Antibodies From a Llama Named Winter Could Help Scientists Find a Treatment For COVID-19

The hunt for an effective treatment for COVID-19 has led one team of researchers to find an improbable ally for their work: According to US and Belgian scientists, a four-year-old llama named Winter who lives in a secret location in Belgium could hold the key to a cure and help scientists find a treatment for COVID-19. The team — from The University of Texas at Austin, the National Institutes of Health and Ghent University in Belgium — reports their findings of a potential avenue for a coronavirus treatment involving llamas on May 5 in the journal Cell.

Son Requested Cat Pics To Cheer Up His 96-Year-Old Mother In Isolation

This is some Grade-A wholesomeness right here! Seriously, it's doesn't get more wholesome than this. 

Bob Hayes revealed on Twitter that his 96-year-old mother has been diagnosed with Covid-19 and is quarantined in her nursing house. And in a beautiful and heart-filled effort to keep his mother's spirit up, he turned to Twitter. 

Hayes' mother loves cats, he reveals, and has kindly requested users to share images of their cats so he can print them out and hang the images up on his mother's nursing home window. 

We're sure he wasn't expecting the plethora of images that followed but we can only hope this spread endless cheer to his mother. 

The ICH team is wishing Hayes' mother a quick and speedy recovery!
