Yet another reason why flattening the curve is important. The "die for the economy" people act as though everyone who dies from the virus is fated to do so and it's just a matter of when. But if we keep finding treatments that reduce mortality then a low infection rate will save lives.

'90s roidball was entertaining at least, the roidbeast action movie genre got a bit long in the tooth before flaming out, IMHO.

wait, so we're not doing hydroxycholoroquine anymore? Next thing you know we're not injecting Clorox anymore.

It's almost like MLB realized this and started juicing the baseballs instead

They're generic, and cost pennies.

Hey, every life is sacred, but money is more sacred'er. I'm sure the 'job creators' are salivating at the idea of monetizing those dying from COVID.

Wrong kind of steroids (I know, that's the joke.)  I

The drug gives a modest survival improvement in the sickest of patients, proven by a suitably large controlled study. We're happy to have a treatment option that will help some people, but don't listen to anyone who claims it's a cure.

THIS is what I've been waiting for. Vaccine, shmaccine, maybe in a year or three. I want effective *treatments*, and this looks to be the first.

Of course it's not a cure, but with so many Americans too in-duh-pendent to wear masks and socially distance, treatments like this are the best we can hope for, and will save lives.

But you have to have a brain to understand something like that.

Hence
Death tax.

Tort reform.
Death panels.

Dexamethasone is also used to treat, wait for it...Lupus.

Hopefully the orange Cheeto won't glam onto this and doom its use this time.
