  1. Please find out and share with your readers, what medical treatment he is being prescribed for quarantine at home. Previously, in order to receive any treatment, it was necessary to be admitted to hospital. With no visitors, no phones, nada. If treatment at home is now available, this would be a major improvement in the rules here for our benefit.
