In a paper published July 27 in the journal PLoS One, the researchers tested their drug against 15 viruses, and found it was effective against all of them including rhinoviruses that cause the common cold, H1N1 influenza, a stomach virus, a polio virus, dengue fever and several other types of hemorrhagic fever.

If this actually works, it's going to be world changing.

Two downsides though First, this is the kind of drug that drug companies are going to do their best to kill. Second, this will have a huge unforeseeable impact on world population. I would bet it impacts global average lifespan by an increase of over 5 or 6 years.
