The development of the anti-coronavirus drug is based, inter alia, on research and knowledge of the structure of viruses. Pavel Plevka from CEITEC Masaryk University, a virologist and research group leader, has commented on the current situation at ČT24.

One of the weaknesses of coronaviruses is that they are viruses whose particles are coated with a membrane, and are therefore generally very sensitive to disinfectants.
It is therefore necessary to wash your hands frequently while using a protective skin cream on your hands to prevent damage to your hands.
He also recommends reducing travel on public transport and participation in larger social events.
There is also hope that in drier and warmer weather, coronavirus will spread less effectively.
