WHO moves to update COVID-19 guidance after ‘great news’ in Dexamethasone study

Dexamethasone

Dexamethasone is a low-cost drug which already exists and is in good supply.

Dexamethasone was first made in 1957 and became available for use in the early 1960s.
Because it’s been around for such a long time, the drug is out of patent, which means lots of different companies can make it and it is widely available around the world.
This is particularly good news for developing countries and the World Health Organization has welcomed these trial results.
