Scientists have officially stated that Remdesivir can be considered the first drug in modern medicine that has shown a clear effect in the treatment of COVID-19. Perhaps this particular medicine will save humanity from a pandemic. A large-scale clinical study was conducted in which patients with COVID-19 took part. They took a new antiviral drug and recovered 30 per cent faster than those patients who took a placebo.
To date, Remdesivir is not an official drug. But the drug is a potential cure for coronavirus because it has become the best against the disease for the entire period of the spread of the virus. The development and testing of this drug were overseen by the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
Researchers have officially announced that those taking the experimental drug recovered 30 per cent faster. One of the researchers, Anthony Fauci, commented: research data shows that Remdesivir has a clear, significant, positive effect in reducing the time to recover from illness.
Although the 30 per cent result is not one hundred per cent, the drug has important evidence of the concept that its components are ready to block the virus. Also, mortality when taking this drug has become eight per cent lower, which is also encouraging to scientists.
Peter Horby, an epidemiologist at the University of Oxford, believes that the scientific world should see the full results. And if the antiviral drug’s effectiveness is confirmed, it will be a fantastic result and great news for fighting COVID-19.”
