Since examining more than 6,400 medicines, researchers have identified 7 cures to treat the Corona virus.
Researchers at University of Barcelona, Spain, have discovered 7 drugs that can help the body to fight the new Corona virus and prevent its propagation in the human body, according to the Daily Mail.
The researchers confirmed that after studying 6446 authorized drugs, they found that there are only 7 drugs that have proven effective in fighting the virus and stopping its reproduction, therefore, they seek to document them.
They note that most people’s immune system helps them fight the virus, but some at-risk need medications that help them fight the virus, and these seven drugs may do so.
The seven medications are: pyrampanyl, carprofen, celecoxib, alprazolam or xanax, truvafloxacin, sarafloxacin, ethyl biscomacetate.
The scientists explained that the drug ethyl biscomacetate is used as an anticoagulant and blood clots that may occur as a result of corona virus, and carprofen is a veterinary drug used by animals for animals.
They added that Xanax, which is used as a treatment for anxiety, has no strong evidence that it helps treat the pandemic virus.
This research comes at a time when hundreds of companies and research centers are striving to produce an anti-virus vaccine by the end of the year.
The British Ministry of Health has announced that it will use the remedy HIV anti-Ebola drug to treat some of the patients who are likely to benefit from Coronavirus, in cooperation with its manufacturer, Gilead Sciences.
The ministry said that preliminary data from clinical trials worldwide showed that the drug could reduce recovery time from Covid-19 to four days.
