    Zinc/ Coronavirus researcher

I remember that Dr. Martensen mentioned sometime in the last month that one of the biggest gain-of-function researchers had also published a study maybe 10 years ago showing how zinc helps fight coronaviruses. I can’t seem to find that study. Can someone point me in the right direction, even just to the name of the researcher? Thanks in advance!

It wasnt Zinc.. It was HCQ.   Referencing the zinc ionophore ability as the possible action of HCQ for effectiveness.  I will see if I can find it.

Yes I believe it was to do with Ralph Baric and his gain of function research with SARS-CoV  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2973827/

And Dr. Fraudci wrote in 2005 that chloroquine is effective against SARS-CoV.
