AIIMS Director Dr. Randeep Guleria on April 19 said that Remedesivir is not a magic bullet that decreases mortality.
"It's important to understand that Remdesivir isn't magic bullet and isn't a drug that decreases mortality.
We may use it as we don't have an anti-viral drug.
It's of no use if given early to asymptomatic individuals/ones with mild symptoms. Also of no use, if given late," Dr. Randeep Guleria said.
"Remdesivir should only be given to patients who are hospitalised, had fall in oxygen saturation and have infiltrates on the chest X-ray or CT-scan," he added.
