Watch: Pharmaceutical Anti-Virals for Coronavirus or SARS? [ARBIDOL® and RIBAVIRIN]

An overview of ARBIDOL®, an Anti-influenza and anti-SARS drug along with RIBAVIRIN, a broad-spectrum anti-viral. And some concerning truths about coronavirus vaccines.

I’m including these in the Coronavirus Protection Protocol, which you will want to read.

I have not taken these, I hope not to have to, as I’ve been implementing a bunch of natural nutraceutical herbal immunity biohacks, I haven’t gotten sick during the chilly Eastern European winter and neither has my wife who is doing all the same things as me. But, I like to have some pharmaceuticals like these on hand as a last resort in case me or someone close to me were really struggling with the flu or COVID-19.

These are both sold by, they are both still in stock but I don’t frankly know how long they will be…

Arbidol — Anti-Influenza and Anti-SARS drug

Image for post
  • Developed in Russia in the 1980s
  • Cure and Prevent Acute Respiratory Diseases, Including Pneumonia and Bronchitis.
  • Treats Chronic Bronchitis and Pneumonia.
  • It’s effective even against mutated viruses — it binds to a protein that is universal in RNA viruses.
  • Given to young children, pregnant women and the elderly.
  • More effective than Tamiflu.

Dosage and Usage

  • Prevention 200mg/day. Treatment duration — 10–14 days.
  • Flu treatment 200 mg 4 times/day (every 6 hours). Duration — 5 days.

Side Effects

According to Wikipedia

No known overdose cases have been reported and allergic reactions are limited to people with hypersensitivity. The LD50 is more than 4 g/kg.

130 scientific papers and 16 clinical trials are published on Pubmed. There are four recent studies on Abidol as a Coronavirus treatment, from a recent review Clinical Features of 69 Cases with Coronavirus Disease 2019 in Wuhan, China.

Arbidol treatment showed tendency to improve the discharging rate and decrease the mortality rate.

There are over 60 scientific papers on Arbidol’s anti-influenza effect, to quote from the most recent

Arbidol, a broad and potent antiviral molecule, incorporates rapidly into membranes.
These data suggest that the potent antiviral effects of Arbidol are mediated at least in part through its membranotropic effects, likely giving place to the formation of perturbed membrane structures. These modifications interfere with proper membrane functioning and should be responsible for its broad antiviral activity.

Watch the lecture The Arbidol Story: How a Clinically Used Antiviral Drug Developed for Influenza Virus Inhibits Hepatitis C, Ebola, and Zika Virus by Stephen J. Polyak, Ph.D.

Ribavirin — Broad spectrum anti-viral

  • Wide Spectrum Of Activity Against Various DNA And RNA Viruses.
  • Works against both DNA and RNA viruses.


400 mg twice daily.

Side Effects

This is a riskier drug, from Healthline

Ribavirin can cause many serious long-term side effects. These effects may not occur right away because ribavirin can take up to four weeks to build to its full level in your body. When ribavirin’s side effects do appear, though, they can last longer or be worse than side effects from other drugs.

+1000 clinical trials published on Pubmed and +100 scientific papers specifically about Ribavirin and Coronaviruses — there were two clinical trials done treating SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome).

My current take on the Coronavirus pandemic

I think it’s getting a bit blown out of proportion by the governments and the media. Some meta-analysis data are coming out indicating that the mortality rate is quite low, even in elderly people if they are healthy. I’m no longer worried that it’s going to kill millions of people in the United States.
I think it’s going to blow over in a few months and everybody is going to go back to their normal lives — I do, however, worry that it’s going to come around next year and be worse. I know that viruses typically mutate to become less virulent over time, but I have reason to believe that it’s going to be worse in the future…

The rush-job vaccine that big pharma rolls out will not be safety or placebo tested but there will be a huge global push to get almost everyone vaccinated, many places the state will totally disregard informed consent and will just force the population to be vaccinated. Vaccines tend to cause immunosuppression, this is why you always hear people say I got my yearly flu shot, but then I got the flu anyway!

I expect that the coming vaccine will work more or less (current flu shots only work about half the time) for the current COVID-19 strain, BUT the virus will mutate and the vaccine will render multitudes more vulnerable to the life-threatening pulmonary effects of the virus. A paper published in the esteemed journal PLOS ONE warned that previous SARS coronavirus vaccines resulted in pulmonary immunopathology.

These SARS-CoV vaccines all induced antibody and protection against infection with SARS-CoV. However, challenge of mice given any of the vaccines led to occurrence of Th2-type immunopathology suggesting hypersensitivity to SARS-CoV components was induced. Caution in proceeding to application of a SARS-CoV vaccine in humans is indicated.

Perhaps you’re thinking…

Jonathan, don’t be a silly conspiratorial anti-vaxxer! Scientists on television are always telling us that vaccines are “safe and effective”. You have the right to your own opinions but NOT your own science. I believe in science.

I also believe in science, but I’ve read enough to understand that there’s a lot of bad science out there. Do your best to research science and evaluate the evidence instead of just listening to (make-up embellished) “experts” on television but there’s a tremendous signal vs noise problem in science. We may not all be qualified to understand complicated science but we all have the rational capacity to ask Cui Bono? — Who benefits?

“Everyone on the planet is expected to hold their breath, metaphorically speaking, and wait for a future vaccine that will, by my predictions, end up hospitalizing many and leading hundreds of thousands of high-risk individuals (diabetics, smokers, drinkers, the frail elderly) to their early demise because these are the people who do not develop sufficient antibodies following vaccination… I penned a prior report, extrapolating from published flu studies, which predicts that 6/10ths-to-1.3% serious side effects after mandated coronavirus vaccination among the nation’s 72.6 million senior adults would hospitalize 435,000–943,000 and a subsequent 1.4% mortality rate would then result in 54,202–111,493 deaths…”

Expect Chloroquine to be demonized in the coming weeks and months because it seems to be a highly effective solution for more serious Coronavirus cases and it ONLY costs $5.30. Big pharma will make unprecedented profits, tens if not hundreds of billions of dollars, off a Coronavirus vaccine, this year and EVERY subsequent year as the virus mutates seasonally. Big pharma and their propagandists in media, academia, science, and politics really don’t want a cheap, unpatented drug saving lives and assuaging the global panic. Big Pharma has such a consistent track record of prioritizing their astronomical profits over public health (which the regulating agencies enable — see the Opioid crisis, for example) that I urge everyone to be super skeptical of whatever high priced product they roll out to treat COVID-19.

Before the Coronavirus held the world in suspense, I worried that Candida Auris would be the next civilization threatening pandemic. It’s a scary bug! Ever since I watched the classic movie Outbreak, I became more and more convinced that the greatest threat to our species was not an errant asteroid but disease pandemics. The “Spanish Flu” killed so many because of the mass movements of troops during World War One and thanks to globalism we all need to fret a bit when an Ebola outbreak happens in some forlorn corner of Africa. I predict that the next apocalyptic pandemic, that kills millions (or billions) will not be due to a single virus, like COVID-19. I can foresee Coronavirus overwhelming hospitals resulting in a supply-chain armageddon, that renders populations bereft of antibiotics needed to fight more mundane infections. With the healthcare system overwhelmed we will see a resurgence of other strains of infectious bacteria, Ebola and who knows what else

When the current crisis seems to wane I urge everyone to take their bio-prepping more seriously than ever, for the calm will be, I fear, not the end of this tribulation but the eye of the storm of a hurricane that will crash over civilization with mounting virulence.
