Chinese scientists may have found an effective treatment for Covid-19
Scientists at Peking University in Beijing have developed a new drug they believe will stop the Covid-19 pandemic in its tracks.
The drug seems to shorten recovery times and give immunity from the novel coronavirus.
The drug has successfully passed the animal testing stage.
To produce the drug, scientists use antibodies, harvested from the blood of people who have recovered from Covid-19.
Clinical trials will commence shortly.
Peking University consistently ranks as Asia’s top academic institution.
It is the world’s 22nd-best university, according to the 2020 QS World University Rankings.
