Google Translate: "What has just been discovered?
It was already known that the sialic acids surrounding the cells promote cell recognition, which makes it easier for viruses to identify their targets, but also that they facilitate the point of attachment of the virus and the infection of the cell.

The researchers have now identified a variant of the sialic acids that interacts more strongly with the virus's spike proteins than other sugars. In other words, "they have found the key with which the virus opens the door to the cells," explains the university.

The researchers then decided to trap the virus into its own trap by preventing it from attaching to its host. They blocked the attachment points of the S protein, thus suppressing any interaction with the cell surface. “If the virus can't attach to the cells, it can't get in and it dies. In this way infection is prevented”, according to UCLouvain. They added that this discovery has the advantage of working with every variant of the virus, regardless of mutations.

Hmmmm. Sounds extraordinary if they can make this work.

Interesting. I've discussed sialic acids with students when I've taught Cell Bio. But I'm wary about the claim that the virus could not mutate to select against their approach. If the sialic acids are binding to the spike protein, there could be mutations in the spike protein which don't bind these particular sialic acids as well.

Better airborne delivery from black helicopters.

You spray it to the inside of your mask and breath it for a couple of hours.

Wouldn't THAT be fun to watch play out.

No idea about this, but they do have the world's best chocolate, and beer.

I can attest to this. But, wait, are you suggesting that they are going to spike the chocolate and beer with virus-eradicating medication? Now that would be revolutionary.
