The UK has started a large-scale trial of a new treatment that is expected to protect COVID-19 patients from developing the disease severely.

Treatment involves breathing in a protein called interferon beta that the body makes when it gets a viral infection.

It is expected that boost the immune system, preparing cells to be ready to fight viruses.

Preliminary results of the treatment indicate that it reduces by almost 80% the chances that Covid-19 patients will develop the disease in a serious way, requiring respirators for example.
