Direct: Last hour of the pandemic
Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro announced this Sunday that his country's scientists have "obtained a medicine that cancels 100% the coronavirus" that causes covid-10, called SARS-COV-2, and that it will
make it available to the World Health Organization (WHO)
"I want to say that Venezuela has achieved a medicine that cancels 100% the coronavirus," Maduro said in a government act in which he said that the Venezuelan Institute for Scientific Research (IVIC) has
been studying it for six months.
"Consequently, this study has been certified by experts and scientists and the route will be built in the next few days to ratify the results obtained by the IVIC through WHO," he said.
It is, according to the president, a molecule called
that "was completely isolated and was later confronted with the covid-19 virus" in a study that lasted 6 months and resulted in "
100% annihilation of the virus"
This molecule does not have
"any type of toxicity
that affects healthy molecules" or causes side effects.
Maduro was confident that the studies will be ratified by the WHO and, later, they will proceed "to
prepare mass production"
thanks to "international alliances" that he did not detail.
The Minister of Science and Technology, Gabriela Jiménez, clarified that the study "was monitored through cells infected with viruses (SARS-COV-2) isolated from Venezuelan patients."
The molecule is, as he added,
a derivative of ursolic acid
and the studies, according to his data, "show 100% inhibition of virus replication in vitro."
On the other hand, the executive vice president, Delcy Rodríguez, reported that the authorities have located
423 new cases of covid-19,
bringing the total number to 89,565.
Of these, 398 are community "and 25" imported "by returned migrants.
However, it did not break down the cases by state or report how many people have died in the last 24 hours from the disease caused by the new coronavirus.
