Drug trials are underway on nearly 1,000 Coro patients in 68 hospitals in the U.S. and around the world. It has also been tested in China, the epicenter of the virus. Patients using this drug are relieved more quickly than patients using other drugs. The first phase of the drug trial in the United States has been completed.

In the second phase, to increase the benefits of remedivir, it will have to be used in a trial with other drugs. Time Magazine learned from conversations with dozens of doctors, health experts and the pharma industry involved in the first trial of the drug on the patient how a new therapy has raised hopes amid the epidemic.

The trial began at the Providence Regional Medical Center in Washington. On January 20, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention urged the hospital to admit the country's first Covid-19 patient to the hospital. Dr. "He didn't push us," says George Diaz.

Researchers are still searching for answers to some of these questions Dr. Professor of Medicine at Stanford University. Aruna Subramaniam said, "The best thing is that we know that we can help patients with this medicine. We studied a trial of Gilead.

Research from NIAID and Gilead indicated that this helps to eliminate the infection at an early stage. In many trials, it has become clear that remedivir helps patients recover faster.

This drug has been successful against many viruses The American Gilead pharma company Ramdesivir was first tested for Ebola, another deadly viral disease. The company continued Ebola research.
