Decoy can deceive COVID-19, keeping people safe from infection



The coronavirus that causes COVID-19 to infect cells by plugging into a receptor on their surface. Now, by fabricating a “decoy” of that receptor, scientists aim to stop the virus from attacking.

In a new study, published August 4 in the journal Science, researchers have designed such a decoy and found that Coronavirus binds tightly to the spoof receptor, and once attached, the virus is unable to infect the primate cells in a lab dish. The lure binds closely with the virus as a neutralizer antibody, a Y-shaped molecule is produced by immune system to take the virus and prevent it from infecting cells.
