Remdesivir may be a highly effective antiviral against SARS-CoV-2, according to a new single-patient study. At first, the patient was treated with hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, which had little effect. The patient then commenced a ten-day course of Remdesivir.
The researchers found that within 36 hours, his fever and shortness of breath had improved and his nausea and vomiting ceased, adding that rising oxygen saturation allowed him to be taken off supplemental oxygen.
