After the 1918 Influenza Pandemic which killed an estimated 30 million people, governments financed research on the Pandemic's causes. [...] Key Result Public health authorities could organize the distribution of iodine and at the same time educate the public in the effective use of iodine. Oral iodine might also boost body defense mechanisms in the upper oral and respiratory mucus.Expand
Efficacy of a novel iodine complex solution, CupriDyne, in inactivating SARS-CoV-2
TLDR
A novel iodine complex called CupriDyne® was assessed for its ability to inactivate SARS-CoV-2 and was shown to be effective in inactivating the virus in a time-dependent manner, reducing virus Titers by 99% after 30 minutes, and reducing virus titers to below the detection limit after 60 minutes.

Impact of magnesium, zinc, selenium, copper, and iodine food supplements on SARS-CoV, SARS-CoV-2 viruses and their adducts with human ACE2 enzyme: A Computational Based Investigation
In a search for drugs of the potential impact on SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2, we have chosen different forms of metal-based food supplements to investigate. We computed their binding to specific peptideExpand
