JACKIE: AND BREAKTHROUGH IN THE JACKIE: AND BREAKTHROUGH IN THE RACE FOR TREATMENT, NEW DATA FROM GILEAD SHOWS ANTIVIRAL DRUG REMDESIVIR’S REDUCES THE RISK OF DEATH IN SEVERELY ILL COVID-19 PATIENTS, HERE NOW IS FAMILY EMERGENCY MEDICINE PHYSICIAN AND FOX NEWS MEDICAL CONTRIBUTOR DOCTOR JENNESS, ALWAYS GREAT TO SEE YOU ON THE PROGRAM, I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THIS TREATMENT COMING OUT FROM GILEAD BECAUSE NOT ONLY DOES THE STOCK MOVE BUT WALL STREET GETS VERY EXCITED ANYTIME THERE IS NEWS OF A POSSIBLE TREATMENT IN THE PIPELINE AND THAT OF A VACCINE AS WELL IT MEANS THAT WE CAN GET BACK TO BUSINESS AND LIFE CAN GET BACK TO NORMAL, THE QUESTION IS GILEAD’S DRUG, HOW QUICKLY A PATIENT THAT IS SEVERELY ILL START TO RECEIVE THE THERAPY

>> THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION BECAUSE THERE IS A SHORTAGE OF THE DRUG GLOBALLY BUT FORTUNATELY OUR PRESIDENT ACTUALLY SECURED 100% OF REMDESIVIR FOR THE MONTH OF JULY IN 90% OF THE SUPPLY FOR AUGUST AND SEPTEMBER, THIS DRUG IS USED FOR THOSE WHO ARE HOSPITALIZED, THOSE WHO ARE ILL EITHER ON VENTILATORS — CAN YOU HEAR ME OKAY? THOSE WERE ON VENTILATORS REQUIRE OXYGEN, WHAT THE DRUG REMDESIVIR DOES, USED TO HELP STOP AND BLOCK THE VIRUS FROM LOCATING, STOPPING THEM FROM INVADING OUR BODIES SO WE DON’T BECOME ILL AND HOSPITALIZED IN THE LATEST DATA SUGGEST THAT 74% OF PATIENTS WHO RECEIVED THE MEDICATION AND IV FORM HAD RECOVERY BY DAY 14 VERSUS 59% WHO DID NOT RECEIVE THE DRUG, THEY DID NOT RECOVER BY DAY 14, THEY JUST RECEIVED THE STANDARD OF CARE, IT WAS SHOWN TO HAVE A REDUCTION IN MORTALITY BUT FURTHER STUDIES ARE REQUIRED, WE NEED MORE TEST TO DETERMINE IS THIS TRULY BENEFICIAL VERSUS WHAT WE CALL PLACEBO EFFECT, IT IS ALSO BEING USED WITH OTHER DRUGS, DECADRON WHICH IS AN ANTI-INFLAMMATORY AND RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS INFORMATION AS WELL THERE IS GOOD OUTCOME SO FAR FROM THE LIMITED DATA THAT WE HAVE AND ALSO IT IS NOT THE ONLY DRUG THAT IS BEING TESTED AND INVESTIGATED PRE-WE HAVE THE STEROID, WE ALSO HAVE THE CONVALESCENT PLASMA AND ALSO ANTIBODIES WHICH ARE BEING INVESTIGATED ULTIMO DRUGS BEING TESTED INSTANTLY ENCOURAGING NEWS MOVING INTO THE WEEKEND >> I WENT AND BROUGHT ANOTHER CONVERSATION A LITTLE BIT AND LOOKING STATS FROM THE CDC, THE FIRST ONE I WANT TO PULL OUT FIRST ONE I WANT TO PULL OUT SHOWS THE RATE OF COVID-19 AS WE KNOW, IT IS GOING PRETTY MUCH STRAIGHT UP THERE WITH RESPECT TO THE SPIKING CASES THAT WE HAVE SEEN IN THE ADMINISTRATION WILL ARGUE WHILE WE ARE TESTING MORE, THAT IS WHITES GOING UP, OTHERS WOULD ARGUE THAT WE ARE SEEING MORE TRANSMISSION OF THIS ACROSS THE COUNTRY BUT THE MORTALITY RATE WHILE EVERYBODY TALKS ABOUT HOW IT’S BEING DECREASED, I WANT TO SHOW YOU THE FIGURES FROM THE CDC IN WEEK 2669% IN WEEK 27 IT HAS COME DOWN TO 5

