why can't we block ACE- 2 receptors in the affected patients then the coronavirus will not be able to bind with it and will not cause further damage .
Can't the complications that will arise from blocking the receptors overcome by other drugs?

Dear Dr. Garima, Experts believe that treatments targeting ACE2 could be the key to unlocking either a coronavirus vaccine or a treatment for Covid-19. The work targeting the receptor is one pathway among dozens that biotech and pharmaceutical companies are exploring as they race to find drugs that could help bring the pandemic under control.
