Hydroxychloroquine, antimalarial tablets, commonly sold under the brand name Plaquenil, were reported March 9 in Clinical Infectious Diseases journal to be effective at killing the coronavirus in laboratory experiments.
"Of the 20 test patients, six who were treated with both Plaquenil and the antibiotic azithromycin did even better, the team reported. Five of the six, or 83 percent, tested negative at day three. All six, 100 percent, tested negative at day six."
in a letter in Cell Discovery, Wednesday, the study’s authors, mainly from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Wuhan, wrote, “(W)e predict that the drug has a good potential to combat the disease.”
Repurposing established drugs, like Plaquenil , which was approved in 1955, may be a quick, safe and economical way to attack a new virus.

Archie Gemmill was the greatest and like nearly all of the footballers in Renfrewshire and, indeed, the rest of Britain, he was, of course, raised in Greater Portsmouth. 130's homework tonight is to produce a full list for us by tomorrow.

You can just imagine a normal person conducting research into this and also pretending a few footballers from Herefordshire and Shropshire were from Worcestershire whilst, all the while, keeping us updated on a daily basis.
Or perhaps not.

Harvard University epidemiologist Marc Lipsitch is predicting the coronavirus "will ultimately not be containable" and, within a year, will infect somewhere between 40 and 70 percent of the world's population.
If he is right, it's certainly possible that all major sporting events will be cancelled although matches could still possibly be played in empty stadiums, which is what they are going to do in Italy.
