Not a vaccine, but there is now a peer-reviewed study regarding the effectiveness of Ivermectin, a drug used to treat lice and scabies, which apparently reduced mortality by 75%.
Scabies drug could cut Covid deaths by up to 75%, research suggests (msn.com)

Iíve heard that before, usually from the tinfoil hat crowd, who also told me that this was just the flu, or that it would disappear on November 3rd. Ivermectin is the main ingredient in my dogís Heartworm medicine. That said, I donít want to dismiss it. I hope that this is true, and one beef flavored chewy will help people recover. Itíll be interesting to watch.

Merck may be having better luck with therapeutics than they did with vaccines...

More info on the Merck drug (molnupiravir). Sounds like it might be a game-changer, basically take a pill for five days. Stopped the bug dead in early trials, they obviously will need larger trials before getting too excited over this.

Suggested as a means to deal with small outbreaks once the large-scale pandemic spread is over.

Plasma transfusions innefective as a therapeutic. It was used on an emergency/experimental basis until they could conduct formal trials, which didn't pan out...

Eli-Lily antibody combo therapy reported 87% effective at preventing hospitalization/death in at risk patients in phase-3 trials. The only deaths were in the control group.

Also assessed that this efficacy applies to covid variants.

FDA has issued EUA for the drug combo.

Default So far itís in vitro only

...but it looks logical from a molecular modeling perspective:

An excerpt:

Quote:
Researchers at the University of Texas at Austin, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in the USA have found that hepatitis C virus (HCV) protease-inhibitor drugs can inhibit SARS-CoV-2 and work effectively alongside remdesivir.

Their study, which was published in the journal Cell Reports, sheds light on the potential of drug combinations to stem viral transmission and treat patients with COVID-19. It also shows that four drugs used to treat hepatitis C synergize with remdesivir to make it up to ten times more effective at inhibiting SARS-CoV-2 in cell cultures

South America is having some success with chlorine dioxide, however it needs a bigger study.
