Coronavirus breakthrough as scientists discover a drug used to treat HEAD LICE can kill COVID-19 cells

An anti-parasitic head lice drug available around the world has been found to kill COVID-19 in the lab within 48 hours.

A Monash University-led study has shown a single dose of the drug Ivermectin could stop the SARS-CoV-2 virus growing in cell culture.

'We found that even a single dose could essentially remove all viral RNA (effectively removed all genetic material of the virus) by 48 hours and that even at 24 hours there was a really significant reduction in it,' Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute's Dr Kylie Wagstaff said on Friday.

While it's not known how Ivermectin works on the virus, the drug likely stops the virus dampening the host cells' ability to clear it.

The next step is for scientists to determine the correct human dosage, to make sure the level used in vitro is safe for humans.

Dude I believe there is modern institutional slavery but you are dumb.

If it is not publicized, has no facts and you are so sure about it you better go see a psychiatrist to address your delusions.

White people test drugs that white people will use on black people? Do you not know that there is a genetic component to the effectiveness of drugs, Infact Black people are underrepresented in medical research an example is ADHD, most of the studies carried out were on white people, because of proximity they have to medical research and their population in countries that pioneer these researches.

Why is it an average Nigerian believes there is someone somewhere who hates and wants to destroy him day and night, follow the facts and not Bullshit biko
