President Trump is looking at an old German medicine as a possible cure for novel coronavirus. This came after a group of scientists confirmed the drug inhibits the virus in most cases, making a proper vaccine unnecessary. One America's Kristian Rouz looks into the matter. The world was stunned when China's government announced the shut down of Wuhan, the city at the centre of the coronavirus outbreak.
The blanket quarantine, designed to stop the spread of the disease, has never been tried on such an enormous scale in modern times.
Wuhan in Hubei Province is home to eleven million people. They've finally been allowed out of their homes after being stuck there for weeks.
Their suffering - and the government's gamble - seems to have paid off.
No new domestic cases were reported for the second successive day.
So should the rest of the world take the same measures?
And is China's experiment the model for us all?
