With Video, A Yale Team Visualizes Spread of COVID-19 in Mice

Using bioluminescent tagging and advanced microscopy, a team at the Yale School of Medicine can see the spread of COVID-19 in mice.

“For the first time, we were able to visualize the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 in a living animal in real time, and importantly, the sites at which antibodies need to exert effects to halt progression of infection,” said Priti Kumar, associate professor of infectious diseases  at Yale School of Medicine and a co-corresponding author of the paper.
