Scientists have identified a tiny particle in the llama's body that could potentially be effective in preventing the coronavirus, according to the news agency.

According to experts, antibodies in the llama's body can block the passage of the corona virus.

The findings were published in the journal Cell by experts from the University of Texas and VIBU Giant Center for Medical Biotechnology.

The research report states that experts began searching for antibodies against the SARS and MERS viruses in 2003 and 2012.

"We started this work in 2016 as a side project, and we thought it would be interesting over time. It has become important.

Experts gave Lama a safe strain of the SARS and MERS virus, after which blood samples were taken from him.

A Belgian research team has identified fragments of small antibodies found in llamas, known in medical parlance as nanobodies.

Research has shown that since the coronavirus is a variant of the SARS and MERS viruses, antibodies to the llama can be used to treat it.
