"With unfettered #capitalism we inevitably find ourselves with the worst drugs, priced at the highest amounts, hoarded by those who need them the least."

To make matter worse, #Remdesivir is a drug that “has had its development costs paid for, in large part, by independent donors like governments and ministries of #health in #China, the #WHO, and the #US #government.”

6 mg Dex daily (up to 10 days) vs usual care

- 6425 = total patients randomized in study
- 2104 (32.7%) = patients randomized to Dex
- 4321 (67.2%) = patients allocated to usual care

#CoronaVirusUpdates #COVID19 #SARS_CoV_2
TY for HU @jeremyfaust!
28 day mortality rate:
- 454 (21.5%) of all patients allocated Dex (N= 2104) died
- 1065 (24.6%) of all patients allocated to usual care (N=4321) died

Dex reduced deaths by:
- 1/3 in patients receiving invasive mechanical ventilation

#CoronaVirusUpdates #COVID19 #SARS_CoV_2

- 1/5 in patients receiving oxygen without mechanical ventilation

- Did not reduce mortality in patients not receiving respiratory support at randomization

I had a discussion with Hon Chief Minister of Maharashtra Shri @OfficeofUT regarding current #Covid_19 situation in state & the challenges faced by the administration & preventive measures to provide relief to various sections. I have conveyed my suggestions on following topics.
The next academic year will be delayed due to the situation of #Covid_19 and lockdown. As a result, the number of students & teachers will decline. The income of educational institutions & technological institutions is likely to get adversely affected.
Some educational institutions are likely to collapse or close down due to financial losses. A study group or committee should be appointed to take timely measures to ensure that students,teachers & educational institutions are not harmed & process of education is not disrupted.

Yesterday, 3/5/20, 2676 confirm Corona infected cases were identified. This is highest detection in a single day.

My concern here is - Even after 40 days of LockDown if there is a growing rate in cases, then LockDown might not be the answer for India.

This question is important because LockDown has been extended twice now. And it doesn't seem like only LockDown can contain the virus.

This question on LockDown will stare at us more cruelly on 17th May .. when, the number of cases in India will Equal the cases in China.

Some people have been repeatedly saying that - The Curve has Flattened. Well, gentleman, A Flat Curve means you have ONLY postponed the date of your infection. You are yet not safe from infection.

The vaccine is ofcourse not there, the only thing we can do is test more.

SPECIAL REPORT: Despite the #Trump administration’s incompetent handling of the pandemic 58 percent of the public blamed #China for the spread of the #coronavirus within the #UnitedStates; only 42 percent blaming their own government.
By: @AlanRMacLeod…
50 percent of Americans wanted Trump to get “tough” with #China, compared to 17 percent who favored a softer approach.
According to the Harris poll, it is working. “Blame China” could turn into calls to “bomb China” sooner than we think.
#CoronavirusPandemic #CoronaVirusUpdates
Another driver of anti-Chinese sentiment has been the media. Even when #China does something unquestionably positive, such as donate planeloads of medical equipment to European countries, CNN presented it as a scheming Beijing merely trying to “deflect blame” and “curry favor.”

A friend has just been released from Mbagathi hospital 👏👏She is now free of #coronavirus
So People, this is a happy me and a salute to health workers in Kenya.. This is why:
She had some symptoms and went for a test.
She was told the results will take some time and was told to check the next day.... So she got up the next day and went to work the following day. Meanwhile, her results came out positive and the guys called in a team from @MOH_Kenya
While at work, she started getting calls from strange numbers... They introduced themselves, asked where she was and asked her to stay put (She says they were really nice on phone). They did not tell her why they were looking for her though
