Small molecule compounds that inhibit COVID-19 infection (Protoporphyrin IX (PpIX), Verteporfin): Inhibiting the binding of SARS-CoV-2 to ACE2

A group of Fudan Univ. has shown in vitro that the FDA-approved drugs (Protoporphyrin IX (PpIX), Verteporfin) effectively inhibit the infection of SARS-CoV-2.
This is because these compounds bind to ACE2, inhibiting the binding of SARS-CoV-2 to ACE2.

Clinical trials in vivo are expected.
