ZINC (& antibiotics): it was ALWAYS zinc that was the key player in 'early treatment' algorithms to combat COVID virus especially in initial viral replication phase, IVERMECTIN & HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE

by Paul Alexander

were ZINC ionophores as zinc transporters across the host cell membranes; without ZINC, all was useless; ZINC & antibiotics were critical especially as to the florid pneumonia late COVID

antibiotics had key anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties along with anti-bacterial (DOXY etc.)

Thus Quercetin, hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin were ionophores for zinc, zinc was what disturbed and impacted viral replication impacting RNA dependent-RNA polymerase’s role in viral replication:

‘RNA‑dependent RNA‑polymerase (RdRp) and 3C‑like proteinase (3CLpro) are two main enzymes that play a key role in the replication of SARS‑CoV‑2. Zinc (Zn) has strong immunogenic properties and is known to bind to a number of proteins, modulating their activities. Zn also has a history of use in viral infection control.’
