Go find the animals which are already to immune to the Coronavirus, work out which bit of their immune system is bit you need and give it a go.

One of the Gilead antivirals may be effective https://www.fierceb...ficacy-starts-trial

       Oddly, if this Coronavirus is anything like flu in its effects, it may well be your immune system that kills you. Over- reaction to infection can be as fatal as underreaction.

       Most effective treatment: "Stay at home, take plain fluids and paracetamol, keep comfortable, wait for it to go away".   

       This works in 98% of cases. The other 2% die, but that happens with lots of other viruses and isn't statistically significant.

       MB, I did not know that but it makes sense. The people I know that use sanitizer like water and are germ-a-phobes are usually sick all the time.

       Water is an excellent sanitizer. Sunlight is even better.

       A blend of gamma radiation and fast neutrons is cheap and highly effective.

       ...just wondering...how is Sturton?   

       As to the rumour that he is patient zero...Sadly, I am not surprised.

       Due to his characteristic impatience, bad temper, and competition with his siblings, he got himself "promoted" to being Patient -1, although Impatient -1 might be a better description.

       If you have antirats and the virus it does not follow that you will get antivirus and rats.
