Scientists from the Pennsylvania State University have developed a new treatment that allegedly reduces COVID-infections by 95 percent in 12 hours. According to Penn State News, the new treatment uses a deficient version of COVID-19 that destroys the actual virus in infected patients.

The scientists said they created the defective interfering virus in a lab, stating it replicates three times faster than the actual COVID-19 strain and suppresses the infection. However, they added that further experiments are still needed before it can be promoted as an antiviral treatment.

As a result, the actual COVID-19 virus becomes unable to reproduce and dies out under pressure by the immune system. The new treatment is slated to be available as a one-time inoculation of COVID-infected patients.
