Steroid, Dexamethasone, shown to improve survival in COVID-19: UK Study - Deal of the Month

In March 2020, the RECOVERY (Randomised Evaluation of COVid-19 thERapY) trial was established as a randomized clinical trial to test a range of potential treatments for COVID-19, including low-dose dexamethasone (a steroid treatment). Over 11,500 patients have been enrolled from over 175 NHS hospitals in the UK.


On 8 June, recruitment to the dexamethasone arm was halted since, in the view of the trial Steering Committee, sufficient patients had been enrolled to establish whether or not the drug had a meaningful benefit.

A total of 2104 patients were randomized to receive dexamethasone 6 mg once per day (either by mouth or by intravenous injection) for ten days and were compared with 4321 patients randomized to usual care alone. Among the patients who received usual care alone, 28-day mortality was highest in those who required ventilation (41%), intermediate in those patients who required oxygen only (25%), and lowest among those who did not require any respiratory intervention (13%).

Dexamethasone reduced deaths by one-third in ventilated patients (rate ratio 0.65 [95% confidence interval 0.48 to 0.88]; p=0.0003) and by one fifth in other patients receiving oxygen only (0.80 [0.67 to 0.96]; p=0.0021). There was no benefit among those patients who did not require respiratory support (1.22 [0.86 to 1.75]; p=0.14).


Based on these results, 1 death would be prevented by treatment of around 8 ventilated patients or around 25 patients requiring oxygen alone.

Peter Horby, Professor of Emerging Infectious Diseases in the Nuffield Department of Medicine, University of Oxford, and one of the Chief Investigators for the trial, said: ‘Dexamethasone is the first drug to be shown to improve survival in COVID-19. This is an extremely welcome result. The survival benefit is clear and large in those patients who are sick enough to require oxygen treatment, so dexamethasone should now become standard of care in these patients. Dexamethasone is inexpensive, on the shelf, and can be used immediately to save lives worldwide.’

Martin Landray, Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at the Nuffield Department of Population Health, University of Oxford, one of the Chief Investigators, said: ‘Since the appearance of COVID-19 six months ago, the search has been on for treatments that can improve survival, particularly in the sickest patients. These preliminary results from the RECOVERY trial are very clear – dexamethasone reduces the risk of death among patients with severe respiratory complications. COVID-19 is a global disease – it is fantastic that the first treatment demonstrated to reduce mortality is one that is instantly available and affordable worldwide.’

The UK Government’s Chief Scientific Adviser, Sir Patrick Vallance, said: ‘This is tremendous news today from the Recovery trial showing that dexamethasone is the first drug to reduce mortality from COVID-19. It is particularly exciting as this is an inexpensive widely available medicine.

‘This is a ground-breaking development in our fight against the disease, and the speed at which researchers have progressed finding an effective treatment is truly remarkable. It shows the importance of doing high quality clinical trials and basing decisions on the results of those trials.’


  1. There will no vaccine announced till at least 3% of USA plus Brazil,Russia,Germany,UK,France and Italy are infected.No vaccine will hit the market on a large scale tll the infections are at least 5% of the population.

    In India – Hindoosthan – there would be at least 10-15% infections (id.est.,symptomatics)- BEFORE THE VACCINE HITS.I expect that that there will be NO vaccine – but these predictions are,if there is a vaccine.Even if there is a vaccine,it will work on only some people !

    Indian manufacturing in the SME sector is based on labour intensive manufacturing,with maximum per sq ft utilisation of shop floors.That is the India which brings 50& of the GDP.These people have no way to survive.If they work – COVID will grow exponentialy.If Not,they die or the RBI prints currency and gives doles – and the USD/INR,crosses Rs 100. 3 years ago,these Indians demonetised,and now,they are remonetising.

    Whichever way you see it,it is doom !

    Next Doom is monsoon ! It will be a disaster of a monsoon,and there is an UNPRECEDENTED locust attack on Indian Agriculture.

    You are looking at hyper inflation, unemployment and large scale arson and anarchy.

    Already Indians are eating dead dogs

    And Indians are drinking milk spilt on the roads – with dogs !

    Indians are innovating with Ganga water and Cow urine !

    What is the Ganga ? The Holy water of the Holy Ganga

    Their PM is an illiterate,who was a Tea Vendor,whose mommy was a dishwasher.He must be hoping that he would have lost the
    polls in 2019 ! He won the polls – as he did a fake surgical strike,on his own wimpet soldiers – killing 40 of them – and then launching a fake surgical strike,on the Pakistanis.

