’ was able to kill coronavirus grown in cell cultures in less than 48 hours.
Ivermectin is a medication used to treat many types of anti-parasite infection.
Ivermectin is an inhibitor of the covid-19 causative virus in vitro.
Ivermectin is FDA-approved for parasitic infections and therefore has a potential for repurposing.
