The medical researchers at the University of Queensland Centre for Clinical Research in Australia have discovered a cure for coronavirus and according to them, the patient on which the drugs were tested on responded ‘very well’ to the treatment.
The Australian researchers discovered two different drugs that could help cure coronavirus and one of them is a popular anti-malaria drug known as chloroquine and the other is a drug used by people with HIV.
The drugs are still being tested and the patients on which both drugs are tested will be monitored and according to an infectious disease physician named Professor David Paterson, he said the patients will come in for the clinical trial by the end of March to see if it really worked.

In an interview with news.com.au, he said the drugs should be considered as a cure for the coronavirus as it was first used on the people who were id as the carrier of the virus into Australia and it worked. H also added that the drugs are ‘potentially effective treatment’ that should be used immediately to suppress the virus and probably used to cure the virus nationwide. In his words, he said;
“What we want to do at the moment is a large clinical trial across Australia, looking at 50 hospitals, and what we’re going to compare is one drug, versus another drug, versus the combination of the two drugs.’
That first wave of Chinese patients we had (in Australia), they all did very, very well when they were treated with the HIV drug,’ Professor Paterson said. “Professor David Paterson said
