    US coronavirus patient who was treated with experimental Gilead drug ‘remdesivir’ and recovered

    US coronavirus patient who was ‘world’s first’ treated with experimental Gilead drug ‘remdesivir’ and recovered | South China Morning Post

    Man who visited Wuhan fell ill after returning home to the United States on January 15

    Doctors administered experimental antiviral Gilead drug after patient showed signs of developing pneumonia


    Five days in, the man's condition started to worsen. On the sixth day, he had to be given oxygen, and a lung X-ray showed he was developing pneumonia.
    After discussions with doctors at the CDC and the patient, Diaz got approval from the Federal Drug Administration to administer an experimental antiviral drug called remdesivir. He recovered. He was the first case of suspected coronoavirus to be treated with this new drug.

    Buy Gilead: Stock price: GILD (NASDAQ) $67.56 +0.76 (+1.14%). The market for this new drug in China will be huge.

    I had pneumonia once after coming back from a trip to FL. One of the sickest I've ever been. I didn't have the strength to take a shower or drive over to my fiance's place for Thanksgiving.
