Feb 26, 2020 14:19 IST

The University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha announced Tuesday it is enrolling adults diagnosed with the Coronavirus for a new clinical drug trial to treat the disease. Dr. Andre Kalil, an infectious disease specialist and professor of internal medicine at UNMC said they will test about 400 patients at about 50 sites globally for the purpose of the trial. This is the first clinical trial in the United States to evaluate an experimental treatment for COVID-19.
