Japanese treatment

I've read several stories from creditable sources about success in treating Coronavirus in Japan using a flu vaccine. Is anyone familiar with this?

1. I've heard about a couple treatments.

Australia and Cuba both claim treatments that are supposedly very successful.

I'm still watching and hoping.

and showing it wasn't born yesterday:

In October 2014, a French nurse with Ebola virus who was treated with a combination of Avigan and other drugs recovered. Fujifilm said that information was relayed to the Tokyo-based company by the French National Agency for Medicines and Health Products Safety.

The French Institute of Health and Medical Research then carried out a clinical trial on Aviganís efficacy as a treatment for EVD at four medical institutes in Guinea from December 2014 to May 2015. Based on the trial results, the Guinean government adopted Avigan tablet administration as part of a treatment regimen for EVD.
