Russian doctor: This drug is effective in treating corona virus

Egyptian News Vision: - In digesting the search for a cure for the emerging corona virus, a Russian doctor talked about a very effective drug, and said that the drug that was used 70 years ago had proven effective in recovering from the Covid 19 virus, while stressing that it had side effects.

Dr. Zakhar Lykin, medical director of the Russian drug company "NovaMedika", was talking about the drug used to cure malaria hydroxychloroquine, which was synthetically installed about 70 years ago to combat malaria.

Lekin said that doctors now use chlorine to treat people with the Coronavirus.

The Russian physician put forward the hypothesis that the coronavirus and malaria have common bonds that they use to influence healthy cells to curb fever and infection mechanisms.

He added, that scientists have carried out two studies on the effect of hydroxychloroquine on the body:

- First, the effect of using it alone.

- Second, use it together with the anti-HIV drug ritonavir.

But the researchers have not been able to determine how hydroxychloroquine affects the Corona virus, but experts point out two options:

  • The drug has an effect in all stages of virus infection - the adhesion of the virus, its penetration into the cell, its openness and reproduction inside it.
  • The prevailing theory is that the use of hydroxy chloroquine prevents the virus from opening inside the cell.

According to him, the last option is one that demonstrates the effective capabilities of the drug. Liken also pointed out that, like any other drug, this drug has side effects.

Chloroquine is toxic to the nervous system, and it negatively affects the retina, so doctors use small doses of it to treat the Corona virus.
