They discovered that a class of metallodrugs currently used in the treatment of other infectious diseases is showing  to potently suppress SARS-CoV-2 replication and relieve viral-associated symptoms in an animal model.The findings provide a new and readily available therapeutic option with high clinical potential for infection with SARS-CoV-2.

SARS-CoV-2 is an emerging coronavirus that has caused over 30 million laboratory-confirmed cases and more than 1 million deaths globally of COVID-19 since December 2019.

As the process of developing an effective vaccine is still ongoing, another approach for prevention and treatment of the disease is to identify anti-COVID-19 agents from existing virus-specific antiviral drugs to repurpose their uses to target the new virus.
