In 10 seconds? Researchers have identified 5 key molecules of the novel coronavirus that are responsible for causing damage to the blood vessels in patients, putting them at risk of heart attack and stroke.
Fine, but what can we do with these molecules? Scientists are hoping that these key molecules could be used to come up with new drugs to reduce the damage caused to blood vessels. Although, the process of developing new drugs is very long. Hence, significant research has been done to “repurpose” currently available drugs on the market for Covid-19 (more below).