5%, THAT IS THE 11th STRAIGHT WEEK THAT THE MORTALITY RATE HAS COME DOWN, WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE VIRUS WITH RESPECT TO HOW IT SPREADING ACROSS THE COUNTRY THE ADMINISTRATION HAS SAID EVERY LIFE LOST IS VALUABLE IN THE GOAL IS TO GET THAT TO COME DOWN EVEN FURTHER SO WE CAN MANAGE THIS AND WE DON’T DESTROY YOURSELVES IN THE PROCESS WITH EVERYTHING ELSE THAT IS HAPPENING WITH THE ECONOMY YOUR THOUGHTS ON HOW QUICKLY WE CAN DO THAT WITH THE DRUGS THAT WE ARE WATCHING >> YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT, WERE HAVING A PERCENTAGE ON THE COUNTRY BUT IT’S ONLY IN CERTAIN STATES, CALIFORNIA, ARIZONA, TEXAS AND YOU’RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT, THE EFFECTS OF KEEPING ECONOMY SHUTDOWN CAN BE DETRIMENTAL FOR PATIENTS AND PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY THAN THE LOCKDOWN ITSELF BECAUSE WE HAVE TO REMEMBER 600,000 PEOPLE DIE EVERY YEAR FROM HEART DISEASE AND CANCERS AND NOT GETTING THEIR VACCINATIONS ARE NOT GETTING THEIR PREVENTATIVE FOLLOW-UPS WITH THEIR DOCTORS, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT THE MORTALITY RATE IN FIGURE WHAT THAT TELLS US, LESS THAN 1%, BUT WE STILL NEED TO MAKE SURE THAT WE DON’T CONTINUE TO HAVE THE SURGES IN OUTBREAKS BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH IT’S ONLY IN A FEW STATES RIGHT NOW, IT IS PUTTING A HUGE BURDEN ON THE HOSPITALS AND ICUS, SOME OF THESE STATES ARE REACHING ICY HOSPITAL CAPACITY AND STRETCHING THE DOCTORS AND NURSES THIN, HAVING THESE MEDICATIONS SOONER THAN LATER ARE DETRIMENTAL, THEY ARE ALL STILL UNDER STUDY, UNDER INVESTIGATION, WE CANNOT RUSH THEM BY HAVING MULTIPLE TOOLS, THE REMDESIVIR, PLASMA, CERTAIN AUTOIMMUNE DRUGS ARE BEING INVESTIGATED, IN ADDITION TO THE VACCINE WHICH HOPEFULLY WE MAY HAVE BY THE END OF THIS YEAR END HAVE BY THE END OF THIS YEAR END BY THE END OF THIS YEAR THAN EARLY NEXT YEAR NOVA VAX RECEIVED $16 BILLION BY OUR GOVERNMENT TO PRODUCE 100 MILLION DOSES OF VACCINE HOPEFULLY BY THE END OF THIS YEAR, ALL OF THIS TOGETHER, HOPEFULLY WILL ERADICATE OR HOPEFULLY WILL ERADICATE OR CONTROL THE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS

WE CANNOT JUST LOOK AT THE MORTALITY RATE, THE MORTALITY RATE SHOULD NOT BE CALCULATED IN THE MIDST OF THE PANDEMIC RATHER THAN AFTERWARDS BUT IN THE MEANTIME WE NEED TO FOCUS ON PREVENTATIVE MEASURES OF COVERING YOUR FACE, HANDWASHING, PHYSICAL DISTANCING, CLEANING AND DISINFECTING AND THAT SORT
