Thailand Doctors Invent a New Medicine for treating the novel Coronavirus

Thailand Doctors Invent a New Medicine for treating the novel Coronavirus”

"From being exhausted before, [the patient] could sit up in bed 12 hours later", AFP reported.

Thailand's Health Minister, Anutin Charnvirakul, was seen in a video released on Sunday visiting one of the patients who had recovered from the virus.

The patient, who is 71 years old tested negative for Coronavirus infection, almost 48 hours after the first dose of the combination medicines were given to her.

Kaletra is already being studied in a randomised, controlled trial - the gold standard for testing new medical products - in coronavirus patients in Wuhan, China, where the outbreak began.

The Thai doctors administered the flu drug because of research indicating that it helped some patients afflicted with a more-deadly coronavirus that causes Middle East respiratory syndrome, or Mers. "The lab result of positive on the coronavirus turned negative in 48 hours", Kriengsak said.

Cocktail of flu HIV drugs appears to help fight virus

The other person who has tested positive for the virus is a 38-year-old woman who had been the travelling companion of the man who died.

The HIV medicines lopinavir and ritonavir, which are sold by AbbVie Inc.as the product Kaletra, was used on three patients in conjunction with the anti-flu medication oseltamivir, sold by Roche Holding AG and Chugai Pharmaceutical Co.as Tamiflu, Somkiat Lalitwongsa, director of the Rajavithi Hospital in Bangkok told reporters on Monday. Thailand's government is also battling public criticism that it has been slow to evacuate scores of its citizens from Hubei province, at the center of the outbreak.

Lung specialist Dr. Kriangska Atipornwanich states that this approach is not a cure for the Corona virus, but it quickly improves the patients' condition. 'The patient was stable and showed signs of improvement, however, his condition deteriorated within his last 24 hours resulting in his demise, ' the health department said.

Thailand has so far recorded 19 cases of coronavirus, Reuters reports, making it the country with the greatest number of infections in Southeast Asia. 8 of these patients have been cured in 14 days and sent to their homes. 11 people are still under treatment. If this medicine is successful in laboratory tests, then it may be considered as the first successful medicine of coronavirus.
