    I was interested in your discussion of a new TMPRSS2 inhibitor candidate for coronavirus therapy. I recently reviewed some of the agents that have been considered as possible coronavirus therapeutics targeting fusion and entry. My review preceded publication of the article you discussed. My review reference is as follows:

    Hawley HB. Coronavirus fusion and entry are targets for new therapies. Ann Public Health Reports 2022;6(1):249-253.
