In case you didn’t know, scientific research published in the journal PLoS Pathogens back in 2010 found that ionic zinc is a powerful inhibitor of coronavirus, preventing its replication and spread.
In vitro, or cellular, tests found that zinc is helpful in preventing a whole host of RNA viruses, including influenza and poliovirus. Somehow, zinc interferes with the way that these viruses process their polyproteins, which effectively prevents them from doing their damage.
Earlier research published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) also identified zinc as a powerful weapon against SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome), which is also a type of coronavirus. In fact, the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), also known as the Chinese Virus, is said to be SARS 2.0.
