Topics: WUHAN CORONAVIRUS CHINA
Researchers have found that ACE2, a type of enzyme receptor for the SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV), also plays a key role in Wuhan coronavirus's interaction with human cells.
"We have developed some effective treatment plans based on successful experience and practices from fighting against SARS. The use of multiple life support measures has increased the success rate of treatment," Xinhua cited Zhong as saying.
According to Zhong, more clinical evidence is needed to prove the effect of drugs used in some individual cases and it takes time for the vaccine against the virus not yet developed to go into clinical application. ■
