Novira is developing capsid inhibitors that attack the shell protecting the virus’ genetic material.

If it works it would be great. that is like antibiotics or antifungals that destroy bacterial cell wall. This will bust the virus protecting shell  thus not letting the viral particles form a virus. And theoretically our immune system should be able to clear it.
