Available in pharmacies ... Researchers discover an effective treatment against Corona{International: Al Furat News} A team of researchers from the Montreal Heart Institute announced that they had reached an “effective drug” against the emerging corona virus.
The Canadian Institute said in a statement that the drug is Colchicine, which is taken orally and is already known and used for other diseases.

The study included 4,159 patients who tested positive for the Coronavirus through a nasal swab test (PCR).

The team found that colchicine reduced the need for artificial respiration by 50 percent and mortality by 44 percent.

The team believes that the drug can help reduce overcrowding in hospitals due to Corona, and it can also reduce health care costs.

The drug showed effectiveness in preventing “cytokine storms” caused by the body’s immune system, and the drug also reduces complications resulting from corona.

Colchicine has been available in pharmacies and has been used to treat gout for a long time.

The study is one of the largest studies in the world within the efforts made to combat the Corona virus.

The study included patients in Canada, the United States of America, Europe, South America and South Africa, and the study was coordinated by the Montreal Heart Institute’s Montreal Heart Institute (MHICC) study.

Since the beginning of the outbreak of the Corona virus in the world, a number of drugs have been declared effective in facing it, the most famous of which was hydroxychloroquine, which sparked controversy and political debate.

So far, vaccines have been approved by a number of countries, and have already begun to vaccinate their citizens, while the virus continues to spread and reap more victims.

Since the start of the epidemic, the number of detection tests has increased dramatically and screening and tracking techniques have improved, which has led to an increase in diagnosed infections.

More than 98,127,150 people worldwide have contracted the virus since the outbreak of the epidemic, 59,613,300 of them have recovered.

The new Corona virus has killed 2,107,903 people in the world since the WHO office in China reported the outbreak of the disease at the end of December 2019.
