Finally some good news? Several drugs show promise for treating covid-19. Chloroquine (and hydroxychloroquine), an anti-malarial drug, is in the news today, prominently mentioned during President Trump’s morning press conference. Research does indeed indicate that chloroquine has ‘apparent efficacy and acceptable safety against covid-19 associated pneumonia’, and has shown to help patients recover more quickly from the coronavirus. Other treatments — azithromycin, antiviral remdesivir, and Kevzara — are now thought to make a positive difference, too. This encouraging news comes none too soon, as countries around the world are now in a race against time with covid-19. Entering the hockey-stick BOOM! phase, cases are jumping dramatically and health care systems world-wide brace for the coming tsunami of seriously ill patients. Will we “flatten the curve” enough in time? We will find out very soon.
