Coronavirus slows down?

Coronavirus slows down?

Good news in the fight against the rampaging Novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak afflicting China, and which has also spread to 25 countries and territories worldwide since December 2019, Business Times reports.

On Friday, the World Health Organization (WHO) said the coronavirus' rate of infection appears to be slowing down. Friday also marks the second day of human trials using an American-made drug shown in laboratory trials to be "highly effective" in curing 2019-nCoV. The drug is called "remdesivir" and it was developed years ago by the American biotechnology company, Gilead Sciences.

According to Business Times, WHO on Friday revealed the number of confirmed cases arising from the pneumonia-like Novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) has slowed down in China for the second straight day. While this is welcome news, WHO said it's still too early to celebrate.
