Cure for Coronavirus found by Gilead

The $95 billion biotech Gilead Sciences is accelerating its effort to test a promising drug to treat COVID-19, the disease caused by the spreading coronavirus outbreak.

Gilead announced on Wednesday plans for two late-stage clinical trials. The studies will assess different doses and treatment courses of the experimental antiviral medication remdesivir in about 1,000 patients with COVID-19.

A sense of urgency has been placed on the drug industry to identify and develop vaccines and treatments to halt the coronavirus outbreak that has killed more than 2,700 people and sickened more than 81,000. Since it originated in China, the virus has spread to at least 40 other countries, encompassing six continents.

The efforts build on ongoing tests of the drug in China and the US. Gilead said these new studies would start enrolling patients in March “across Asian countries, as well as other countries globally with high numbers of diagnosed cases.”

Gilead said it would likely get the first results from some of those earlier studies in April.

The National Institutes of Health’s infectious-disease unit recently started a trial of remdesivir in the US with COVID-19 patients.

“Gilead’s primary focus is on rapidly determining the safety and efficacy of remdesivir as a potential treatment for COVID-19, and this complementary array of studies helps to give us a more expansive breadth of data globally on the drug’s profile in a short amount of time,” Merdad Parsey, Gilead’s chief medical officer, said in a statement.

Health officials and experts have emphasized the potential for remdesivir. A single case reported in The New England Journal of Medicine stirred initial excitement about the drug’s promise.

“There is only one drug right now that we think may have real efficacy and that’s remdesivir,” Bruce Aylward, an assistant director-general of the World Health Organization, said at a recent press conference, CNN reported.

America saves the day yet again. The question is, when will China start reimbursing the world for this disaster?

China wanafaa wawachwe miezi sita hii Corona iwafunze adabu. Si kila saa kukula ghasia.

Very bad news. I was hoping for at least 3 billion fatalities. No doubt there’s another virus waiting for its moment to shine, so we’ll press on.

You should not be hiding from this first initial wave of coronavirus. The absolute best case scenario for any of us relatively young and healthy people is to get the virus now before it mutates.

Remember the Spanish flu? The first wave was no more deadly than your run of the mill flu. It was the second mutated wave that killed off so many. The people infected the first time? They were immune and lived.

Tuwanze na mamayako :meffi::meffi::meffi:

Hii Corona virus ni fatal mostly to old people or those who are already unhealthy. Kama uko young and healthy, likelihood to succumb lowers even when you’re exposed. Kuna misinformation mingi sana inaspread about coronavirus. Ni homa tu kama zingine na Itakuja na iende kama swine flu. So guys, relax. Media kazi yao ni kueneza uoga juu ndio inasell zaidi.

Thought they had already said there was an Ebola treatment regime that was effective against coronavirus.

Thanos style

Banaaa mbona wamekanyagia vaccine ya mdudu for 40 years?

Luwere uncle.

Because its controlling the population of Bonobos in Africa.

Such stupid decisions of allowing a plane from a country thats severly affected comes from a population that needs to be controlled.

Wah!! Hii Goverment imetueka kwa global map ya how stupid human beings can be.

Outbreaks za Coronavirus ni lazima hapa US. Ama , how are these guys gonna recover their money
