Alberto Zangrillo, an Italian doctor and the head of the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan, on Monday, June 1, said that the new strain of coronavirus is fast losing its power and is not as dangerous as it used to be.
The senior doctor said that “clinically”, the virus is no longer in Italy, a country which was one of the hotbeds of the virus earlier in the year, ABS-CBN reports.
Just as Alberto urged for the country to return back to normal, the government said that it is still too soon to declare victory over the virus as there is still no scientific evidence.
Sandra said the country should rather continue to tell Italians to maintain caution and practice hygiene, following all the guidelines against the virus.
Another doctor, Matteo Bassetti, said that the effect of the virus is not as strong as it was two months ago in the country, saying the present nature of the virus is quite different.
Meanwhile, scientists predicted that a vaccine for coronavirus could be ready as soon as results of over 10,000 Covid-19 patients who were involved in a clinical trial are ready by late June 2020.
If the experts carrying out the trial process are successful, the vaccine could be rolled out immediately.
The recovery trial is a scientific evaluation that looks at overall Covid-19 therapy and medications that were administered with the hope of getting the combination that is effective in treating patients.
The deputy chief investigator of the trial at Oxford University, Professor Martin Landray, said they are being meticulous with their process.
Landry added that a combination of different dru*gs could be the best way to beat the coronavirus once and for all. It should be noted that among the dru*gs that have been tested and that could make the final combination are hydroxychloroquine, lopinavir-ritonavir, and tocilizumab.
