A group of physicians from the Argentine beach resort of Mar del Plata have been trying a new therapy against COVID-19 of their own concoction which has so far yielded “very encouraging results,” according to press reports.

The investigation undertaken by doctors from Mar del Plata's Colón Clinic has worked in 100% of critically ill patients and could revolutionize the treatment of the disease globally as per local news outlets.

The approach consists of applying to COVID-19 patients the treatments already recommended for pulmonary edema instead of those used for pneumonia, it was explained. Anti-inflammatory drugs are used in the first case and diuretics in the second.
