NCSU, UNC researchers think they have found a way to treat COVID-19 with a nasal spray

Researchers at North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill have performed successful studies on a nasal spray that can potentially help treat COVID-19.

The researchers developed cells that are very similar to a type of cell found in the lungs. Using a nasal spray device, the user can inhale those mimicking cells. When the virus that causes COVID-19, known as SARS-CoV-2, enters the body, it is overwhelmed by the fake cells and cannot find the real lung cells.

When the virus binds to the surfaces of the fake cells, it is not able to infect them, replicate itself and then go infect other cells. The body’s immune system is able to clear the virus as it sits idly on the fake cells.
