      Swedish scientists work on a radical Covid-19 blocker involving alpacas

      Leading scientists in the prestigious Karolinska Institute in Stockholm are working on a pioneering treatment involving llamas and alpacas in the fight against Covid-19, news wires reported. After immunizing Tyson, a 12 year-old alpaca in Germany, with virus proteins, the team at the institute have isolated tiny antibodies, known as nanobodies, from his blood that bind to the same part of the virus as human antibodies and could block the infection.
