Angela Burns MS – the Shadow Health Minister in the Welsh Parliament – has welcomed the announcement today (May 26) about the UK-wide introduction of Remdesivir as a treatment for some people with Coronavirus.
Trials in England have shown that, for patients exhibiting certain criteria caused by Coronavirus, Remdesivir can bring about a swifter recovery.
Mrs Burns said:
"This is welcome news, and while we should consider to all treatments for this virus, we must always remain aware that there are no 'magic bullets' to treat this, nor any other illness.
"However, it is a step towards to beating this dreadful virus, and I look forward to its introduction here in Wales, and the results from this, and I call on the Health Minister to make sure that there is no bureaucratic delay to its deployment."
