COVID Booster: antibody cocktails, animal models and long COVID

Five things we learned about COVID-19 this week.

Two green sircles on a black background. The left circle is empty. The right circle is a brighter green and has white splodges scattered throughout
Left: In a previous study, Texas Biomed researches tried swapping out a viral gene with a gene for green fluorescent proteins, but that did not result in enough proteins being expressed. Right: In this study, they inserted the fluorescent protein gene next to the most expressed protein of SARS-CoV-2, and that worked very well. Each green spot is reporting one viral particle.
