    Unfortunate. Hopefully something effective and safe is found soon. Wash your dang hands until then.

    The payload of this virus is messenger RNA. That is found in living things like birds & bats, the kind of things the Chinese have eaten traditionally. This virus arose spontaneously when some animal died in an open air market.

    China is not our friend. I see no reason to trust the very people who spread this disease across the world.

    The way I heard it it is a combination of drugs that the Chinese recommended to the French,
    The French had a very limited study, but some success.
    There'''s drug combo to shorten coronavirus, French researchers say | Fox News
    The combination was hydroxychloroquine and the antibiotic azithromycin.
    In the abstract of their research study, researchers noted that patients showed a significant reduction of the viral carriage, six days after treatment with the two drugs began, and much lower average carrying duration, compared to untreated patients.

    Results from a controlled clinical trial from China on the use of hydroxy chloroquine as a treatment for Covid-19 have shown no significant differences in health outcomes between the control group and patients who received the experimental drug.
    ======================================
    Despite Trump's gut feelings, a recently completed clinical trial has shown that hydroxychloroquine is ineffective against the COVID-19 virus. This molecule is a less toxic version of the antimalarial drug chloroquine.

    A number of new antiviral drugs are under study & some have been used successfully in compassionate use settings with patients in bad shape. One target is the virus' protease enzyme. See Preliminary SARS-CoV-2 protease inhibitor shows efficacy in mice This enzyme is needed for viral replication & therefore its transmisability & toxicity.
    To paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of ineffectiveness are exaggerated. It seems the trial was not terribly controlled.

    Did chloroquine really fail a COVID-19 studyor was the trial ...

    5 hours ago - News recently emerged that hydroxychloroquinean anti-malaria drug highlighted by President Donald Trump as a promising coronavirus ...

    ". . . However, most patients in the study's control group were actually treated with other antiviral therapies at the same time, including AbbVies HIV combo med Kaletra and flu drug Arbidol. Most, but not all, patients in the hydroxychloroquine group were also treated with Arbidol. All patients got interferon-alpha.

    Those meds had already been added to China National Health Commissions COVID-19 treatment guidelines after showing some promise against the novel coronavirus. As a FiercePharma reader pointed out, If that is the case, and even one of them has some effect on the virus, then one cannot tell if hydroxychloroquine worked or not.. . . "
