    My sons might like the second one... ;)

    As for Intel: crazy and counterproductive quarterly pressure on Anglo-American business is not helping!

    They should be able to play long(er) term like in EU. If not - they have no one to blame but the USofA business "culture"....

    https://www.researchgate.net/public...-2_replication_and_synergizes_with_remdesivir

    Abstract
    The recent outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), caused by the severe acute
    respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) virus, is a global threat to human health. By in vitro
    screening and biochemical characterization, we identified the hepatitis C virus (HCV) protease inhibitor
    simeprevir as an especially promising repurposable drug for treating COVID-19. We also revealed that
    simeprevir synergizes with the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRP) inhibitor remdesivir to
    suppress the replication of SARS-CoV-2 in vitro. Our results provide preclinical rationale for the
    combination treatment of simeprevir and remdesivir for the pharmacological management of COVID-
    19 patients.

    These guys are funded by the taxpayers and they immediately share their insights with the rest of the world... Unlike commercial buggers...
