Remdesivir drug shows promise — but it is far from a coronavirus cure

But beyond the initial optimism, the study also made clear that remdesivir is far from a cure for Covid-19.

The government-funded study found that patients who took remdesivir recovered faster than patients who did not. It improved recovery time for coronavirus patients from 15 to 11 days.

That’s similar to the effect that the influenza drug Tamiflu has on flu. Tamiflu also doesn’t cure patients quickly, but can reduce how long they are sick.
