Immune clue sparks treatment hope

UK scientists are to begin testing a treatment that it is hoped could counter the effects of Covid-19 in the most seriously ill patients.

The clinical trial will evaluate if a drug called interleukin 7, known to boost T-cell numbers, can aid patients' recovery.

Potential good news, though I expect some won't want to believe its possible

Anything is possible.
The only trouble we have is whether what it takes to get anywhere with anything.
Questions have to be asked like is it legal or ethical etc etc.
What is ethical to you might not be for others.
What appears right for you might not be right for others etc etc.
I am afraid one size will never fit all.
