Clinical trials led by Britain confirmed that two cheap drugs – dexamethasone and hydrocortisone – increase the odds of Corona patients’ survival.

An experiment led by the University of Oxford revealed that dexamethasone reduced deaths by a third in those who were placed on ventilators, and by a fifth in those who used oxygen alone.

And researchers at Imperial College London found that hydrocortisone also improves survival in critically ill patients.

Research indicates that most intensive care patients who have become seriously ill due to “Covid-19” are improving dramatically since spring.

And at the height of the first wave in April, a patient admitted to intensive care with coronavirus had a 50/50 chance of survival.

Now the ratio is nearing 80/20 – according to the latest figures released by the National Center for Auditing and Research in Intensive Care in Britain.

These figures show that of the 211 patients admitted to intensive care this fall, 165 (or 78%) were discharged from the units. Although medics warn that it is too early to tell if this trend is permanent.

The President of the Intensive Care Society, Dr. Janesh Suntharalingam, warned that it is too early to say whether the results of intensive care for “Covid-19″ are improving, but there is “ good reason for hope. ”

Oxford University scientists hope that the authorities will approve the vaccine early in the new year, according to the London Times, as this will entail a mass vaccination campaign.

A government source told the newspaper that the campaign could take as little as three months – though others believe it will take longer.

The study also revealed that hydroxychloroquine did not perform well in its most recent tests, and that the malaria drug preferred by US President Donald did little to treat critically ill Covid-19 patients.

Studies from Spain and the University of Minnesota revealed that this last drug didn’t offer much benefit to people with milder infections either.

The mad scramble to find a treatment that could save the lives of those infected with the Coronavirus led to a series of experiments that raised hopes, but finally it became clear what drugs might help stop the increasing death toll from the Corona virus.
