This information was shared through a briefing by the Ministry of Health on Sunday. The Health Ministry stated that the doctors treated a Chinese woman affected by Coronavirus with this cocktail and her condition improved.

The HIV medicines lopinavir and ritonavir mixed with anti-flu medication oseltamivir and this mixture of medicine was used on three patients in Thailand,
stated the director of the Rajavithi Hospital in Bangkok.

The medicines were given to a 71 year old patient for 48 hours and she recovered dramatically. She was treated by Dr.Kriangsak Atipornwanich, a doctor at Rajavithi Hospital in Bangkok. The government of Thailand has sent the medicine for further tests. If the tests prove to be positive, it will be the first ever medicine for the Coronavirus infection.

A successful medication is the need of the hour as the disease is likely to be declared a pandemic very soon. Coronavirus has now spread to more continents as per a report in the New York Times . There have been more than 17000 confirmed cases of Coronavirus infections in a minimum of 23 countries globally. Experts expect somewhere close to 100,000 more cases in the days to come.
