Thailand claims remedy for the coronavirus infection has been found. They have been reported to have cured a coronavirus infected patient within 48 hours using a combination of some anti-viral drugs.

In a statement, the health ministry said a 71-year-old Chinese woman suffering from coronavirus was receiving a mixture of antiviral drugs used to treat influenza and HIV. They said the drug had been successful to cure her within just seven 48 hours of delivering the drug.

In a statement given to journalists, a Bangkok hospital physician Dr. Krijansak Attipornanich said, “I have treated a serious patient, and the results are satisfactory. The condition of the patient improved within just 12 hours of treatment. The patient, who was completely devastated, woke up after 12 hours. The results of the coronavirus infection positive goes negative within just 48 hours.

He also said that they used a combination of anti-flu medication Oseltamivir and Lopinavir and ritonavir used in the treatment of HIV. He said the country's health ministry is waiting for a research report to find out if this method will be used again.

Earlier, hospitals in Beijing also reported the use of HIV drugs in the treatment of coronavirus patients. It is not yet certain whether they were successful.
