How will the pandemic end?

The researchers discovered new, previously unknown sites for the cleavage of many viral proteins including the S (“spike”) and N (nucleocapsid protein) major antigens, which are major targets of antibodies and vaccines, both in existence and in development.

The researchers used the method of mass spectrometry analysis, during infection with the emerging coronavirus, during their study of protein fission processes, according to phys.org.

On the other hand, scientists from the Medical University of Vienna discovered that the emerging coronavirus creates a unique response to the immune system. The results of their work have been published in Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology.

And the researchers discovered, a certain set of immune indicators in the blood of people with “Covid-19”, by which they can distinguish between infection with the coronavirus and other viral respiratory diseases.
