    The medicine that they have found for this disease is dirt cheap and I hope our ministries will not spend billions to import the proprietory drugs that may be very expensive.

    About three hours ago the Chinese Government TV channel (CGTV?) was giving the details of two type of medicine they have discovered as the remedy for Covid-19. One is the Anti-Malaria medicine and the other that attacks the RNA of the virus. Perhaps it is a medicine available in SL (Tamiflu?). They were showing how these medicine attack the virus with diagrams. Perhaps the Chinese are using this mixture and showing that everything is under control in their country. And perhaps our authorities are also trying this out but do not want to show as they want to give an indication of efficiency.
    If that is the case then they have to relax these controls a bit so that we can go out and breath some fresh air.

    Today I saw how the police is catching some paultry farmers for attending to their farm. If they do not attend to the farms a single day large number of birds would die of starvation making a huge loss.
