Coronavir is one of the first drugs in Russia, but also in the world, which does not fight the complications caused by SARS-CoV-2, but fights the virus itself, according to a statement from the pharmaceutical company R-Pharm, Reuters reports.

A clinical study showed improvement in 55 percent of outpatients on the seventh day of Coronavir treatment, compared with 20 percent treated with standard etiotropic therapy, meaning treatment was the cause, not the symptoms. R-Pharm states that there is a significant difference over 14 days.

By day five, treatment had eliminated coronavirus in 77.5 percent of patients taking the drug, the company said.
