Do HIV Drugs Help Fight Coronavirus; UK Offers PrEP Nationwide; Ryan Field Books

Do HIV Drugs Help Fight Coronavirus

This is an interesting article from amfAR that discusses HIV meds and the coronavirus. Right now doctors are scrambling to find the right antivirals for coronavirus, and nothing is definite. But it is hopeful. 

There is anecdotal evidence to suggest that anti-HIV drugs may be effective. Thai doctors gave lopinavir and ritonavir in combination with a flu drug to a Chinese coronavirus patient, who tested negative for the virus within two days.

Here’s the rest. It took years to develop the right HIV drugs, and maybe this will help with what’s happening right now. I just wish AIDS and HIV had been taken as seriously as Coronavirus. And you don’t want to dispute that with me. 

UK Offers PrEP Nationwide

This is big news, and it’s encouraging. The National Health Service in the UK will be offering PrEP nationwide. According to this article and most other research I’ve seen, the PrEP regimen seems most effective in stopping the spread of HIV.

 The BBC reports that UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock hopes that the easy availability of PrEP will eliminate new HIV cases within 10 years.

You can read it all, here. It’s short and gets right to the point. There’s a comment at the bottom that I found interesting.

What readers said about Kendle’s Fire. 

While the book is easily readable, it also addresses emotions stereotypes and relationships. I would have preferred it be 3 times as long and tragically most guys don’t find happy endings as depicted.. but in a short book, it provides food for thought, clarity and insight.. far more and better expressed than 99% of gay fiction . I don’t think it could have been done better.
