden inside the virus, and only exposed when that part of the virus changes its structure, as it would in natural infection,” Wilson’s colleague, Meng Yuan, said in a statement.

The team of researchers or scientists are seeking for some survivors of COVID-19 who can donate some of their blood for the screening and testing of antibodies which helped them to fight against this invasive virus.
