Schools do not play a significant role in the spread of Covid-19 in the population -- this is the result of the study carried out by the epidemiologists of the University of Warwick, in Great Britain. See also EUROPA PRESS. (Feb 21)
Researchers have detailed a mechanism in the distinctive crown of SARS-CoV-2 that could help scientists quickly find new treatments for the virus and quickly test whether existing treatments are likely to work with mutated versions as they are developed. The team, led by the University of Warwick, in the United Kingdom, as part of the EUTOPIA community of European universities, has simulated movements in almost 300 protein structures of the spike protein of the Covid-19 virus using computational modeling techniques, in an effort to help identify promising drug targets against the virus.
