3-drug combo combats COVID-19

The research was published in The Lancet on May 8th, 2020. 127 participants were recruited from six hospitals in Hong Kong and China. Each individual was tested for SARS-CoV-2 and all had positive results. A 14-day treatment plan was issued with a regimen in place for all patients. Each patient in the combination group was given various amounts of lopinavir, ritonavir, and ribavirin ever 12 hours, as well as getting 8 million international units of interferon beta-1b on selected days.

The average time it took to clear the virus from the combination group took only 7 days. Lead researcher Prof. Kwok-Yung Yuen stated these trials demonstrate treatment for only mild-to-moderate cases of COVID-19. This is a major breakthrough in treating COVID-19 and points to a potential cure.
