BOSTON (WHDH) - A group of scientists based in Boston and backed by billionaires — including Bain Capital co-chair and Celtics co-owner Steve Pagliuca — say they’re working on solutions to end the pandemic.

The group, which calls itself “Scientists to Stop Covid-19,” sent a 17-page report to the White House this week calling for using more powerful drugs in larger doses.

They also propose a saliva test for the virus and scheduling tests at the end of the workday.
