Head of WHO Tedros Gebreyesus called the new cure for coronavirus a scientific breakthrough. The drug was developed in the UK.

According to RIA News, such conclusions were made on the basis of the first clinical trials of a dexamethasone steroid in the UK. After using this drug, the mortality of patients on mechanical ventilation devices decreased by 35%. Among those who were connected to oxygen, mortality decreased by 20%.

This is the first medicine that has shown a reduction in mortality among severe patients. Packaging a drug costs only about 430 rubles. The British government has already approved a dexamethosone steroid for treating patients with coronavirus. WHO is waiting for a more complete analysis of the data in the near future.

In Russia, Avifavir was approved for the treatment of patients with coronavirus. It is not available for sale, but its first consignments entered the country's hospitals. Moreover, in the network scammers have already begun to "sell" a new medicine
