Scientists in the US have found a potential treatment for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19. The study, published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, has found that small molecule protease inhibitors show potency against human coronaviruses. These coronavirus 3C-like proteases, known as 3CLpro, are strong therapeutic targets because they play vital roles in coronavirus replication, the researchers said.
