    I was reading about this one this morning: -

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-55639096

    A new treatment involving the patient inhaling interferon beta via a nebuliser that provokes a strong immune response in the lungs. This can prevent them from developing more serious symptoms after being infected. It's still in trials but sounds promising.

    I think its only a matter of time before a really effective treatment is discovered. I just hope its sooner rather than later.

    The problem is it is ALREADY later, with deaths in the US closing in on a half MILLION.

    I believe this medicine, ivermectin, is a serious option for the underpriviledged.
    Its widely available, and not so expensive.
    FDA has approved it for humans, but I suppose its dose should be carefully measured.

    They mentioned a dose level of 5 micro M. Any idea what that is? Micro Mole? I don't see how to convert that to microliters or cubic millimeters or picometers, whatever?.

    I suppose it's micrometers as opposed to millimeters.
    That's one thousandth of a millimeter?
    Maybe my math is wrong. 🙄

    Some medications are prescribed and administered in microlitres.
