Australian scientists claim to find medicine that kills Covid-19 in 48 hours


- Advertisment -

A group of scientist in Australia has claimed to find a drug that can kill the novel coronavirus in 48 hours.

Experts from Monash University said in a research published on Antiviral Research journal that a single dose of FDA-approved drug Ivermectin can stop the new coronavirus from growing in cell culture, thus destroying its genetic material in just two days or within 48 hours.

“We found that even a single dose could essentially remove all viral RBA by 48 hours and that even at 24 hours, there was a really significant reduction in it,” lead researcher Dr. Kylie Wagstaff said in a statement.

The study was conducted in a lab and the process hasn’t been done to human yet. However, the team of scientists believes the drug can likely stop the virus from spreading when taken.

“Ivermectin is very widely used and seen a 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,” he added.
