Fauci: Remdesivir shows ‘clear-cut’ effect in treating coronavirus

A major new study shows that the antiviral drug remdesivir has a “clear-cut” effect in treating people with serious cases of COVID-19, top US doctor Anthony Fauci says.

Fauci, speaking at the White House, says “the data shows remdesivir has a clear-cut, significant, positive effect in diminishing the time to recovery.”

This proves “that a drug can block this virus.”

Fauci says a smaller Chinese study released separately on Wednesday showing no benefits from remdesivir was “not an adequate study.”
