Dr fauci said at best it's suspect but the French study of 1000 doses should not be ignored. Only the sceptical would look at this as not effective. They are saying 100% effective. I don't know just listening to information

Another potential drug for coronavirus in the works.


Scientists are reporting promising results for a new drug to treat COVID-19.

The drug is known as EIDD-2801. It works by interfering with the coronavirus' ability to make copies of itself once it infects a cell. In that regard it's similar to remdesivir, a drug currently being tested in COVID-19 patients.

EIDD-2801 has one major advantage over remdesivir: It can be taken as a pill, whereas remdesivir must be given intravenously.

Researchers from Emory University in Atlanta; the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; and Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn., first tested EIDD-2801 in cells cultured in the laboratory. When those tests were encouraging, they gave the drug to mice that had been infected with coronaviruses that cause either SARS or MERS, and showed that it reduced the amount of virus in their bodies. In addition, the mice gained weight, another good sign.

The researchers say they were unable to test EIDD-2801 in mice infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 because right now most mice are not susceptible to infection with that virus.

A paper describing the new results appeared online today in the journal Science Translational Medicine.

Vanderbilt University Medical Center virologist Mark Denison, one of paper's authors, says there's already been a lot of research on other coronaviruses, so he's not worried that testing the drugs in animals will turn up any problems.

Timothy Sheahan of the University of North Carolina, another one of the paper's authors, said in a press release that "in normal times, testing in non-human primates would be the obvious next step on the road to human testing. Since these are not normal times, this could be skipped and evaluated under compassionate use and established clinical trials in people. The goal is to directly attack the virus, lessen symptoms, decrease pathogenesis and save lives."

On blacks dying at higher rates, I also believe they have higher rates of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Those three are the things I have seen documented in all states as the top 3 or 3 of the top 5 factors involved in the majority of deaths.

That's what Dr Birx and Dr Fauci said last night as well, underlying health issues.

Vitamin D may play a role in this as well, as I understand lighter skin makes vitamin D faster than darker skin. I mentioned to my mom weeks ago to increase her vitamin D dosage as a way to help boost her system.

The West coast has done an admirable job dealing with this, they were some of the first to implement legit mitigation strategies and the data suggest it's worked thus far.

I'm wondering if the 15 min test is being used on every visitor to the White House.

This reporter has me laughing a bit at her actions. If you're worried so much you have a mask on, what's the point of constantly adjusting and putting your hands near your mask?

At one point a photographer walks by and she leans away from him.

Now she's messing around on her phone taking photos?

Think about that for a minute...comparing a 500/1 odd numbers to 98%.

Shaking my head at the ignorance here from the Congressman in Alabama. Note, the tweet was from February 26th.
