Europe endorses remdesivir as first Covid-19 treatment

Jun 26, 2020 19:10 IST

Remdesivir, an antiviral drug that has shown positive results in the treatment of Covid-19 patients in studies, has become the first drug to get approval for coronavirus treatment from the European Medicines Agency. The agency has granted conditional marketing authorization for remdesivir to treat adults and children older than 12 with pneumonia who need oxygen. While larger trials on remdesivir are still ongoing, early results showed that patients hospitalised with severe illness were discharged quicker from the hospital than those who didn’t get the drug.
