In this short video, I want to talk about some good coronavirus news. There has actually been a coronavirus treatment that has been developed and is being tested in a few different countries, including South Korea and China. Now, it’s also going to be used in the USA. 

They’re actually using an old drug that’s being repurposed. It’s called chloroquine. 

The original purpose of chloroquine is for malaria. It kills parasites. But, this treatment may be a very good solution for COVID-19.

Things are starting to get a lot better concerning COVID-19 in places like South Korea and China. So, what are these countries doing differently? One of the things they’re doing is using this medication. 

Chloroquine is a zinc ionophore. A virus invades the cells and hijacks the machinery that reproduces. It then starts to make copies of itself. Zinc has the potential to kill viruses because it shuts down the “copy machine” so that it can’t reproduce anymore. 

The problem is that zinc is an ion, and it has a difficult time crossing the lipid bilayer of the cell. Chloroquine has the ability to take the ion and transport it through the cell. Chloroquine enhances zinc inside of the cell.
