    Default Coronavirus: Remdesivir Is No Miracle Cure

    While Remdesivir reduces the mortality rate and the duration of the illness COVID-19, it's no magic remedy. Now a prematurely leaked WHO study confirms earlier research results.

    Interesting. I was poised to post a similar article; here is an excerpt:

    "(CNN)In a study it described as both conclusive and disappointing, the World Health Organization said the antiviral drug remdesivir has "little or no effect on mortality" for patients hospitalized with coronavirus and it doesn't seem to help patients recover any faster, either.
    Until now, remdesivir has been the only drug that appeared to have specific effects for coronavirus. It was the only drug with an Emergency Use Authorization for Covid-19 from the US Food and Drug Administration.
    "Results of the WHO study have not been published in a peer-reviewed medical journal. But WHO posted them to a pre-print server.
    The WHO study reviewed remdesivir and three other repurposed drugs: hydroxychloroquine, the HIV combination of lopinavir and ritonavir and interferon. None of them helped patients live any longer or get out of the hospital any sooner, WHO said."

    This is extremely disappointing. One less anti-viral medication to treat COVID-19. Initially, it seemed so promising. But, I'm confident the brilliant researchers, scientist, and medical professionals will figure it all out eventually.
