A Bangladeshi medical team led by a senior doctor has claimed that their research on the combination of two widely used drugs has produced “surprising” results in curing patients with acute symptoms of coronaviruses that have created chaos worldwide and claimed the lives of more than 312,000 people globally.
Claims by the Bangladesh medical team, which includes leading doctors from the country, came amid desperate global efforts to recover the deadly corona virus.
“We got amazing results. Of the 60 COVID-19 patients, all recovered after the combination of the two drugs was applied, “said Professor Dr. Md Tarek Alam, head of the medical department at the private Bangladesh Medical College Hospital (BMCH).
Alam, a well-known doctor in Bangladesh, says a commonly used antiprotozoal drug called Ivermectin in a single dose with Doxycycline, an antibiotic, produces almost miraculous results in curing patients with COVID-19.
“My team prescribed two drugs only for coronavirus patients, most of whom initially reported respiratory problems with associated complaints, then tested COVID-19 positive,” he said.
Bangladesh has reported 20,995 cases of corona virus so far. A total of 314 people have lost their lives in the country due to this disease.
Claiming that the efficacy of the drug developed by them is such that patients recover from the virus within 4 days, he said, adding that there were no side effects from it.
“We first asked them to be tested for COVID-19 and when a positive coronavirus was found, we used these drugs. . . they recover in four days “.
“Repeated or second tests, according to the procedure, confirm their return of COVID-19 is negative in all cases under the study which found the combination had no side effects in patients as well,” he said.
“We are one hundred percent hopeful” about the effectiveness of the combination, he said, adding that they are now contacting the relevant government regulators and preparing to issue international procedures for drug recognition for the treatment of COVID-19.
Alam said his team was preparing papers on drug development for international journals, as needed for scientific review and recognition.
Nature’s colleague, Dr Rabiul Morshed said that although it was a non-COVID-19 facility, a large number of patients “directly and indirectly ended up at BMCH, the country’s main private public hospital.
“But all showed a remarkable recovery (COVID-19) negative in four days and a 50% reduction in symptoms in 3 days,” he said.
Coronavirus, which originally erupted in China, claimed the lives of 312,115 people while infecting more than 4,650,793, according to Johns Hopkins University.
