Coronavirus: Australian researchers may have found a CURE

Researchers at the University of Queensland in Australia hope to start human trials by the end of this month to see if the coronavirus can be stopped by drugs made for HIV and malaria.

Have they found a cure for the coronavirus? Australian researchers claim two existing drugs could ‘cure’ COVID-19 after patients they tested responded ‘very well’ to treatment

  • Researchers believe they’ve found a cure for the latest strain of coronavirus
  • The disease has killed more than 6,500 people around the world since January
  • Queensland researcher claims HIV and anti-malaria drugs may be the cure

The HIV drug Kaletra has shown promising results in the small number of coronavirus patients who have been treated with it, scientists say – they now want to start proper clinical trials
