New Fuji cameras to include anti-viral.

Well not really  - subject is of rag-top tabloid misrepresentation but I thought this was pretty interesting:

It seems Fujifilm Holdings make a treatment for coronavirus. They night include it in the box - got to better than a firmware update.

Article quote:

"Fujifilm is considering boosting output of the anti-influenza drug Avigan (favipiravir) after it was asked to by the Japanese government, ...

... Avigan has previously been used to treat Ebola, according to Fujifilm’s website, and Kato said test dosages have shown effects in mild and asymptomatic coronavirus cases."

I thought the only medical gear they made were lens related.
