Dexamethasone drug has proved to be encouraging in the war against the corona virus. The results of Oxford University have been described as life saving for the high risk patients.
Coronavirus Vaccine: Has any drug been exposed to the corona virus epidemic? British scientists claim that dexamethasone is a great success in the war against the corona virus. An inexpensive and easy-to-use drug can save the lives of patients at high risk of corona virus. Dexamethasone is the largest part of the test released in the world. The result of Oxford University says that people who were on ventilators, the use of the drug reduced the risk of death by one-third.
Ventilator is an AAS for patients
According to the researchers, if the drug was used in the beginning of the epidemic in Britain, then the lives of about 5 thousand people could have been saved. A large number of Kovid-19 patients in poor countries could have benefited from this. Its result has shown that it has done excellent work in patients with high risk. But it is suitable for those who are on ventilator or at great risk and who need oxygen due to difficulty in breathing.
19 out of 20 patients admitted without hospitalization recover
The results revealed that 19 out of 20 patients admitted to the hospital with corona infection were cured. Although patients admitted to the hospital have also recovered but they need oxygen or other equipment. In the trial of the Oxford University team, 2 thousand patients admitted to the hospital were given medicines while the medicine was used on 4 thousand patients outside the hospital. The test showed that the risk of death in patients who were on ventilator decreased from 40 percent to 28 percent. In patients who needed oxygen, the risk of death was reduced from 25 to 20 percent.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said, "There is a fair chance to celebrate on scientific availability. We have taken steps to ensure supply of medicines. ” Professor Peter Horby said, "So far, this is the only drug that has reduced mortality. These are very encouraging results. " Another researcher, Professor Landry, is so much influenced by drug testing that he has advocated giving medicines to hospitalized patients without delay. At the same time, he also warns that people should not go out and take medicines for home because this drug is not going to help patients with mild symptoms of corona virus. Dr. Somya Swaminathan, Chief Scientist of the World Health Organization warns, "Dexamethasone should not be used on people who are not seriously ill. Improper drug use may worsen infection.-Published by The Beyond News.
