A Nigerian lecturer, Prof. Maduike Ezeibe of the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike; has declared that he has found a cure for the dreaded coronavirus as well as Lassa fever. Equally important, Prof. Ezeibe had once claimed to have discovered a cure for HIV/AIDS.
Meanwhile, the Professor of Virology affirmed that his discovery can cure the novel coronavirus which is currently spreading like a bushfire across the globe. In addition, he has also expressed the confidence that his therapy can cure Lassa fever.
Prof. Ezeibe disclosed this in a statement released on Thursday, February 27, 2020.
His declaration has attracted some widespread attention in view of the rapidly spreading rate of the novel coronavirus; which originated in Wuhan, China but has presently spread to over 48 countries. As a matter of fact, Nigeria has also confirmed its first case on Friday, February 28, 2020.
Prof. Ezeibe is the Dean, College of Veterinary Medicine at Michael Okpara University of Agriculture.
Specifically, the Nigerian lecturer gave the chemical equation of the therapy deemed to be potent in curing coronavirus and Lassa fever as (AI4(SiO4)3+3Mg2SiO4-2AI2Mg3(SiO4)3).
‘‘It’s a mechanism for curing Covid -19 and Lassa fever. Electrostatic attraction would make electrically charged medicines mop pathogens which have opposite charges, is a known scientific fact; and that viruses and abnormal (infected /tumor) cells are electrically charged is now known,’’ he explained.
‘‘Covid-19 virus and Lassa fever virus (DNA viruses) are negatively charged. Small sizes of viruses enable them infect cells, inaccessible to big molecules. So, existing antiviral medicines need immunity to complement their effects but some viruses cause immune deficiency.
”As a silicate, AMS also normalises immunity and as a stabilizing agent; it enhances efficacy of antimicrobials to achieve effective treatment secondary infections.’’
The lecturer declared that the therapy would prove clinically effective in eradicating the coronavirus scourge. Further, he has disclosed his intention to make the therapy available to those infected with coronavirus; even as he urged countries whose nationals are suffering from the scourge to make arrangements for obtaining the therapy.
