Useful informative post.

Right now, there are groups trying to come up with a vaccine that doesn't just protect against the next variant of SARS-2 but actually protects us against the sarbecoviruses in general.

The researchers found that the recombinant binding domain produced by Khosta-2 can bind to the human ACE2 receptor, which allows it to enter cells. The viral pseudotypes were also resistant to both the serum from individuals who were vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2 and the human monoclonal antibodies.
