Aspirin was found to be highly effective against influenza A H1N1 virus. The antiviral activity against further respiratory RNA viruses was less distinct. Respiratory syncytial virus was minimally inhibited. However, the activity of aspirin against rhinoviruses was more pronounced. Aspirin demonstrated antiviral activity against all human rhinoviruses (HRV), but the effect on members of the "major group" viruses, namely HRV14 and HRV39, was greater than on those of the "minor group," HRV1A and HRV2

Acyclovir is another antiviral, used to treat infections caused by herpes viruses, such as genital herpes, cold sores, shingles, and chicken pox, that also works (somewhat) against HIV

Well apparently yet more medical issues are being solved based on HIV studies.  It really is the Gordian knot of medical science.  Apparently the corona virus and the influenza virus are having their replication process screwed by HIV ARVs.

Are they still testing to see if the job meds really did the job? Or is it confirmed besides just one person getting cured?
Hopefully they get rid of this virus quickly before it spreads all around the world.

fabio:
Meant hiv meds and not "job meds" 😅. This autocorrect is killing me haha.
