      In a recent study published in iScience, researchers found a drug combo that may cure COVID-19 together.

      In an exciting outcome, they found two drugs that provided effective SARS-CoV-2 suppression: cepharanthine, which is used to treat inflammation, and nelfinavir, which is approved for the treatment of HIV infection.

      Cepharanthine inhibited the entry of the virus into cells by preventing the virus from binding to a protein on the cell membrane, which it uses as a gateway.

      In contrast, nelfinavir worked to prevent the virus from replicating inside the cell by inhibiting a protein that the virus relies on for replication.

      I wonder how much this little combo costs.  I bet it’s more than the generic Ivermectin.
