Australian company “Anna Respiratory” announced today (Monday) that the nasal spray it has developed has significantly reduced the spread of the corona virus in animals. The spray is designed to improve the ability of a person’s immune system to deal with common colds and flu. The company now claims that according to an experiment it conducted on ferrets, the spray should also have the ability to deal with the corona virus. The company further added that the spray can be given alongside receiving a vaccine.

In the study, the company showed that the INNA-051 spray reduced the rate of corona in ferrets by 96%. The study was conducted by the British government agency Public Health England. The company also said they would be willing to test the spray in human trials in less than four months, subject to the success of further research in the field and appropriate regulatory approval.
Many investors around the world seem convinced that this is a breakthrough, as the company has already raised $ 8.24 million to develop the spray. Investors include venture capital firm Brandon Capital Ltd, the Australian Government, various pension funds and biotechnology giant CSL Ltd CSL.AX.
The Australian company’s announcement comes in the shadow of the global race for the development of the corona vaccine. Australia has entered into agreements with several pharmaceutical companies that invest billions in vaccine development to ensure the purchase of potential vaccines.
