Treatment for the coronavirus could come from right here in Tampa Bay. The Tampa Bay Business Journal reports ViralClear Pharmaceuticals in St. Petersburg is currently doing trials on a soft gel oral drug that would fight COVID-19. They wouldn’t make the pills here; an agreement has been signed with a company in New Jersey to produce them. Obviously there are many levels of studies and government approval they have to go through. Plus they have a lot of competition from big medical companies as the rush is on to get some kind of treatment or vaccine out to the public. But it’s great to see progress being made right here in our area.
