The Federal Medical-Biological Agency of Russia has published preliminary results of testing the anti-malaria medicine mefloquine against the coronavirus.

      Studies performed by doctors on cell culture showed that mefloquine at a concentration of 2 μg / ml completely blocked the negative impact of the new type coronavirus on healthy human cells.

       In addition, preliminary results of testing the drug in 347 patients showed that in 78 percent of participants with a moderate to severe course of the COVID-19 disease proceeds with positive clinical dynamics, regression, or stabilization of changes in the lung tissue. On the 5-7th day of treatment, the coronavirus test already yields a negative result, the publication notes.
