Well, here's the latest from Wall Street, as reported on Value Line:
Investors were pleased to learn that researchers in China, as well as a team in the U.K., may be on the cusp of finding a treatment for the Coronavirus. However, much progress will be needed, and the situation is still a major concern.
At the close of trading, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was ahead 483 points; the broader S&P 500 Index was up 37 points; and the NASDAQ was higher by 41 points.
China is using "Tradional Meds" to treat the coronavirus??? This could be dangerous.
Quote;- "China is advising doctors to consider mixing Western antiviral drugs with traditional Chinese medicine for the treatment of the coronavirus. But experts question the efficacy of Chinese remedies.
As it races to treat patients infected with the new coronavirus, the Chinese government is seeing potential in a cocktail of antiviral drugs. It is also recommending the Peaceful Palace Bovine Pill, a traditional Chinese medicine made with the gallstone of cattle, buffalo horn, jasmine and pearl.
There is no known cure for the coronavirus that has sickened 24,324 people and killed 490 in China. The countryâ€™s National Health Commission says doctors should try treating patients mainly with a combination of Western drugs used to treat HIV and fight viruses, depending on the severity of illness.
But the government is also looking at ways to supplement the treatment with remedies that are integral to its national identity â€” traditional Chinese medicine." nytimes.com/2020/02/05/world/asia/coronavirus-traditional-chinese-medicine.html
