Steroids Can Be Lifesaving for Severe Covid-19 Patients, Scientists Report – Video

W.H.O. issues strong recommendation for critically ill patients. Dexamethasone appears to reduce deaths by 36%; hydrocortisone by 31%.

___________

“Based on the new evidence, the World Health Organization issued new treatment guidance, strongly recommending steroids to treat severely and critically ill patients, but not to those with mild disease,” writes Caryn Rabin in The New York Times. 

“Clearly, now steroids are the standard of care,” said Dr. Howard C. Bauchner, the editor-in-chief of JAMA, which published five papers about the treatment.”

“Steroids like dexamethasone, hydrocortisone and methylprednisolone are often used by doctors to tamp down the body’s immune system, alleviating inflammation, swelling and pain. Many COVID-19 patients die not of the virus but of the body’s overreaction to the infection.”

Steroids linked to a one-third reduction in deaths among COVID-19 patients

“Dexamethasone produced the strongest results: a 36% drop in deaths in 1,282 patients treated in three separate trials.”

“Hydrocortisone, tested in 374 patients in three trials, appeared to reduce deaths by 31%…”

  1. I do hope the WHO does not think that it can wriggle out of the hangmans’ noose it had put around it’s neck.

    It richly deserves to be dismembered for its heartless role in promoting mass poverty courtesy of the Covid19 scamdemic, which will undoubtedly cause millions of deaths which were absolutely all avoidable.

  2. Scientist were once upon a time people that improved life for most people. Today they are paid to do the governments bidding.

    Some honest ones still remain apparently, reminds me a little of the 6AM news on Norwegian state controlled media. They always corrected them for the 8AM news. Today there are some truth tellers remaining in Swedish state controlled media, I think all of the Norwegians are gone.

    • Budesonide inhalers are used as a preventive for asthmatics. I can tell you from personal experience that the work very well.

  3. Be very careful of anything the WHO recommends.
    I’d rather consult a different witch doctor than the one currently in control!

  4. How can you tell the truth is being told?
    When Facebook blocks it.
    Twitter deletes it.
    Google hides it.
    YouTube bans it.
    The Media censors it.
    And your Government forbids it.
    Thanks Patriot XVII. One thing you should add is ‘when Snopes debunks it’.

    You know the video I did a few days ago where I talked about the CDC’s OWN ADMISSION ON THEIR WEBSITE that only 6% of the total Covid death count in the US actually had Covid 19 as the only cause of death?
    It was banned on YouTube.
    It was blocked on FBIbook.
    And now I’ve been Snoped. In the illustrious company of the President of the USSA no less.
    Fake News!
    Except I’m looking hard at the facts according to Snopes – who, by the way, repeatedly refers to the CDC’s updated numbers as an “alleged revelation” – and I fail to see them debunking anything except the truth in the following…
    “A rumor downplaying the seriousness of the deadly virus was promoted by a group of people that included U.S. President Donald Trump […]and conspiracy theorist Jeff Berwick – who dubbed the ALLEGED change by the CDC evidence that people other than his followers were exaggerating the seriousness of the pandemic, and that everyone should be skeptical of rules on social distancing that halt the economy.”
    Fact.
    “Several inquiries included a link to the hyperpartisan, junk news website The Gateway Pundit, or a link to another conspiratorial web page that phrased the alleged revelation like this:
    ‘The CDC quietly released new Covid numbers showing those who solely died from the virus was only 6% (9,210) of the total deaths (153,504). 94% of those who died, did so because they had existing health conditions.’”
    Fact.
    “Trump endorsed the claim, essentially denigrating scientific evidence by his own health advisers, Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx. However, as of this writing, Twitter had removed the below-displayed post for violating its terms of service.”
    Fact.
    “Fueling the conspiracy theory, the CDC web page stated: ‘For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause [of death] mentioned. For deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average, there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death.’
    “That meant, yes, medical investigators believed only 6% of COVID-19 patients died from the coronavirus alone. Those patients had no reported comorbidities.”
    Fact.
    “However, it was dangerously wrong to misinterpret that fact to mean that the remaining fatalities (or 94 percent) died from health issues other than the coronavirus. Rather, most people’s underlying cause of death was COVID-19 and the virus either intensified or caused other illnesses that contributed to patients’ death.”
    What The Fact!
    You want to see more FACTS about the biggest conspiracy the world has ever seen? In today’s Lucy and Jeff Show you will see:
    Avi Yemini drop truth bombs about Australia’s police brutality and censorship.
    An NHS worker under investigation after claiming coronavirus is ‘a load of b*****ks’ and admitting she did ‘f*** all’ during the pandemic.
    A Memphis woman’s family receiving a letter that she has tested positive for COVID-19. The test supposedly took place in June. She’s been dead 7 months.

  5. A lot of older people have found that Panax Siberian Ginseng is helpful. Incidentally it is a semi-steroid that enhances stamina over time. Taken in small quantities it appears to increase longevity in old people by about 10 years give or take. Unlike Steroids, it is far milder with less side effects.

  6. “A Mississippi county coroner said his state’s death count from coronavirus could be incorrect, adding that possible misreporting has led to “unnecessary fear in the public.” Joshua Pounder, coroner for DeSoto County in northwest Mississippi, included a breakdown of all causes of death in the county in July on his Facebook page.

    The Mississippi State Department of Health demands that anyone who has a positive coronavirus test at the time of their death is reported as a COVID-19 death without acknowledging the fact that “many of them were terminal prior to a [positive] test,” Pounder said.

    Pounder’s office reported 144 deaths in July, and he attributed the highest number of deaths to heart conditions, cancer, lung or vascular diseases and strokes. Of the 11 causes of death, coronavirus was not among them.”

    Gee, I’m sure that’s the only error in the count, aren’t you?
