The PRC Public Health Commission has published the sixth, updated list of drugs recommended for the fight against COVID-2019 coronavirus. It included funds for the prevention of malaria, drugs used for HIV infection, as well as a drug developed by the USSR.

Arbidol designed for the treatment of colds and flu was developed in the 70s of the last century by Soviet scientists. However, as the publication notes The Bell, most likely, we are talking about generics - copies of a previously created medicine.

Arbidol is not in the recommendations of the World Health Organization, nor is it recommended for use in a number of countries, including in the USA. Nevertheless, the drug is widely used in the post-Soviet space.

Last week, China said it had launched a drug that could potentially effectively fight the new coronavirus. It is produced in the eastern province of Zhejiang. Also, Chinese doctors said they found an effective way to fight coronavirus - transfusion of blood plasma of recovered patients to those who are still sick.
