Hi,
Can malaria antibodies kill Coronavirus?
In Sindh Pakistan most cases are asymptomatic. Very few cases are there in Africa.
They are saying that O blood group is the least affected by Corona and O is the group that was evolved by nature to fight malaria. There are also chances of Chloroquine, which fights malaria, helping Corona patients.
Maybe these malaria antibodies could be used to fight Corona.

Antibiotics cannot kill Coronavirus.

There have been some breakthroughs with Chloroquinine, which our editorial team has covered extensively here: https://www.livescience.com/chloroquine-coronavirus-treatment.html

But there's also incredible danger in jumping the gun, and people have already ended up killing themselves by not taking the issue seriously. https://www.livescience.com/coronavirus-chloroquine-self-medication-kills-man.html

Research and investigation is well underway, and the public will be alerted as soon as there are treatments / vaccines available. Though there may be quite a wait until then. In the meanwhile, follow procedures for keeping safe, keep self-isolation, and practice social distancing. These are the primary tools we have in our arsenal right now to prevent the spread.

Malaria monoclonal antibodies cannot target Coronavirus since they are specific for one particular epitope on the target antigen (Plasmodium falciparum sporoizites) for neutralization.

And yes, it is better to wait for the results of the on-going researches in drug discovery and vaccine development for COVID-19. This will prevent adverse reactions that are highly detrimental or undesirable effects to the health of patients.
