Posted by in category: biotech/medical

As for coronavirus patients in serious condition, the ministry proposed – in addition to treating respiratory failure and supportive treatment – using Gilead’s drug Remdesivir, which was used in the case of Patient 16. The 38-year-old bus driver from East Jerusalem was in serious condition and the drug improved his situation dramatically, so much so that he was in good condition after the treatment.

They said that research into treating the virus is only in the research stage since the virus was only discovered some months ago.
