“Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is caused by a newly discovered coronavirus (SARS-CoV). No effective prophylactic or post-exposure therapy is currently available.
We report, however, that chloroquine has strong antiviral effects on SARS-CoV infection of primate cells. These inhibitory effects are observed when the cells are treated with the drug either before or after exposure to the virus, suggesting both prophylactic and therapeutic advantage.”
A research paper published in the Virology Journal in 2005, entitled Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread (( ://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1232869/ )
My take on it
Others have said it for me:
Disappointing. Disgusting. But no longer surprising.
