A cheap drug called Dexamethasone (currently in use for various illness as mentioned in the last paragraph of this post) would save life in Severe cases of Covid19 when people are in the ventilator... and at a time when people need oxygen...

It is estimated that 5000 lives could have been saved in UK alone, had the drug been identified earlier...

However the drug does not help for mild cases...so you need not buy and stockpile.......😊. Let it go to people where it is badly needed.πŸ™

Current use of Dexamethasone :

Dexamethasone is currently used to treat conditions such as arthritis, blood/hormone/immune system disorders, allergic reactions, certain skin and eye conditions, breathing problems, certain bowel disorders, and certain cancers. It is also used as a test for an adrenal gland disorder and is available in plenty across the world.

Dexamethasone is not a novel drug. It is an often-used steroid with powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Dexamethasone falls under a broader class of drugs called corticosteroids, which in turn has two sub-classes: glucocorticoids and mineralocorticoids. Glucocorticoids have anti-inflammatory activity. Mineralocorticoids regulate electrolyte and water balance in the body.

Dexamethasone is a glucocorticoid drug and its action is generic. It is administered for various conditions, including arthritis, immune system disorders and allergic reactions of the skin, eyes and ears.
