There is a strong possibility that in an emergency, the United States could start using a tried and tested drug, remdesivir, against Ebola. Its usefulness has been confirmed by a prominent US expert. Dr. Anthony Fauci.
The remediation was developed by Gilead Company, which has been shown to be effective against the Ebola epidemic, and several previous studies have shown that the drug is effective against corona virus disease, COVID-19. Initially, patients with corona epidemic were given this drug, and they recovered quickly and returned to their homes.
According to Dr. Anthony Fauci a leading infectious disease specialist in the United States. About 1,100 patients across the United States have been given this drug. The recovery period of patients after this medication has been reduced from 15 days to 11 days. All these tests have been randomized and patients have been given this medicine as test. Dr. Fauci called these results very powerful.
Dr. Anthony said that although this is an improvement of 31% and cannot be considered as 100%, it has been proven that remdesivir has been very effective in preventing this COVID-19. The drug was given intravenously for ten days to sick patients who were admitted to the hospital and the trial of the drug was started on February 21.
The test also found that patients using remdesivir had a higher recovery and survival rate. Be clear, similar results have been reported in China and France and many details have been published. FDA has approved this drug on emergency basis to eradicate the pandemic COVID-19.
