Dexamethasone: Is there a cure for the coronavirus?

Dexamethasone: Is there a cure for the coronavirus?

The Coronavirus, which started in Wuhan, China, has infected more than 8.1 million people worldwide and caused more than 440,000 deaths. COVID 19, which has affected the whole world, has infected more than 6,000 people in Nepal and 20 people have died. Of course, the good news is that Corona's fears are weakened by the long-term downturn and the economic problems she has caused, or she is forced to return to work in the crisis.

News of the vaccination and treatment of COVID 19 has raised hopes from time to time. The virus, which was discovered in December 2019, has managed to embarrass the world in a short period. Not many great studies and researches have been done in this short period. But many studies are ongoing. Tenofovir used for HIV / AIDS and hydroxychloroquine used for malaria were very popular. US President Donald Trump also made public the use of hydroxychloroquine, which has since been discontinued in the United States because of its negative effects. Recently, there have been reports of permethrin and now dexamethasone being effective.
The medicine should not be used, the immune system should be increased. So it is not uncommon to hear about the need to eat vitamin C, garlic, ginger, and yoga, and exercise. To prevent this, news of vaccine production and its study is also coming. It has also been reported that some vaccines are being studied and produced simultaneously.

Not only modern medical science but also homeopathic and ayurvedic treatment methods have explored various treatments. No matter how many experts claim to be completely cured, the world has not readily accepted it. Because the world seeks the results of the study. Now a good result has come. Probably the most infected participant in the study for COVID 19, this study showed that dexamethasone, a type of steroid available in our Nepali pharmaceutical market, was a great success.

Experts in the UK say that dexamethasone, a cheap drug available worldwide, has helped prevent serious corona infections. They say that even small doses of dexamethasone steroid can prevent serious infections. Research claims that the death rate of patients placed on ventilators is one-third and that one in five patients given oxygen is protected. Researchers at the University of Oxford administered dexamethasone to 2,000 hospitalized patients, comparing more than 4,000 patients who had not used the drug, the BBC reported. The study found that ventilator mortality rates dropped from 40 percent to 28 percent.

According to lead researcher Professor Peter Horby, it is the only drug that reduces the risk of death from infection. It is also a great success and achievement in corona treatment. However, Professor Horby has made it clear that the drug is of no benefit to the general population and is important for those with respiratory problems.

Although there has been an increase in the number of COVID 19 infections in recent times, there has been a significant reduction in the complexity of those infected. There has also been a reduction in deaths due to COVID 19 infections. Although the number of infected people is high in India, Russia, and Nepal, the death rate due to the infection is lower than in Europe and the United States. In this case, the efficacy of dexamethasone produced in our country will definitely give positive results.

Dexamethasone is a steroid that reduces inflammation caused by cavities and other causes, especially those of the pharynx and trachea, so it only benefits those with respiratory problems. It is not uncommon for the general public to avoid rage by eating this, so social distance, proper use of masks, and handwashing habits should not be forgotten to avoid COVID 19.
