A paper by a team of international researchers on the usage of a banana-derived therapy that could be used to fight known strains of influenza was published a week before the world changed forever, thanks to COVID-19. Prior to the arrival of the virus, the international study team had also investigated this therapy for effectiveness against strains of coronaviruses.
