The Italians talked about the Russian remedy for the virus, which caused a stir at home

Two Italian tourists who visited Moscow told the public about the “famous Russian medicine for coronavirus.” The video was published on the Web and caused unhealthy excitement in Italy, where the 2019-nCov (COVID-19) infection is rampant, taking more than 2 thousand lives.

It should be noted that in the video the Italian demonstrates the packaging of the drug "Arbidol", calling it the medicine for COVID-19. After that, this video became “viral” and began to spread rapidly on social networks.

March 17, 2020 to the representative office of the Russian news agency RIA News several Italian citizens have already asked in Rome about the existence of a “miraculous pill from coronavirus” in Russia.

The video was shot by two Italians on March 15, 2020 at the Sheremetyevo Airport (Moscow). However, the authors were not very worried about maintaining their anonymity. One of them even showed his ticket for the flight Moscow - Rome, where his details were indicated.

The Italians bought several packs of Arbidol in one of the pharmacies located at the airport. After that, they said that they now know the answer to the question why in Italy so many people died from coronavirus.

We don’t have this medicine, but they have it.

- said one of the Italians.

From the video it can be assumed that Italians are really convinced that the presence of Arbidol is the main reason for the small number of cases of coronavirus infection in Russia. It is not known, which led to similar conclusions by Italians. But in the video they really say that Arbidol is a “famous remedy for all coronaviruses." Moreover, clarifying that "Arbidol" has been used in Russia for more than 40 years.

It should be recalled that before this, the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) of Russia admitted violating the advertising of the drug "Arbidol", in which it was positioned as an effective tool against COVID-19. Therefore, video of Italians can be a provocation.

    Virus and antiviral? Arbidol helps well. The rest is done by the body itself. The immune system. So it’s quite true. Hygiene, vitamins, healthy lifestyle.
    I'm sure that when a vaccine appears in a year, it will cost like an airplane! And this is really a conspiracy! Only Freddie Mercury died of scared AIDS! Everyone else from pneumonia!

      AIDS and HIV are not the same thing. Immunodeficiency is precisely the catalyst for all sores. Vomits where it is thin.
      Coronaviruses were before, just they were allocated in a separate group from SARS only in 1965. Each year, 12% of all respiratory infections are coronaviruses, of which more than 40 species are isolated. Covid-19 is almost a copy of SARS, but mortality is slightly lower and virus resistance is higher. Both are suspected of genetic engineering.

    Arbidol is one of many fuflomycin, it has long been known to everyone related to medicine. Two Italian freaks were purring. Only. Today, there are NO antiviral agents proven to help treat coronavirus, only symptomatic treatment.

      It will be correct to say that there is no medicine against most viruses, they die only with the cells in which they live. The only effective antiviral agent is our body’s immune system, which simply prevents viruses from entering the cells. Immunostimulants can be more or less effective, a placebo group is always present in test groups, so: take care of your body, help it, do not interfere and do not stuff vain stimulants, it cannot constantly be in antiviral stress, it always goes after stimulation phase decline protective properties.

        Not certainly in that way. There are antiviral drugs that work well for certain viral diseases. For example, the same HIV - thanks to the famous “cocktail”, people can live with the virus for decades without getting AIDS directly. And not only. There are also vaccinations against certain viruses - for example, hepatitis A and B. But against most - yes, the hope is only on the immune system.

    I wonder why no one suggests creating an international commission of inquiry to investigate the situation with the coronovirus. There are suspicions that someone modified it and decided to conduct field tests. Investigations are carried out on Skripaly, Russian hackers and other nonsense. There is a pandemic, a recession, and at least someone suggested.

      The virus studies "who needs it." If they dug up anything, politicians keep these facts for behind-the-scenes pressure. Assanja upekli, the media are controlled. In the United States, there are info-breakthroughs on this topic, but at the core of it is "freedom of speech under the sauce of democracy." On top of that, can you imagine what would happen if, for example, documents emerge on the connections of American biological laboratories with the covid and the Pentagon? This is a nuclear attack.

        The Chinese quite seriously believe that viruses will be the weapon of the Third World War and they are preparing for this at an accelerated pace: they are building laboratories with the latest equipment (one of these laboratories is located in Wuhan, more precisely, a whole center) and are training thousands of specialists to work in these laboratories, while simultaneously developing and implementing methods of combating epidemics, in particular - this epidemic of coronavirus is very positively regarded by the Chinese military in terms of testing and testing measures to limit the spread of the virus among the population, protect against it, etc. Moreover, in China they know for sure that this epidemic is caused by "artificial "a virus, and most likely they know exactly who the" zero "distributor was, but they don't say that, for obvious reasons.

    This is pure conspiracy theology. And people want to know who is who on this planet.

    By the way, not Italians, but Chinese were the first to tell about the benefits of "Arbidol".

        No "conspiracy", this is where this virus came from:

        Article November 13, 2015
        A successful laboratory experiment to create a hybrid form of bat coronavirus that can infect humans has raised concerns among scientists about the unpredictable consequences of a mutant virus leak. The discovery and controversy surrounding it is reported by Nature News.

        American biologists created a "chimera" from the Chinese horseshoe bats virus, known as SHC014: its surface protein was transferred to the SARS virus living in the lungs of experimental mice (to simulate human infection). Scientists have proven that the SHC014 virus already has all the necessary tools to bind to a key receptor for human cells. The experiment confirmed the hypothesis of the possibility of direct human infection with bat coronaviruses.

        However, other virologists doubt that the conclusion justifies the risk of the experiment: scientists have created a new virus that multiplies perfectly in human cells. Moreover, they continued their work even after in October 2014 the US government introduced a moratorium on funding research for influenza viruses, SARS and MERS (an exception was made for the project).

        The authors of the study do not agree with this position: if not for the experiment, no one would have known about the threat of the SHC014 virus. All scientists were sure that he was not able to infect humans, and only experience with transplantation showed that the bat virus SHC014 had already overcome key obstacles and learned how to penetrate cells.
