Finally a drug that reduces Covid-19 death rate: dexamethasone


Recommended Posts

Jim Marshall (not a doctor) said ...

There is now a treatment that will save lives for those who catch Covid-19 and need treatment in the ICU.

It is particularly useful in treating patients who do need a ventilator in the ICU

Dexamethasone - a common steroid, often given as a tablet.

It is not a preventative treatment - you can't take it before you get the disease.

It is cheap and widely available.

Some of our members are already taking this drug to help their bodies cope with Zytiga (abiraterone).

A doctor who took part in the trial explains:
