Remedesivir is not magic bullet that decreases mortality: AIIMS Director

AIIMS Director Dr. Randeep Guleria on April 19 said that Remedesivir is not a magic bullet that decreases mortality. "It's important to understand that Remdesivir isn't magic bullet and isn't a drug that decreases mortality. We may use it as we don't have an anti-viral drug. It's of no use if given early to asymptomatic individuals/ones with mild symptoms. Also of no use, if given late," Dr. Randeep Guleria said. "Remdesivir should only be given to patients who are hospitalised, had fall in oxygen saturation and have infiltrates on the chest X-ray or CT-scan," he added.

Steroids useful only in moderate to severe illness when oxygen saturation falls: AIIMS Director

AIIMS Director Dr. Randeep Guleria on April 19 clarified that the steroids are of no use if it is given on day 1 to COVID patients, it is used only, when Oxygen saturation falls down. "It is of no use if steroids are given on day 1. They are useful only in moderate to severe illness when oxygen saturation is falling," the doctor said. "In last 1 year of COVID management, we have learnt that 2 things are most important - drugs and timing of drugs. If you give them too early/late, it would cause harm. Giving cocktail of drugs on day 1 can kill your patient and would be more harmful," he added. "Recovery trials showed that steroids will benefit but it's also important to know when they're given. If given early before your saturation (O2) falls, it has harmful effect. COVID patients who got steroids early had higher mortality than those who didn't," he further added.
