The habit of not listening to adverse events reporting systems is not very helpful
WHO recommends against the use of Remdesivir for the treatment of Covid-19
A bit too late!!!
"The evidence suggested no important effect on mortality, need for mechanical ventilation, time to clinical improvement, and other patient-important outcomes."
The NIH has recommended it throughout the pandemic, for non-hospitalised patients:
"The Panel recently added a 3-day course of intravenous (IV) remdesivir as another treatment option"
This is the evidence they base their recommendation on:
And for hospitalized patients:
Remdesivir is associated with serious adverse events, observed since Jan 2021
The combination of the terms "acute renal failure" and "remdesivir" yielded a statistically significant disproportionality signal with 138 observed cases instead of the 9 expected."
Out of "5532 concerned COVID-19 patients", "434 (7.8%) cases were related to kidney disorders, including 327 (5.9%) reported with remdesivir."
The habit of not listening to adverse events reporting systems and disregarding real-world data is not very helpful. It causes a lot of unnecessary harm.

My working theory. If the CDC recommends it, it is probably B.S. If Pfauci supports their recommendation, it is definitely B.S. Batting close to a thousand!
