Covid-19 treatment approved

This post is not skin related, but important for pubic health. Remdesivir was just approved for the treatment of Covid-19 hospitalized patients with lower respiratory tract infections. This is good news! In a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, patients who received remdesivir had a 33% shorter hospitalization (10 days versus 15 days).

This is a major step forward and I expect more FDA approvals of other drugs in the immediate future.
