There are all kinds of new announcements made on a daily basis about potential treatments and viable vaccines for the novel coronavirus.

Earlier today, we revealed that there’s a possibility that the covid vaccine could be taken as a pill. Check out the latest reports about all this revealed by BBC.

BBC reported that chemist Ingemo Andersson’s team is hoping this tiny product could play a big role in the global fight against coronavirus, allowing people to take powdered versions of future vaccines at home.

“It’s easy and it’s really cheap to produce,” says Johan Waborg, CEO of the firm, which usually makes inhalers for patients with asthma.

Here’s what she continued and said:

“You just remove a little plastic slip and then the vaccine inhaler is activated and you just put it in your mouth, take a deep breath and inhale.”

New potential drug that could treat all coronaviruses

SciTechDaily just revealed that the possible emergence of vaccine-resistant SARS-CoV-2 variants, as well as novel coronaviruses, are now making finding treatments that work against all coronaviruses as important as ever.

Now, experts who reported their findings in ACS’ Journal of Proteome Research have analyzed viral proteins across 27 coronavirus species and thousands of samples from COVID-19 patients, and they managed to find highly conserved sequences that could make the best drug targets.

“The game-changer is that you could distribute the [powder] vaccine extremely easily without the cold chain, and it can be administered without the need for healthcare providers.”

This is what ISR’s founder, Ola Winquist, a professor of immunology at the Karolinska Institute, one of Sweden’s leading medical universities, recently said.
