And in a new that sends hope and spreads optimism, a study conducted by researchers at the Institute of Biomedical Sciences in the state of Georgia, USA, indicated that in the face of the emerging corona virus, the world needs treatments that reduce the risk of complications from the epidemic, in addition to vaccines, indicating a candidate they have who can fulfill the purpose.
American University researchers have confirmed that taking antivirals orally can prevent the spread of Corona, and the authors of the study, whose results were published in the scientific journal “Nature Microbiology”, said that the anti-viral drug “monloperavir” can prevent the transmission of the Corona virus within 24 hours.
According to the supervisor of the study, Dr. Richard Blimber, the effective drug against the influenza virus is able to stop the release or transmission of Covid-19, due to its effectiveness against respiratory viruses, adding that scientists noticed after subjecting animals infected with the coronavirus to the drug that it reduced the amount of viral particles, This necessarily means reducing the chances of transmission of infection, as he put it.
In the context also, researchers revealed that the aforementioned drug has many advantages, the first of which is that it prevents the emergence of severe symptoms of Covid-19, as it shortens the duration of the contagious period, and suppresses the virus quickly.
They added that this drug could reduce the reproduction of the virus inside the body, thus reducing the “viral load” significantly in patients.
That is, if there is not enough virus in the body, patients will have less severe symptoms, if any, and they will be less likely to infect others around them.
The scientists reached the results of their study based on an experiment in which they injected a group of rodents with the “SARS-Cove-2” virus, and treated them with an anti-viral drug after symptoms of the disease appeared. Then the researchers exposed healthy rodents to those that received the drug, but no infection was recorded. In the ranks of those recovering, which indicates no transmission.
“Dream about the end of the epidemic.”
It is noteworthy that the person in charge of the health file at the United Nations, announced Friday, that the positive results from the trials of the Coronavirus vaccine mean that the world “can start to dream of the end of the epidemic,” but he said that the rich and powerful countries should not trample the poor and marginalized “in the stampede” On vaccines ».
