“Doctors in India have been successful in treating Coronavirus. Combination of drugs used: Lopinavir, Retonovir, Oseltamivir along with Chlorphenamine. They are going to suggest the same medicine globally.”
India had great success in treating people with the virus. Using a combination of drugs, they have found success. The drugs are used for anti-HIV and malaria. The Economic Times in India reported the success with Medical and Health Chief Secretary saying:
“Their symptoms were flu-like so they were initially given anti-malaria and anti-swine flu drugs,”
“All this while, our doctors were in touch with the Indian Council of Medical Research and the Drug Controller General of India. Since the structure of coronavirus is similar to that of HIV to some extent, so they tried a combination of the two anti-HIV drugs,”
“It appears it (the combination of drugs) is working because three patients have recovered. Good thing is that all the three patients are elderly and the successful result of the drug on patients of such age is a big thing,” he said.
TechStartUp reported on an academic study that was launched and is showing similar results using anti-malaria medications.
