Which lung cells are to coronavirus infection are doubtful

Scientists for the treatment of COVID-19 have identified which lung and bronchi cells are targets for novel coronavirus infections, which may aid the development of novel drug candidates for treatment.

Scientists have discovered that the receptor for the virus is abundantly expressed in the progenitor cells of the respiratory system, with mucus from the lungs and hair-like projections to flush out bacteria.
Researchers, including researchers from the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH) in Germany, have analyzed samples from twelve lung cancer patients obtained from the Heidelberg lung biobank in Germany.
