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.

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.

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.
