A 49-year-old male asked:

Can xofluza (baloxavir) work against coronaviruses in general, and covid-19 specifically? are doctors trying it for covid-19 patients?

Not likely: Baloxavir is not likely to be effective against coronaviruses; to my knowledge no research is underway or planned to study this drug for COVID-19..
