Players can cure a Zombie Villager and turn it into a normal villager. To do this players need to do the following:

Players need to use a Golden Apple on a Villager who is inflicted with effect of Weakness. Players first need to use either a splash potion of weakness, lingering potion of weakness, a tipped arrow or splash effect from creeper explosions.

After the Weakness is put into effect, giving a Golden Apple to them will cure them. This may take upto 3-5 minutes.

After being cured, if the Zombie villager had a profession then the player can get massive discounts on the items it sells. This effect also spreads on to the other Villagers in the area but the discount is less.
