Coronavirus: US Buys nearly all of Covid-19 drug remdesivir - BBC News

The US is buying nearly all the next three months' projected production of Covid-19 treatment remdesivir from US manufacturer Gilead. While the drug cuts recovery times, according to tests, it's not clear if it improves survival rates

BBC, the multi billion pound organisation, still can't figure out how stereo audio works.

better use the steroid than this remdesivir, it is expensive, it was monopoly by one company and trump promote it, when trump involve it mean $$$,
500 thousand courses of remdisivir is still not enough even for the U.S. let alone the entire world and if they are right about 100 thousand a day in new infections they will run out in a few weeks as cases increase

Now will be a good idea to force the news that vaccine can be made out of plastic waste from Ocean to cure COVID, so the US will collect all, and if that will work can force the news that the radioactive waste helps against something else so that the US will collect that.
Trump is stupid enough to believe in that.

I am not surprised by that beach move from Trump and his puppets.

Someone tell me how the uks covid cases went from 313000 down to 283000 over night how can they take cases away there so stupid.
Interesting that paracetamol is recommended as a remedy that is sufficient for treatment in mild less severe cases so why all the fancy elaborate drug treatments?. err an OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE MONEY PROFIT = GREED CORRUPTION.

Remdesivir is a virtually useless drug in the scheme of things (even admitted by the BBC in this report). But the BBC always report news in the worst possible light. They look for someone to blame. In this case, the USA!

India and Bangladesh are already making generics of Remdesivir, so no need to worry. It's just the Americans screwing themselves, as per usual.
Greedy bullying America.
If the vaccine is formulated by a non-US lab, they should send the US to the back of the very long queue.

Was there anything more predictable than this?
The walking wotsit has already said that he would use an American developed vaccine as a 'weapon' to make other countries do what he wants.
Let's just hope that any vaccine will not be first by a US company. China is more trustworthy than Trump's America.

I’m pretty sure any country with as many Covid cases as the US would make the same decision had they created a new treatment. A government’s job is to protect it’s people. Anyway, what use is spending so much on healthcare if US citizens don’t get the spoils of the medical research first. A well-funded medical research program is the one benefit to not having universal healthcare.

Excellent ! Que les USA achètent tous les stocks et nous débarassent de cette cochonnerie.
Cet antiviral ne fonctionne que si sa thérapie anti-virale est appliquée dans les tout premiers jours de la maladie. Ses effets secondairs très graves sur les reins (à doses thérapeutiques normales) atteignent le 60% des patients. A part la diminution de la charge virale initiale, le remdesivir n'a aucun effet positif sur la réaction auto-immunitaire de la seconde phase de la maladie, alors que l'hydroxychlorochine y est effective, en effet c'en est la base de traitement pour lupus etc. L'hydroxychlorochine n'a pas d'effets secondaires aux dose préconisées contre le covid-19, même doublées dans l'essais Discovery anglais...
On comprend mieux pourquoi les promoteurs du Remdesivir, pour rendre leur droque plus appétissante, ont dû inventer des effets secondaires de l'hydroxychlorochine.
Notez bien que les mêmes auteurs de l'étude du 22 mai, retirée, qui attribuait à l'hydroxychlorochine les effets négatifs du virus (!), avaient publié 20 jours avant à Zürich une excellente étude sur l'origine des micro-thromboses provoquées par le virus dans le système sanguin et tous les organes, ce qui expliquait les problèmes cardiaques entre autres: donc après avoir découvert la morbidité cardiaque du virus, passés 20 jours, les mêmes auteurs prétendent attribuer ces effets à l'hydroxychlorochine ? ont-ils perdu l'intelligence, ou bien s'agit-il là d'une "extension" sanitaire de l'impérialisme américain ? notez bien qu'il ne s'agit plus d'un simple problème économique, d'âpre gain, mais de l'hécatombe de patients mal ou non traités, parce qu'on a défendu aux médecins de terrain de faire leur métier.

Believe it or not some countries and a continent did just that manage a pandemic without destroying the economy. The African Continent, South Korea, Taiwan, and New Zealand did just that treating the coronavirus without destroying the economy. The coronavirus has proven that the West does not have the best healthcare system but the very most expensive least effective healthcare system. Many third world nations have better healthcare systems that is a lot less expensive. Believe it or not you would get better less expensive healthcare treating the coronavirus in Senegal or Ghana including the cost of travel and a higher success rate.
How? Taking extreme and very early mandatory weekly testing of all citizens those that were tested negative were free to go back to work with mandatory facemasks, surgical gloves, sanitizing the workplace, regular handwashing, and social distancing with weekly work certificates proving that they are virus free. Citizens who tested positive are under mandatory quarantine will get unemployment compensation equal to their regular salaries, free at home medical treatment, free telemedicine with postal shipping of free hydroxychloroquine in combination other drugs with intravenous vitamins provided by public health authorities needed to treat the asymptomatic patients very inexpensive very early. When asymptomatic patients who have are tested negative for more than two weeks, they are given weekly work permits so they can go back to work with mandatory facemasks, surgical gloves, sanitizing the workplace, regular handwashing, and social distancing. Keep in mind at the very beginning of the pandemic people testing positive are less than one percent of the population therefore very inexpensive to treat the coronavirus.

The worst mistakes made my government public health and private health authorities.

1. Calling the coronavirus not worst then the flu.

2. Not treating asymptomatic patients until they get sick and contagious. If asymptomatic patients were treated with hydroxychloroquine in combination other drugs with intravenous vitamins within the hour of testing positive it would have prevented the coronavirus pandemic outside of China.

3. Delaying quarantines until it is too late

4. Opening the economy while the coronavirus is on the rise

5. Not using hydroxychloroquine in combination other drugs with intravenous vitamins has proven to be safe, effective, and inexpensive as in Africa that has the highest cure rate

6. Using remdesivir instead of hydroxychloroquine in combination with other drugs. Remdesivir is an awfully expensive patented drug that has been proven ineffective against the coronavirus and Ebola. Hydroxychloroquine in combination other drugs with intravenous vitamins are very inexpensive and has been proven effective against the coronavirus

7. Allowing open boarders during a pandemic

8. Not deporting non-citizens who have tested positive for the coronavirus

9. The cost of treating one coronavirus patient with remdesivir $2,340 per patient. Treating one coronavirus patient with hydroxychloroquine in combination other drugs with intravenous vitamins is one tenth the cost of remdesivir. Remdesivir is a costly and useless drug.

Remdesivir was used in the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone July 2014 it was a complete failure. Nano Silver was used to treat Ebola it was extremely successful. I wonder why Nano Silver is not used for the coronavirus.

During a pandemic it is mandatory that public health authorities have absolute authority and prioritized over private health care and private hospitals. Public health authorities must employ doctors, nurses, support, security, and IT staff with public hospitals. Allowing private health care providers and private hospitals to deal with pandemics are a disaster. The number one problem with private health care and private hospitals are medical apartheid and medical profiteering. The African Continent, South Korea, Taiwan, and New Zealand do not allow medical apartheid and medical profiteering. Public health authorities’ employees in the African Continent, India, other third world or “shithole” countries were taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure against the coronavirus worked extremely well. Coronavirus vaccines are not needed. The same should have done for high risk populations such the elderly and median age people with health problems. Hydroxychloroquine is very inexpensive so worth trying.
can you guys not put the audio in just one ear, it is quite uncomfortable
