I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we pray that if it be Your will, one of these drugs/compounds would be the cure for COVID19, but ultimately You are the great physician and we rely on You for healing.

Researchers have identified dozens of drugs and compounds, some experimental and others already approved by health authorities, that may be effective in combating the CCP virus.

The Epoch Times refers to the novel coronavirus, also called SARS-CoV-2, as the CCP virus because the Chinese Communist Party’s coverup and mishandling allowed the virus to spread throughout China and spark a global pandemic.

In a preprint study not yet peer-reviewed, published on March 22 on bioRxiv, the research team indicated it found hundreds of “high confidence” interactions between SARS-CoV-2 virus proteins and druggable human proteins.

Nearly 70 substances, including both drugs in clinical trials and those already approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as well as preclinical compounds, have the potential to impact the virus, the team found.

“Among these, we identify 66 druggable human proteins or host factors targeted by 69 existing FDA-approved drugs, drugs in clinical trials and/or preclinical compounds, that we are currently evaluating for efficacy in live SARS-CoV-2 infection assays,” the team wrote.

The fact that the human proteins, or host factors, are impacted by existing drugs and experimental compounds makes it more likely to identify “effective molecular targets” that potential antiviral therapeutics based on these drugs or compounds could hit.

“The identification of host dependency factors mediating virus infection may provide key insights into effective molecular targets for developing broadly acting antiviral therapeutics against SARS-CoV-2 and other deadly coronavirus strains,” the researchers concluded.

The list includes chloroquine, which kills a parasite that causes malaria. The drug can also interact with a human protein called the sigma-1 receptor, the same one the CCP virus attacks.


President Donald Trump has referred to chloroquine optimistically in terms of potential effectiveness against the virus.

Chloroquine, or hydroxychloroquine, is approved by the FDA for treatment of malaria, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis, but not for COVID-19, the disease caused by the CCP virus.

Last week, the FDA approved chloroquine and remdesivir to treat patients with COVID-19 under the “compassionate use” framework.

This lets doctors use experimental treatments or medications that have been approved for other ailments to treat COVID-19 patients. Under this model, medical practitioners are required to share all patient info regarding administration of and response to the drug, thereby helping inform ongoing trials and regulatory initiatives.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said the drug’s potential effectiveness against the virus was based anecdotal evidence and that clinical trials were needed to bear out the hypothesis.

Former FDA commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb, told CBS News that the study that looked at chloroquine involved around 20 patients, and only six cases saw benefit.

“And the benefit that they showed was that they decrease the amount of virus in their noses when you did nasal swabs in those patients,” Gottlieb said. “So it could very well be that the drug is reducing viral shedding, but having no impact on the clinical course of those patients. So the data on that is very preliminary.”. . .

Heavenly Father, You are mighty, holy, worthy of our praise and the Great Physician. The USA is in a terrible crisis right now. Yes, as a nation we have stepped outside of Your boundaries – with abortion, homosexuality, and human trafficking, to name a few. God, in Your mercy, please help us. People are dying from Corona virus every day. We can’t survive without You. Please intercede, Heavenly Father, and we’ll give You the glory.

I believe we intercessors should not blame anyone for this. We dont have to state in the prayer point targeting China and sounds like blaming them. Instead, we intercessors ought to pray for all nations. Let’s not be biased.

Why don’t you look at what’s in front of you. Do you think that God put this virus on earth to destroy mankind? NO! He put it here to wake us up. Have you noticed that when things are going good hardly anyone prays? But when something goes off kilter everyone runs to God. Like when a child falls down and runs to mom for confort and first aid.
Now, do you think that God put all these plants on our planet as a decoration? No! He put them on earth to help man. I am really getting tired of lineing big pharma’s pockets with my money. Billions and billions of dollars waisted on man made chemicals. Most of them are poisonous to humans. This is man playing God. WAKE UP PEOPLE. Study your Bible. It’s all there. Look at the plants study them and learn what they can do for you. Stop lineing these these money grubbing billionaires pockets with your hard earned money. I pray for everyone in the world daily. Pray without ceasing. Amen.

Yes people are dying from this virus.

It is a deadly killer. The flu virus which is a influenza virus not a coronavirus kills over 20000 people each year.

We need to use our words carefully as these words have power.

It is concerning but not alarming that we are going through this.

As we interact with each other we need to be armed with the facts but not let our emotions overwhelm our reason.

People are dying but not as excessively as the common influenza virus which eclipses this death toll by at least 10 times.

If we take the recommended precautions social distancing washing our hands or using hand sanitizer as well as coughing and sneezing into our elbows etc we will be through this quickly.

Do not feed into the hysteria please choose our words carefully as they can spread fear or faith.

God bless you and your families through this unprecedented situation.

lets take a lot of vit C in the meantime. Everybody. Maybe Drs. can give patients vit. C via IV. I have read it is being used in China and is helping.

    Hi. Vitamin C Drips and or vitamin drips are used regularly in the naturopathic world here in the US. 😁
