Return to Expert Center
Is there anything in your interests or experience that you’d like to share with our viewers? I would like them to appreciate this. During this COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic we’re hearing a lot of doom and gloom. Horrific stories especially are coming out of New York of how severe COVID-19 coronavirus disease can be. And what I’d like to perhaps to end on, is an optimistic note. There are COVID-19 coronavirus vaccine trials which are ongoing now. And even projections that by the end of 2020 we may well have a vaccine for this particular COVID-19 coronavirus. I dare to say very confidently that within the next months we will have therapeutic interventions for those who have both mild COVID-19 coronavirus disease and severe disease. So I think we’re going to see that. As in the southern hemisphere the numbers of cases start increasing, we will be able to learn from our experience how to manage those cases better. But perhaps most pertinent we will more than likely have therapeutic interventions for COVID-19 coronavirus. Therapy will cover both direct antivirals and those immunomodulators that are associated with that terrible inflammation of the lungs. So maybe a combination of a direct antiviral that inhibits the COVID-19 coronavirus and an immunomodulator that limits the lung inflammation will allow us to beat this disease.
