Nearly 70 drugs and experimental compounds may be effective in treating the coronavirus, a team of researchers reported on Sunday night. Some of the medications are already used to treat other diseases, and repurposing them to treat Covid-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus, may be faster than trying to invent a new antiviral from scratch, the scientists said.

So if people take any of the drugs listed here without a doctor's supervision, is the New York Times responsible for their death?

Using the logic of many proggies on this thread, the NYT will be responsible.

I always thought the answer was 47.

But 69 is an excellent number to test.

That is stupid in so many ways that it is actually surprising you would post it. You're actually better than that Goat.

When departing information is the cause of death then we are doomed.

"Nerds to the rescue."

Exactly who I expected to save us....eventually. Even the nerdiest of the nerdy need some time to solve this but, I have faith, they will. Perhaps it is really time we had a nerd as President? I'm for it!

Nerdocrats! Yay!

I think you'll find it's "42" - but I'm fully supportive of your assessment of 69.
