While taking measures against the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19) around the world, the search for drugs or vaccines against the epidemic in more than a hundred countries continues. The remdesivir medication was tried in a 79-year-old patient with coronavirus in Italy, and it was announced that the patient responded to the treatment.
According to the news in the British Daily Mail newspaper, the patient whose name was not disclosed, who was treated with the drug developed within the scope of the fight against Ebola 10 years ago, was discharged after 12 days. According to the same report, a female patient in the USA, whose horn virus tests were positive and her condition was critical, responded to Remdesivir’s treatment. Remdesivir, which was originally developed to combat Ebola, did not give good results in clinical examinations, and it was found to be effective against Mers, another coronavirus infection, in 2012.
According to World Health Organization (WHO) data, 80 percent of those caught in coronavirus can survive the disease without the need for special treatment. However, it is known that people experience respiratory problems when the disease is severe.
Those who have received chemotherapy treatment against cancer and the elderly who have different ailments before are considered as the most risky groups.
