I actually took part as a “lab rat” testing how effective ritonavir was at reducing symptoms when I got Covid back in January! Crazy to see this now after doing that trial. I didn’t partake in these particular studies mentioned in the op. Edit: I did a trial for ritonavir NOT nelfinavir, both are used for HIV treatment though and do just about the same thing


That sounds like a good news.


Isn’t Nelfinavir an Elven archer in Lord of the Rings?


There is also research that ivermectin works. There is a whole bunch of research out there on how to treat covid.


Let’s hope this works on all variants…
