Drug Dexamethasone Can Save 35% Deaths From Covid

Dexamethasone s a steroid drug used to reduce inflammations. It can save some very ill Covid patients on oxygen and ventilators from death. It was studied in a trail study in UK with a 35% success rate. Dexamethasone reduced deaths of people on ventilators and by 20% of the very ill on oxygen.
It will not be used outside hospitals. It is cheap drug that doctors have used since 1960s. It is in their medicine cupboards and can be usually globally now. Doctors are used to prescribing it. It is not a new drug. It is not a cure but it will reduce deaths and interesting for researchers trying to find a vaccine.

This medication is a corticosteroid hormone (glucocorticoid). It decreases your body’s natural defensive response and reduces symptoms such as swelling and allergic-type reactions.
