America buys up a less effective drug

Regrettably I saw the news feeds a couple of days ago and have forgotten the prices. But America has bought up all the stocks, for maybe 3 months of Remdesivir, which costs something like $2,340 per patient per course of treatment.

Yet there is another off ticket drug which was stated to be more effective, and only costs around $5 per patient.

Duh.

Another shot self in the foot moment..

Dexamethasone is readily available everywhere has been around for 60 years, and is cheap.

You can't make this stuff up.

Re: America buys up a less effective drug

If ah remember correctly, either Trump or someone close to him, can profit from that drug.
