The COVID-19 pandemic has killed over 57000 people worldwide but there are no specific treatments for the disease as yet. With trails of a few potential drugs underway scientists are hoping a cure or protective vaccine for the novel coronavirus soon. In the latest development Australian researchers have found that an anti-parasitic drug already available around the world can kill COVID-19 in lab grown cells. They found that the drug Ivermectin stopped the virus SARS-CoV-2 from growing in cell culture within 48 hours. The researchers said that even a single dose can essentially remove all viral RNA by 48 hours.
