Clinical trial coronavirus Spain

Barcelona, Spain Breaking News March 17 @ 9:23pm

Good afternoon,
I am a freelance journalist based in Barcelona.

Considering the current situation in Spain in reference to the coronavirus, I wanted to send you a proposal in case you are interested (you can see some samples of my work in my website:

The report would consist of looking at and closely following the work of the doctor specialized in infectious diseases Oriol Mitjà, who is making himself known a lot these days thanks to his knowledge of this still so strange virus. In fact, he raised the alarm himself weeks ago, foreshadowing the current chaotic situation when no one yet foresaw what would come next.

Summary of the topic:
Spain has decreed the state of alarm to stop the growth of coronavirus cases. In the midst of this crisis, this monday have begun in Catalonia the first clinical trial to test the efficacy of a treatment against coronavirus. This investigation gives hope to stop the virus, because it would serve both people who have already been infected and those who have not yet been infected. The study is led by the Department of Health, together with the Health Quality and Assessment Agency of Catalonia and the doctor specialized in infectious diseases at the Germans Trias i Pujol Hospital, Oriol Mitjà. He is optimistic himself and says they will have the first results in just 21 days.
Also through him he will see the whole chaos situation generated in Spain with coronavirus and how medicine is struggling to find solutions to it.

If you are interested, we can talk about it, although it should be in a short time, since the clinical trial have begun this week.

Thank you!
