Remadecivir has no effect in reducing mortality of Kovid-19 patients


The report states that four drugs in connection with Kovid-19 had no effect on reducing mortality, smooth breathing and duration of hospitalization. In fact, remadecivir, hydroxychloroquine, lopinavir / ritonovir and interferone were tested on 11 thousand 666 adults in 405 hospitals in 30 countries.

Tests on Remadecivir, Hydroxychloroquine, Lopinavir and Interferone


Researchers say that the use of hydroxychloroquine and lopinavir has already been discontinued due to patients not getting any benefit. “Remedesivir, hydroxychloroquine, lopinavir and interferone did not seem to have any effect on hospitalized Kovid-19 patients as indicated by overall mortality, recovery of respiration, and duration of hospitalization,” the trial said. It is worth mentioning that in the midst of the epidemic, there were huge discussions of four medicines on Kovid-19 patients.


The World Health Organization on Friday announced the results of a six-month long comprehensive medical examination. The purpose of the test was to find out how effective the drugs currently available can be in the treatment of corona virus infection. The results showed that the drugs used during the trial of either remadecivir, hydroxychloroquine, lopinavir / ritonavir and interferone had little or no effect on Kovid-19 patients.
