    Researchers say they have found another life-saving treatment for Covid-19.

    In the trial, which included nearly 10,000 UK hospital patients, the treatment significantly reduced the risk of death and the length of hospital stay.

    Results from the Recovery trial suggest it could help one in three of those in hospital with severe Covid.

    For every 100 patients treated, experts calculate, it would save six lives.
