The good news in all of this Coronaviurs mess is that it appears that there are drugs already on the market that can help stop this pandemic dead in its tracks. We just need to get from point A to point B as quickly as possible.

A group of researchers from Down Under has identified yet another FDA-approved drug that is effective in treating COVID-19.

This one is a drug that is used to treat parasites and can kill the virus in under 48 hours.

Researchers in Australia report that Ivermectin, an FDA-approved drug commonly used to treat parasites, appears to be effective in treating the SARS-COV-2 coronavirus (COVID-19). The drug is widely available and can be “repurposed” for this application, doctors said.

The ScienceDirect journal, Antiviral Research, published an article by a group of Australian researchers from Monash University in Melbourne reporting that Ivermectin appears to be effective at inhibiting the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.

The article states:

Ivermectin is an inhibitor of the COVID-19 causative virus (SARS-CoV-2) in vitro.
A single treatment able to effect ∼5000-fold reduction in virus at 48h in cell culture.
Ivermectin is FDA-approved for parasitic infections, and therefore has a potential for repurposing.
Ivermectin is widely available, due to its inclusion on the WHO model list of essential medicines.
“We report here that Ivermectin, an FDA-approved anti-parasitic previously shown to have broad-spectrum antiviral activity in vitro, is an inhibitor of the causative virus (SARS-CoV-2),” the researchers write. “Ivermectin, therefore, warrants further investigation for possible benefits in humans.” [Breitbart]

Dr. Kylie Wagstaffis the leader of the research team and he issued a statement on the breakthrough:

“Ivermectin is very widely used and seen as a safe drug. We need to figure out now whether the dosage you can use it at in humans will be effective—that’s the next step,” Newsweek magazine reported. “We found that even a single dose could essentially remove all viral RNA by 48 hours and that even at 24 hours there was a really significant reduction in it.”

Once again, we have some amazing hope with another drug. I wonder how long until Democrat governors come out and disavow this and forbid doctors from using it?

These people place politics over lives.
