  • Along with remdesivir, “we’ve added dexamethasone, a very low-cost steroid, to our treatment guidelines, and we believe it’s reasonable to assume that other corticosteroids which may be more readily accessible in some places would have similar immunological effects,” Azar says at briefing held at HHS
