We would all love for there to be a miracle cure for COVID-19. And there are many talented researchers and pharmaceutical companies working around-the-clock to find an effective therapy.
But as we do that, it’s important that we embrace science.
What do I mean by that?
Take, for example. It’s been in the news a lot lately. That’s the drug that’s been used for decades to treat conditions like malaria, or autoimmune diseases like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.
A few small studies have looked at whether it’s also effective in treating COVID-19, and the results have been mixed. So, with no proven therapies available, where does that leave health professionals like me?
That’s where science comes in.
