Thai Doctors "Cure" Coronavirus Patient Using Powerful AIDS Drugs

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


By Tyler Durden / ZeroHedge

A couple of days ago, ZeroHedge decided to highlight a string of tweets by respected epidemiologist Dr. Eric Feigl-Ding wherein he noted some unusual characteristics of the novel coronavirus (nCoV-2019) that has swept across nearly two dozen countries since emerging in the central Chinese city of Wuhan last year.

Scientists trying to trace the evolution of the virus in order to understand how to contain it using knowledge gleaned from previous coronavirus outbreaks (SARS and MERS among them) discovered something strange: Initially, researchers believed that they had found a string of genetic code that hasn’t been present in other coronavirus strains, but is similar to strains found in “the HIV-1 gp120 or HIV-1 Gag.”

Now, Dr. Feigl-Ding later pointed out that subsequent research confirmed that some similarities have, in fact, been found in other known coronavirus strains. The similarities are certainly interesting.

Let’s move now to the front lines of the outbreak, where doctors in Beijing and elsewhere in China have started using popular retrovirals commonly employed in the treatment of AIDS. So much so that the US and drug companies have reportedly upped shipments of the drugs to China to assist in containing the outbreak. Another unusual trait: the virus binds to the same receptors as HIV.

Some have suggested that these oddities indicate nCoV was possibly engineered by scientists working to create a powerful new bioweapon – though these claims have been ridiculed and dismissed out of hand by the mainstream press.

Offering some more evidence that this wasn’t just some fluke, a team of Thai doctors told the Bangkok Post that the use of anti-flu an AIDS drugs has been a huge success as the country with the largest number of infected patients tries to contain the outbreak within its own borders.

Two doctors from Rajavithi Hospital in Bangkok (Dr. Kriangsak Atipornwanich and Associate Professor Dr. Subsai Kongsangdao) decided to use oseltamivir, an anti-flu drug used to treat MERS along with lopinavir and ritonavir, two AIDS drugs that had been used with some success in Beijing, to treat a female patient whose condition was rapidly deteriorating. 

The patient was admitted to Hua Hin Hospital then transferred to Rajavithi Hospital on Jan. 29.

“We checked related information and found anti-flu drugs were effective on MERS so we combined both groups of medications,” he said. “After poor lab tests for 10 days, the test finally turned positive after 48 hours of administering the medications. The treatment, as well as the recovery, is fast.”

Doctors from the Thai Public Health Ministry also said at a briefing on Sunday that the number of patients in Thailand has climbed to 19.

So, the coronavirus responds to a combination of meds used to treat the flu and AIDS? If we were going to create a super frankenvirus, that’s where we’d probably start.

      Most reasonably well fed & nourished folk – as the following article in THE NEW YORK TIMES makes clear
      - have more to fear just from seasonal FLU – it will kill more than – the Chinese Coronavirus

      And a few days in bed with a few paracetamol usually sorts seasonal flu out.
      So Coronavirus is – a non event

      Read the real facts (New York Times)

      here IS NO PANIC – Just Snooze ON – thro’ all this Tripe & Balloney >>> FEAR PORN

      All Hype Propaganda & Balloney – Heres some 1st Feb >>> FACTS – From The New York Times

      How Bad Will the Coronavirus Outbreak Get?
      Here Are 6 Key Factors
      By Knvul Sheikh, Derek Watkins, Jin Wu and Mika GröndahlUpdated >>>> Feb. 1, 2020

      As the coronavirus outbreak continues to spread across China, a flurry of early research is drawing
      >>>> a clearer picture of how the pathogen behaves

      1. How contagious is the virus?
      It seems …..moderately infectious,…. similar to SARS. (YAWN)

      2. How deadly is the virus?
      It’s hard to know yet. But the fatality rate is probably …..less than 3 percent, >>> much less than SARS. (YAWN)

      3. How long does it take to show symptoms?
      Possibly between 2 to 14 days, allowing the illness to go undetected.
      4. How much have infected people traveled?
      The virus spread quickly because it started in a transportation hub.
      5. How effective will the response be?
      The W.H.O. has praised China’s efforts, but critics fear lockdown measures may not be enough.
      6. How long will it take to develop a vaccine?
      A vaccine is still a year away — at minimum.

      While the virus is a serious public health concern,…… the risk to most people outside China …..remains very low,(YAWN)
      …….and seasonal flu is a more immediate threat. (DOUBLE YAWN)

      How contagious is the virus?
      It seems ….. moderately infectious, … similar to SARS. (YAWN)

      The scale of an outbreak depends on how quickly and easily a virus is transmitted from person to person. While research has just begun, scientists have estimated that each person with the new coronavirus could infect somewhere between 1.5 and 3.5 people without effective containment measures.

      That would make the virus roughly as contagious as SARS, …….another coronavirus that circulated in China in 2003
      and was contained after
      it sickened >>>> JUST 8,098 people and >>>>> killed (ONLY) 774. (REALLY BIG YAWN)

      If each person infected with the new coronavirus infects two to three others, that ……may be enough to sustain… an outbreak (YAWN)

      How deadly is the virus?

      It’s hard to know yet. But the fatality rate is
      probably less than 3 percent, >>>> much less than SARS.

      “There’s still a lot of uncertainty about what this virus is like and what it is doing,” said Dr. Allison McGeer, an infectious disease specialist at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, who was at the frontlines of the Canadian response to SARS.

      Early indications suggest the fatality rate for this virus is >>>> considerably less >>>>>than another coronavirus, MERS, which kills about…….. one in three people …..who become infected,

      and SARS, which kills …….. about one in 10.
      All of the diseases appear to latch on to proteins on the surface of lung cells,
      - but MERS and SARS ……seem to be more destructive to lung tissue.

      (ABOVE KILLED 1 In 3 & 1 in 10 !!!)

      HERE COME DE REALLY BIG BIG YAWNS

      As of Jan. 31, fewer than >>>>> 1 in 40
      >>>> of the people with confirmed infections had died.

      AND >>> Many of those who died were….. older men….. with underlying health problems.

      Its a FEAR PORN HYPED PROPAGANDA STORM IN A TEA CUP ( AS ALWAYS – JUST MORE RINSE & REPEAT OF THE EBOLA & SWINE FLU REVIOUS FEAR PORN )
      PASS IT ON !!
