A human monoclonal 1 antibody blocking SARS-CoV-2 infection

"https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.03.11.987958v1"

Abstract

The emergence of the novel human coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 in Wuhan, China has caused a worldwide epidemic of respiratory disease (COVID-19). Vaccines and targeted therapeutics for treatment of this disease are currently lacking. Here we report a human monoclonal antibody that neutralizes SARS-CoV-2 (and SARS-CoV). This cross-neutralizing antibody targets a communal epitope on these viruses and offers potential for prevention and treatment of COVID-19.

How legit is this? Hoping this is not part of China's propaganda. The world is badly suffering from this Covid19 virus, imagine how many people have died.

I wouldn't trust any of their claims unless validated by the FDA.

Yeah I agree. This might cause harm rather than cure.
