Scientists at Australian Monash University and the Royal Hospital in Melbourne have created a drug that will help in the fight against coronavirus. It is called ivermectin and can inhibit the reproduction of SARS-CoV-2 in just two days.

As reported RIA News, experts introduced the medicine into the cells two hours after their infection. During the day, the viral load decreased by 93%, and after two days - by 99%. By suppressing the virus, the drug did not have a detrimental effect on the samples.

According to Australian scientists, ivermectin can help reduce the viral load, prevent the development of complications and prevent the transmission of the virus from person to person.

Early February in China tried to find outwhether the Russian drug “Triazavirin” can help in the fight against coronavirus. At the end of March, in the center of Rospotrebnadzor "Vector" reported vaccine development against a new infection. Deputy Prime Minister Tatyana Golikova said that in the summer of 2020, her tests on volunteers will begin.
