The disease is fast ravaging China and other Asian countries, with death toll in the continent now close to 1000, with thousands already infected.
Ezeibe is said to be a scientist and inventor of medicine for curing HIV/AIDS and the Medicinal Synthetic Aluminum-magnesium Silicate (MSAMS).
The professor introduced his invention to the public in February 2018, in Umuahia, Abia state.
Ezeibe revealed that MSAMS has been effective in the treatment of diseases caused by virus.
The professor of Small Animal and Clinical Virology, said that MSAMS has electrostatic attraction between opposite charges.

“The drug, MSAMS, is not just against HIV/AIDS, it is against every disease caused by agents that are electrically charged because we have developed a mechanism of action for the drug.
“This is a novel one that has electrostatic attraction between opposite charges. So, HIV, like every other virus, happens to have electrical charges. Other viruses, including the so-called Lassa fever, Coronavirus and the rest of them are all viruses; they have electrical charges. Cancer cells and other abnormalities, they all have electrical charges.
“All these viruses that have electrical charges, our medicine is able to treat them because the medicine has both positive charged ends and negative charged ends. Therefore, it doesn’t matter the charge which pathogen has but for as far as it has electrical charge, it is effective against HIV, cancer and other viral diseases. Cancer cells are also electrically charged,” Ezeibe said.

He was emphatic that MSAMS “will also be effective against Corona because in so far as it is called virus, every virus is electrically charged.
“So, whether it (Coronavirus) is positively or negatively charged, the medicine has positively charged end which it is going to use to mop up even the Corona virus. We are telling the world that for along as these agents have electrical charges, our medicine can cure it,” he also said.
According to him, vaccines are not effective for the treatment of the viruses.
“It is unscientific for anybody to think of developing effective vaccine against HIV/AIDS because HIV attacks the immune cells which are supposed to produce the antibody against the disease.

“Anyone who has studied Infectious Bursa Disease Virus (IBDV) of chickens, like we have done in veterinary medicine, will know that it is not possible for you to develop effective vaccines against HIV.
“I did say that HIV vaccine trial was going to fail. The people who started it have accepted it cannot work.
“Nigerian scientists are calling on the world to pay to the use of electrostatic attraction between Nanoparticles and electrically charged disease agents, including HIV/AIDS, Lassa fever and Coronavirus infections, and diseases caused by abnormal cells (Cancers and benign tumours),” he added.

Ezeibe, who is the Dean at the Department of Veterinary Medicine, Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, had in 2018, announced that he has invented a drug that could cure HIV/AIDS, the Medicinal synthetic Aluminum-Magnesium Silicate (MSAMS).
Reports say he had appealed to the federal government to assist him financially, to enable him complete the clinical trial of the drug on about 37, 000 HIV/AIDS patients across the country for 10 months, which required serious funding.
However, the announcement of his scientific breakthrough was marred by controversy, as the Federal Ministry of Health accused him of flouting established methods of disclosing scientific discoveries of such magnitude.
It was gathered that till date, the government is yet to recognise the drugs, which are allegedly being used to cure HIV/AIDS, cancer, prostrate and fibroid, but has honoured the professor as an inventor.

Ezeibe petitioned the senate in April 2018, requesting the lawmakers to prevail on the federal ministry of health to investigate his claims and test the efficacy of MSAMS.
A joint committee of experts drawn by the federal government from the ministries of health and science and Technology in May 2018, interviewed him on his discovery and recommended, among other things, that funds should be provided for him to continue with his research.
