A United States physician said his organization is about three to four weeks from producing a therapeutic antibody to counter COVID-19, a novel coronaviral disorder. Glanville said that when his colleagues become modified, they will give the antibodies to the U.S. military before carrying out a clinical study this summer.
Glanville says he agrees that “social distancing” helps minimize the spread of the virus; however, medication is needed to fight the spread further.
Currently, the highly infectious COVID-19 disease is not screened or known to be treatable. US President Donald Trump said a day earlier that the ancient malaria drug had “very encouraging results” in the current epidemic.
The novel coronavirus, originating in Wuhan, China, has spread exponentially to the whole world and has infected thousands of people and sickened hundreds of thousands more. The WHO has proclaimed it to be a worldwide pandemic, it will kill thousands of thousands of people around the world.
