News just released says Gilead’s Resdemvir is starting to show positive, rapid results at a Chicago Hospital on treating Covid 19.



It’s early on, but we are heading in the right direction.

The good thing is the world is literally pulling all stops to get this solved. I think drug solutions will come fast. However, I’m an optimist at heart.

What are your thoughts? When do you think we will either have treatment or a vaccine for Covid 19?

I think it's impossible to say WHEN a vaccine or treatment would be available. As soon as possible would be great, obviously. :thumbup:

The larger risk is if there is a treatment that is promising, and the people in charge relax the restrictions too soon, there will be a surge in new cases, and the potential bad outcome that brings. My friend on Facebook posted this meme, and I think it applies here:

Is this a contest? What is the prize? So far, it's just speculation. Somebody will hit the answer, but now, it's a guess. :)

I know...it’s anyone’s guess. I say by September. This is only because of the world working on it coupled with fast tracking the red tape. Again, I’m an optimist.

The prize? The winner gets rich and famous. The prize for humanity is saving lives.

A vaccine that would be approved and made for the masses will not happen sooner then a year to a year and a half. The consensus of most is you have to prove it works and safety. It can short term seem to work but long term give you problems.

Taking that logic a treatment has the same problem, might work but is it safe.

I read a vaccine was already given in testing yet it is a wait and see thus accepted treatment will come first even if only partially successful. The risk is only the people trying the treatment get the ramifications of the drug versus the mass population with the vaccine.

With all that I have hope that various treatments will be proven to be effective soon. In such a short time all around the world all the greatest minds are already coming up with Possible breakthroughs.

For treatments I watch Israel carefully as throughout the years I have seen then medically in many areas lead the way.
