LYON, France — VirPath, a university laboratory in Lyon, is working to find an effective treatment for the novel coronavirus using an existing database of drugs.

"So our objective is obviously to evaluate and hopefully approve these repurposed drugs very quickly within a month, a month and a half to be able to propose a treatment with these repurposed drugs for the patients," Manuel Rosa-Calatrava, co-director of the VirPath laboratory said.

"The repurposing of drugs very quickly allows us to propose a treatment strategy by drawing on our current database and thus enable us to respond extremely quickly to emerging viral health crises like this one," he also said.
