COVID-19: Medical scientist discovers vaccine that kills the virus cells

Medical scientists all over the world are doing everything possible to create a vaccine that would see the end of the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, there's a partial breakthrough as Monash University-led study has discovered an antiparasite drug called "Ivermectin" that could stop the SARS-CoV-2 virus cells within the surprisingly short space of 48 hrs(2 days).

''We found that even a single dose could essentially remove all viral RNA (effectively removed all genetic material of the virus) by 48 hours and that even at 24 hours there was a really significant reduction".According to the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute's Dr Kylie Wagstaff

It has also been gathered that the drug has also be notably effective in other viral diseases such as HIV, Influenza and the Zika virus.

However, the team are trying to make human trials of the drug that was created. According to the scientist, it would start in at least in a month's time. 

So, once it's found that the drug is officially friendly with the human biological body systems and suitable for human consumption, then, it's most likely the very end of the coronavirus pandemic outbreak.
