    Just don’t think any ‘cure’ is going to become available in the next few months…

  4. And we are just hearing about this today?

    • @Joshua Foster “Legit news article”, lol! This is from Nature Medicine one of the most respected science magazines. Read the paper, you will understand even you are not trained in the field.

      ​@harbin guy I read some of it. This virus was first discovered in 1960 ya different strains but I think we lucked there is a strain that has a 30% mortality rate.

    • Researchers from Queensland university in Australia have actually found a cure and will be running trials within weeks. HIV and Anti-malaria drugs have wiped out virus in test tube. These drugs wouldn’t need FDA approval because they should already be on shelves.

    • Will China already was using this treatment long before Australia. Don’t know why they are trying to steal the credit. You can look up their scientific studies with dates on them. The fact that China stabilized their numbers first shows us they came up with treatment first.

    • Brad Smith: yeah that’s interesting if true. Thanks 👍 Yep, just seen an article on this dated 11th February.

  5. Politicians wasted a trillion and half on political adds.

      yep, that little fact made me sick years before this pandemic was even a sparkle in Bill Gates and Rockefellers eyes…

    • @Nicole Jessica And that 90% money of filthy rich comes from your money or hard work. From underpaid jobs, inflated prices that consumer pays in a market with cronyism and tax evasion, taking govt. for a ride. Haven’t you heard of GAFA tax imposed by France

  6. Vitamin C and the Sun, Gods medicine

  7. Can you please hurry up please (I’m not infected I just want people to be safe/saved)

    • George Washington | March 17, 2020 at 7:45 PM | Reply

      Thats not how vaccine development works, plus it has to be approved by the FDA first which will take atleast a year and a half…

    • @Uriel Salas Dont need to pray when we know God. See what science does for you in 100 years

    • Wow these comments are insane people act like you cant believe in God and pray for a “drug” as yall say that could save alot of lifes..

    • @Khalil Shariff god wont instantly cure the entire global population (neither will vaccines because of course that takes time but still lmfao),

    • Anthony Vasquez | March 19, 2020 at 8:41 PM | Reply

      God bless us all 🙏

      They are looking for ways to make money off of this pandemic. All about money!

      70 years ago it was discovered during research and testing of human breast milk that monolaurin the active ingredient in breast milk strips the lipid coating off the virus preventing it from replicating

    That lady stood still ASF for like 3 mins tripped me out


    • If you believe in the Biblical god, he created everything – including all the deadly viruses. Your “god bless” comment doesn’t make sense.

      It failed..

    • @Josef H. God didn’t create the virus..bill gates did. God allowed it to happen to see which people follow and believe what media tell them and which ones use their brains to wake up. Bill gates owns coronovirus. They sent it out themselves.

    • No Bill Gates did not create the virus the animals were carrying it, and the way china was cooking and killing and touching the animals gave it too people.

    Is the coronavirus virus technically saving lives because it has stopped school shootings?

  14. Everyone on the W.H.O board is guilty of murder.

    A more complete list of guilty people are those who attended the Event 201 forum.

    What utterly useless interview questions. 😖 I know middle school kids who could have run a better and more informative interview. Not one question about how effective the drugs in trial were in their animal phase, not one question about time tables on how long human trials will last and what options are available to broaden and expedite them. Not one question about how long it would take to mass produce them if/when they pass human trials. Nothing.

    We need better f*@king journalism than this, esp when it involves matters of global catastrophic import !

    -1 😏

  19. The coronavirus has a New sympton

  20. “Gilead Scientific”…follow the $$$. Baric is a dangerous man.
