Scientists at the University of Pennsylvania and the biotech firm Regeneron are working on a technology for the development of a nasal spray capable of preventing coronavirus. The scientists are investigating whether technology developed for gene therapy can be used to develop the nasal sprays. "The advantage of our approach is that you don't need a competent immune system for this to be effective," Project lead James Wilson said.
