COVID-19: Patients Getting Remdesivir Recovering Quickly, Discharged In Days by 9jamyHome: 4:32am On Apr 17, 2020
Covid-19 patients who are getting an experimental drug called remdesivir have been recovering quickly, with most going home in days, STAT News reported Thursday after it obtained a video of a conversation about the trial.

The patients taking part in a clinical trial of the drug have all had severe respiratory symptoms and fever, but were able to leave the hospital after less than a week of treatment , STAT quoted the doctor leading the trial as saying.

"The best news is that most of our patients have already been discharged, which is great. We've only had two patients perish," Dr. Kathleen Mullane, an infectious disease specialist at the University of Chicago who is leading the clinical trial, said in the video.

Trials of the drug are ongoing at dozens of other clinical centers, as well. Gilead is sponsoring tests of the drug in 2,400 patients with severe Covid-19 symptoms in 152 trial sites around the world. It's also testing the drug in 1,600 patients with moderate symptoms at 169 hospitals and clinics around the world. Gilead said it expected results from the trial by the end of the month

"We understand the urgent need for a COVID-19 treatment and the resulting interest in data on our investigational antiviral drug remdesivir," the company said in a statement to CNN. But it said a few stories about patients are just that -- stories

"The totality of the data need to be analyzed in order to draw any conclusions from the trial. Anecdotal reports, while encouraging, do not provide the statistical power necessary to determine the safety and efficacy profile of remdesivir as a treatment for Covid-19," Gilead said.

Well contracting Covid 19 isn't a death sentence. Most patients tend to recover save those with underlying health issues.
Let's hope more breakthroughs are made quickly and we'd be out soon

Kudos to the health professionals and scientists.

Things are looking hopeful but It will take months to be able to study the samples and observe any side effects and how it combines with other factors and medications.

This is a time to properly fund research in healthcare and education in Nigeria and around the world. Ours in Nigeria shouldn’t be only to be looting money and waiting for others to do the research so we can quickly consume, while our institutions languish from neglect

Okay, Lets see who is going to win the English Premier League.

That will be able to validate the potency of the new drug if we have to ignore the fact that plastics are good conductors of electricity.
