Bangla Doctors Claim COVID Cure With Two Drugs


A team of Bangladeshi doctors has claimed that their research on a combination of two widely used drugs– Doxycycline and Ivermectin–has shown promising  results in curing patients with COVID symptoms. 
They say the drugs ‘ has shown a ray of hope to the global medical fraternity in the fight against the deadly virus’.
Dr Tarek Alam from the Bangladesh Medical College Hospital, and one of the senior members of the team, told Easternlink  , these drugs were administered on 60 patients, all of whom experienced full recovery within four days.
Doctors of a private hospital in Bangladesh gave Ivermectin as well as an antibiotic drug Doxycycline to 60 coronavirus patients and after 72 hours, they found that all the patients were COVID-19 negative, said Dr. Kaushal Kant Mishra, in his study conducted for Monash University Australia
The patients were suffering from respiratory problems, as well as other symptoms of SARS-CoV-2.
 Dr Alam said his team is preparing a scientific paper on the effectiveness of the treatment woth these drugs  to  be published for peer-review. 
Dr Alam has said that antiprotozoal medicine called Ivermectin in a single dose with Doxycycline, an antibiotic, yielded the near-miraculous result in curing COVID-19 patients.
 He further stated that his team was prescribing the two medicines only for coronavirus patients, most of them initially reporting with respiratory problems with related complaints, later to be tested COVID-19 positive.
Ivermectin sticks to the parasite present in the body and the parasite is not able to excrete its larvae in the body, and thus is killed by this drug.
Even in India, the drug is being used in some states on coronavirus patients and doctors are hopeful that this easily available medicine would prove an effective weapon in the fight against coronavirus.
It may be too early to come to a definite conclusion, but there are sone cause of optimism .
Dr Aarti Lal Chandani, Principal of Kanpur Medical College, was quoted by  Zee Media as saying :  “Ivermectin is a drug that is part of the World Health Organization’s deworming programme, and is considered safe in the WHO’s Safety List. It is also used as a de-worming tablet and is used to treat coronavirus patients. Many Indian hospitals in Kerala, Uttar Pradesh’s Kanpur and Delhi are also trying this medicine on COVID-19 patients.”
According to Health expert Dr Kaushal Kant Mishra, studies conducted at Monash University Australia and the Victorian Infectious Diseases Reference Lab found that Ivermectin eradicated the coronavirus within 48 hours. 
The study also found that the use of the drug also weakened the RNA of coronavirus by almost 93 per cent. 
Although the drug was not tried on humans in the study, the same was done by doctors of a private hospital in Bangladesh.
Ivermectin is considered an antimicrobial drug to increase immunity. If it proves effective in the treatment of coronavirus, it would certainly become a miracle drug, but for that a major trial is needed.
These medicines Doxycycline and Ivermectin are in high demand, after the message about this medicine spread viral.