    Before that,he had killed 1000s of Indian Muslims in InDia (whatever be the worth of the Indian Muslim).He has also destroyed the loves of 500 million Indians in the Demonetisation – and he has also killed and murdered Kashmiris. Indians think he is their messiah – so they will die with him !

    The people of his own country will lynch him – courtesy COVID.

    India is a poor,backward nation – which has to focus on poverty and inequities – no seat on UNSC.COVID is a “Ground Nihilio” event for
    India and Indians.

  2. The Future for India

    By July 2020 – the daily death toll in India – will be the highest in the world

    By September 2020 – Indians who are cured today,will be re-infected

    By September 2020 – India will rank at No.3 in Total cases

    By June 2021 – India will rank at No.1 in Number of cases

    By July 1st week 2020 – India will have the highest number of daily cases

    By October 2020 – the food supply chain will break down,and there will be food riots

    In November and December 2020 there will be a false flag operation,and the start of a war which will bury India – forever.

    If the cases in IRP – Islamic Republic of Pakistan – are not under control,by August 2020 – the cataclysm for India,could occur sooner.dindooohindoo

    It is a classic case study,of doom

    But the Indians,still have NO CLUE.There is no Cure.The Indian Fools do not get it.The Doctors are just suppressing the symptoms (or trying to – on guesstimates),in the hope that the immune system,will recover (as COVID hits the immune system – aka HIV link).Hence,the virus might still exist – and migrate to te lower tracts,or JUST RE-ENTER LATER – as there is no CURE AND NO VACCINE – to PREVENT A REINFECTION (unlike smallpox,chickenpox etc.)

    There is NO HOPE of a vaccine and EVEN IF IT COMES – the immunity potion and methodology, WILL NOT LAST – for sure.There has never been a Vaccine for a respiratory INFECTION or for an infection – which destroys immunity (aka-HIV).And so,there will EITHER be no COVID vaccine,or it will fail.

    Indians are a reservoir of diseases – a race of weasels and supines – as a consequence,of those viruses – which were not fatal.This is what led to their mental and physical slavery,for 2500 years.

    This virus is for their TERMINAL TERMINATION. I look at the wonders of nature.For 2500 years,the viruses destroyed the DNA and potency of Indians,South Asians and East Asians – and led to their slavery,to races from Colder regions,of the world – and now,this virus will terminate the South and South East Asians (by disease,hunger,civil war and anarchy).

    Cold temperatures are ideal for the Human DNA,Human Brain and Human Sexual and Physical Health.In history,the races from the Colder regions have ruled the world – always – w/o exception. Even within nations,you can easily sense the difference – say,between North and South China,North East Asia (DPRK/Nippon/Korea/Taiwan) and South East Asia.Even on matters of intellectus and theosophy or or spiritualism – North East Asia adopted Mahayana Buddhism (and see where they are) and South East Asia and South Asia,adopted Hinayana Buddhism and Hinduism (and they are in a rut)

    Look at the Islam of the Indonesians ! Is that Islam ? It is bogus ! Same for the Christians of East and South Asia !

    In essence,Indians and South/East Asians,are a race with poor DNA/genes – and a burden on the earth,and its resources (besides Thai hookers and Thai cooks).They were slaves in the past 2500 years, and will now,always be pawns – manipulated by the USA,PRC,Russia etc.The time has come to end the misery,of the Indian destitutes – mangled by the Indian State and the Indian Elite.

    Take the example of North and South America. However, South America is still a paradise compared to South East Asia.It is all about being,on the right side of the Equator.

    Indians are ALREADY treating the DEAD BODIES, as worse than Garbage !

    In 20 days from today,the health infrastructure, in India,will collapse,and people will be dying,on the roads.

    People will refuse to bury the dead – and will drag, decomposed dead bodies,:on the streets

    This ain’t “Nature at work” – because the virus is a “Thinker”. It kills NOT by disease ALONE.It combines with it chaos, riots,anarchy,civil war,hunger,starvation,economic disaster …. And it does not end there.Each of these,leads to more “incidental viruses and plagues”- due to a breakdown of the government machinery, sanitation,sewage,industrial wastes and the health infrastructure. Dovetailed with that,is the virus attacks on agriculture as the implements, complements and supplements in the agri-supply chain will disappear,and the crop infections – will increase in a geometric progression.

    A Great White Shark,with White skin and pink lips, who smoked a cigar uttered the following gospel – as his revelation,to the world – which the world seems to have ignored,or pretends to ignore :

    Allow me to present H.E.His Holiness,His Magnificience,His Opulent OmniPotence – Mr Winston Churchill

    “I hate Indians”.

    “They are a beastly people with a beastly religion,” he had said.
