Cuba developed a preparation many years ago that reduces the symptoms of Covid 19. The drug Interferon Alpha 2B from BioCubaFarma is produced in Cuba and China and has also been used for a long time against carcinomas, hepatitis B and dengue. Interferon Alpha 2B paralyzes the virus in the destruction of the body's own cells. Another drug currently in use has reduced mortality to zero in 2 months.
