They drew on data previously collated to fight the SARS-CoV virus, which caused the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) outbreak in 2003. The method is restricted to data the sparsity of which is block-wise structure, but allows to identify in practice the correct number of blocks to be selected. According to the HKUST, “Scientists have been drawing on previous data and knowledge of the SARS virus in search of a way to crack SARS-CoV-2.” Matthew McKay, associate professor in HKUST’s department of electronic and computer engineering.
