Maybe they could use this CRISPR technology to attack and disable the virus. The virus must have a weak point in its genome and if it's an RNA-based genome, then it seems that it could be attacked without risking human DNA-based genome damage. Just a thought from someone who hasn't taken a biology class in decades! LOL
