Doctors in Thailand combined the anti-flu drug oseltamivir with lopinavir and ritonavir, anti-virals used to treat HIV to cure a 71-year-old woman of coronavirus over a 48 hour period. Thailand’s Health ministry was awaiting research results to prove the findings. They have also stopped short of calling it a cure but it is a treatment. The person was sick for ten days and recovered and vastly improved after getting the treatment.
Thailand so far has detected 19 confirmed cases of the virus believed to have originated in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, which is under lockdown.
That is the second-highest number of cases outside of China, with Japan recording 20.
So far, eight patients in Thailand have recovered and returned home, while 11 remain in the hospital.
The drug cocktail could be used on all people who get hospitalized with a severe case of coronavirus.
Companies like Moderna are working on a vaccine against coronavirus. They hope to get a vaccine out for human trials within 80 days.
