    That language appears to be in the tweet only, not the article.

    Anyone need a job writing tweets for the NYT?

    I think that's unlikely. In general, the longer one stays on a vent, the worse the prognosis. Being on a vent increases the risk of pneumonia, blood clots, sepsis, and a whole host of other very dangerous complications. After being on a vent 7-10 days, one usually requires a tracheostomy to help slowly wean off the vent and to prevent the risk of further infection. Typically, those that do best with a vent get intubated, turn the corner rather quickly, and then are extubated in a few days.

    The estimated manufacturing cost of Remdesivir is $9/dose.

    I'm not optimistic about Remdesivir either. Between the accidental early data release of a trial from China showing no benefit, and their continued changes to ongoing trials, it doesn't look good.

    The FDA just came out saying you shouldn't use the malaria drug. One of the issues is it can often create heart problems.

    Thanks President Trump.

    Another web site tracking treatment drugs and vaccine development. Three vaccine candidates are in Phase 1 trials.

    Trump is saying if you live in a blue state, Civd can be prevented and cured by injecting pure fentanyl three times a day.

    Yeah.

    Trump shouldn't have prescribed that drug.

    But you supported him telling people to drink disinfectants and to inject others.

    How close was his "we will go from 15 cases to zero very quickly"?

    Not hard, even for an old man like me. I had already read the release but have no idea how to add the link. (Above my pay grade)

    I just thought others would be interested. Thank you doing so. What a guy.

    Still haven't seen the full study, but here's the release. Looks like it shortens the time in the hospital (from 15 days down to 11 on the study), but no statistical difference in mortality. Shortening hospital stays is good news, but this is clearly not a game changer either.

    p= .059 is kinda sorta close, isn't it? Will be interesting to see the impact on new cases- eg when you test positive and start having mild symptoms you go on it to prevent serious complications like a tamiflu for regular flu
