By Aaron Humes: The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela states it will present a new drug to the World Health Organization (WHO) for certification, which it believes is highly effective in eliminating Sars-nCov-2, the virus which causes COVID-19.
According to TeleSur, Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro said the Venezuelan Institute for Scientific Research (IVIC) designed the treatment, based on a molecule known as TR-10, and have been testing it for six months, resulting in 100 percent “annihilation of the virus.”
The new drug, described by Maduro as a “great contribution to humanity,” will be offered to the world and produced in mass quantities through international alliances.
The IVIC says its studies found no side effects for patients and no disruption to the body.
Science & Technology Minister, Gabriela Jimenez, said that the studies were conducted on virus cells isolated from Venezuelan coronavirus patients and that the molecule is an ursolic acid derivative, which “has shown 100 percent inhibition of virus replication in vitro.”
Earlier this month, Venezuela became the first Latin American nation to receive Russia’s COVID-19 vaccine, with clinical trials involving 2,000 volunteers. Maduro also announced that thousands of Chinese vaccines will come to the country over the next months.
Venezuela currently has just under 90,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19, with 773 reported deaths.
