(TNS) Thanks to the last viral epidemic China gave to the world, scientists think they may have discovered a way to successfully treat victims of the current pandemic involving COVID-19.



As reported by the UK’s Daily Mail, researchers believe they have found coronavirus’ “Achilles heel” that may lead to faster treatment of victims and even a vaccine.



The news site noted:

A study used an antibody from a SARS survivor and tracked how it latched on to a specific area of the SARS virus in order to kill it.

The team at Scripps Research then observed how the SARS antibody gripped on to the same spot on the COVID-19 coronavirus sample.

This spot of weakness could can be targeted with drugs and guide the development of a vaccine.

Now researchers are seeking former coronavirus patients who have recovered and are willing to donate blood to screen for antibodies.
