A review of recently published scientific studies includes a detailed imaging analysis to determine how SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, reprograms infected cells.

In a Reuters roundup of some of the latest scientific studies on the novel coronavirus and efforts to find treatments and vaccines for Covid-19, common cold antibodies yield clues to Covid-19 behavior.

A lower supply of a certain type of immune cell in older people that is critical to fighting foreign invaders may help explain their vulnerability to severe Covid-19, scientists say. An antiseptic nasal spray containing povidone-iodine may help curb transmission of the new coronavirus, preliminary research suggests.
