Israeli Researchers Could Be Having The Treatment For Coronavirus

A group of researchers in northern Israel on Thursday said they had achieved a “scientific breakthrough” in finding the treatment for coronavirus (COVID-19).

Researchers of the Migal Galilee Research Institute say they have so far discovered a treatment that can cure the virus and have been successful while testing birds infected with coronavirus.

Clinical trials that have been going on at Israel’s Volcani Agricultural Research Institute had confirmed the treatment’s viability.

“The basic coronavirus in birds is very similar in patterns of infection and effect of the virus in humans, and the genetic structure of the virus in both humans and birds is very similar,” the researchers said.

The researchers have said in three months, the treatment developed for birds will have been developed and applicable to humans. This is a major milestone in the journey to finding an effective treatment for the virus which has so far claimed thousands of lives all over the world.

“There is a great need for an immediate solution to human infection of coronavirus, and we have been working to do that nonstop. The solution we are developing against COVID-19 virus has proven effective, and we believe a version for human treatment can be ready within eight to 10 weeks. That would be followed by a 90-day test period to ensure safety. The treatment we developed for birds is given orally, and the treatment we are developing for humans will also be given orally.” David Zigdon, Chief Operating Officer of the Institute, stated.
