I’ve just seen that biologic drug users are going to be included in the 12 week self isolation instruction, and will receive a letter. I’m taking Tocilizumab on a weekly basis, and have been reading about the research on this drug. Roche, the manufacturer, has been testing it on severe Covid 19 patients, with excellent results. Therefore I am currently feeling that , maybe, I am less likely to contract the disease. Of course I will still remain isolated for the 12 weeks but I do feel a little more confident of staying clear of anything nasty.
I wonder if there are any scientists reading this that might throw some light on this matter. My thoughts are that they are testing it as a recovery drug, not a preventative drug, which I would require at this stage.
