Gilead says drug helped moderately ill coronavirus patients

Gilead Sciences says its experimental drug remdesivir improved symptoms when given for 5 days to moderately ill patients with COVID-19. People who took remdesivir were 65% more likely to show improvement at day 11 than people who received standard care. Patients who got a 10-day course also had ’favorable’ odds of improvement compared to standard care— but they were not statistically significant

It stops or slows down virus replication so that the body can turn off the immune switch that the virus flips on... Plaquinel a red herring and was given with this drug it's this drug that helped ppl escape covid disease

Not saying at all it's not worthwhile but this isn't going to stop deaths.
