US: anti-viral drug shows promise against Covid-19

Apr 30, 2020 10:55 IST

Covid-19 patients on the antiviral remdesivir recovered about 30% faster than those on a placebo, the results of a major clinical trial have showed on Wednesday. Top US scientist Amthony Fauci has hailed the drug's "clear-cut" benefit. Although not yet considered an outright cure, it represents the first time any medication has been shown to improve outcomes against the Covid-19 illness. The US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases that oversaw the trial said that it has proven that a drug can block this virus.
