The study of remdesivir [pronounced remdeziveer] was published in May. The data are preliminary, but it demonstrates the drug is effective for the treatment of COVID19. The medication reduces the number of days people are sick with COVID19 and also reduces the risk of dying. This is really, amazing news.
Preliminary results from another clinical trial have demonstrated that dexamethasone [pronounced dexuhmethazone] appears to be life-saving for people who are hospitalized with COVID-19 and requiring oxygen [either via a nasal prongs, face mask, or a via ventilator]. This is terrific news. We are awaiting the final published report, but I very much trust these preliminary results.
