According to “21st Century Business Herald” and China News Service on the 3rd: At 2 pm local time on the 2nd, Thai Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Health Anutin said at a press conference that Rajavitti, in response to a new coronavirus a team of hospital experts found a fast and effective treatment regimen, which improved forty-eight hours after being used on patients with severe pneumonia, and the results of the new coronavirus nucleic acid test were negative.
Anti-love drugs supplemented with flu drugs
The prescription is made by using AIDS drugs produced by government medical organizations and supplemented with drugs for treating influenza.
According to Dr. Kriansak, a lung disease expert at Rajavitti Hospital, the hospital previously received a patient with severe pneumonia (from Wuhan, China, 70 years old) with a basic medical history who was transferred from Hua Hin Hospital. With the spread of inflammation in the lungs of patients, the virus in the blood is increasing every day, even to the point that a ventilator is needed to help oxygen.
The patient turned negative after two days of medication
As a result, a team of experts at Rajavitti Hospital used medicines produced by government medical organizations to treat AIDS, supplemented with medicines for the treatment of influenza. Twelve hours after the medication, the patient’s symptoms improved, and not only did she have a fever, but she could also sit up and reduce fatigue. Forty-eight hours after the medication, the doctor tested the patient’s new coronavirus nucleic acid again and found it to be negative.
Treatment plan yet to be verified
Dr. Kriansak said that initially through the study of effective treatment options, it was found that critically ill patients used anti-AIDS drugs produced by the Thai pharmacy in the first hospital. After two days, the situation did not improve and did not worsen. So, I used the oseltamivir, a Thai flu drug, because of the severe symptoms of the patient, and used a high dose of the drug. In addition, previous records show that this drug has a certain effect on the treatment of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS), so it was decided to use these two drugs for severe patients at the same time, and then closely observe the patient’s condition.
Whether this treatment meets the standards remains to be seen. Previously, China had introduced treatments using anti-AIDS drugs alone.
The Thai Department of Disease Control reported on the afternoon of the 3rd that there were still 19 confirmed cases of new coronavirus pneumonia in Thailand, of which eight were cured. There have been no new confirmed cases in Thailand for three consecutive days.
