Scientists Find Vegetable Antivirus to Fight Corona Virus Variant Covid-19

Suara.com – The Delta variant is one of the most dominant variants of the Covid-19 coronavirus, which is highly contagious and renders many therapies ineffective. In fact, this variant of the corona virus is also known to reduce the efficacy of the Covid-19 vaccine.

Therefore, experts continue to emphasize the need to control the Covid-19 corona virus that is proactive and able to fight the Delta variant. Now, they have found a new, plant-based antivirus to fight all variants of the corona virus, including the Delta variant.

Previously reported from Times of India, scientists from the University of Nottingham, UK observed that the Delta variant was more infectious than the other variants which were capable of higher replication and multiplication.

In addition to the high transmission rate, the Delta variant is also responsible for causing reinfection and breakthrough cases. In coinfection with two different SARS-CoV-2 variants, the Delta variant also increases the multiplication of its co-infected partners.

A UK-based study also found a plant-based antiviral that is effective against the Covid-19 coronavirus and its variants. This plant-based antiviral has been shown to have a remarkable effect against the Delta variant.

A new natural antiviral drug called thapsigargin (TG), was recently discovered to block other viruses, including the original SARS-CoV-2. As it turned out, the results were equally effective against all newer variants of the Covid-19 coronavirus, including the Delta variant.

In their previous research, the team showed that plant-derived antivirals can trigger an innate immune response of broad-spectrum, host-centred antivirals, even in small doses. This natural treatment is also very effective against 3 main types of human respiratory viruses, including SARS-CoV-2.

In a new study published in the journal Virulence, a team of researchers stole an idea of ​​how well the Alpha, Beta and Delta variants could reproduce in cells relative to each other as a single-variant infection.

They also stole to know how well the three variants of the Covid-19 coronavirus caused coinfection, which is a condition when cells are infected with two variants of the corona virus at the same time. The research team also wanted to know how effective TG was in blocking this variant of the coronavirus.

The Delta variant also showed the highest ability to proliferate inside cells, being able to spread directly to neighboring cells, its amplification rate at 24 hours of infection was more than 4 times that of the Alpha variant and 9 times more than the Beta variant.

In the case of coinfection, the Delta variant increases the multiplication of the coinfected partner. Coinfection between Alpha and Delta or Alpha and Beta variants also provides multiplication synergies, where the total new virus output is greater than the number of infections of the corresponding single variant.

Therefore, this plant-based antiviral pill is a drug specifically designed to help the body fight viruses and can be used for preventive treatment.

Moreover, there are definitely more people who believe that natural-based antivirals are easy to find to prevent the Covid-19 corona virus, in addition to vaccinations.

In the presence of this plant-based antiviral, all SARS-CoV-2 variants are highly susceptible to TG treatment. A single pre-infection priming dose of TG effectively blocked all single-variant infections and each coinfection was greater than 95 percent compared to controls. Likewise, TG was effective in inhibiting each variant during active infection.
