“Every single  body is important we want to save everyone.”

Researcher should find the types of cell in nose of mouse and nose of humans!!! We should find that different types and try to isolate them, we should find that particular cell in human nose  which supports the entry of deadly corona virus.

(as we know virus does not enter via skin though it can live on skin for 9 hours so we should use that particular cell for the hotspot through which corona enters human body)

Nirali,  you have a very interesting approach to isolating the cells with ACE2 receptors!  

The most common entry is as you say respiratory path.  Hence the non-pharmaceutical intervention is face mask, social distancing and hand washing.  I hope that you have made a habit of it, have you?   That aside, encourage your family and friends to do the same vigilantly.  

From the little that I know about our body’s defense system, both innate and adaptive, scientists and researchers developed vaccines to help our bodily defense system to be more effective in detecting the virus, destroying it or mitigating its harm.  I assume that you know that there are several vaccines for SARS-CoV-2 in phase III trial.  Many more are in phase II and in phase I trial.  I am confident that with so many being tested, a few will be ready and available in 2021.

Meanwhile, do develop your idea further and share details for discussion.
