UWI has received approval from the Health Ministry to participate in the WHO’s Solidarity Trial.
The trial is underway in a number of countries to determine what drugs may slow the disease’s progression or improve survival rates.
As part of the process, UWI officials will reach out to current COVID-19 patients.
Dr Parasram stressed however that participation in the trial is strictly voluntary.
The trial is already underway in a number of countries around the world.
