The viruses are difficult to and they change very quickly so they can fight against new drugs. Until now, there has been no way to cold viruses, so we all have to every winter. However, scientists have developed a special molecule that could make colds a thing of the past. They tested the molecule and found that it the viruses that cause colds. The molecule stopped the viruses from working in the body.

The usual treatment for a common cold is to medicines or remedies for the different symptoms. We might take one thing for a sore throat and another thing for a runny nose or a fever. Different viruses can different symptoms. The researchers the new molecule could all symptoms from developing.
