About Remdesivir Injection

Remdesivir is been called ineffective, dangerous and highly expensive. Especially when compared to the most effective, safest, and least expensive medication treatment hydroxychloroquine (in varied combinations). But the Fauxci’s and the deep state couln’t allow a cheap effective treatment to be used as it would have destroyed their grand designs.

Remdesivir, Anti-viral drug & Mechanism

Remdesivir is a broad-spectrum antiviral medication and an adenosine analog. It must be administered by intravenous infusion ( IV ). The active metabolite of remdesivir stops the RNA synthesis of SARS-CoV-2. The virus is a single strand RNA which uses the ribosome of the host cell to generate polymerase enzyme. Remdesivir targets the polymerase enzyme which synthesis the nucleotide components to make the RNA strand. It tricks the virus by appearing as adenine and attaches to the strand. The nucleotides can no longer attach to this strand after this breaking the chain which stops the viral replications.

Remdesivir Injection Uses

This drug is used to treat infections from coronaviruses (such as SARS or COVID-19) in adults and adolescents.

Remdesivir injection is used to treat coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19 infection) caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus in hospitalized adults and children 12 years of age and older who weigh at least 88 pounds (40 kg). Remdesivir is in a class of medications called antivirals. It works by stopping the virus from spreading in the body.

What Is Remdesivir (RDV)?

Remdesivir is a drug that is given as an injection. It generally comes as a solution or a powder mixed with liquid and is injected intravenously into patients. However, the patients would need to undergo some kidney and liver tests before starting the drug to ensure it is safe to use.

Remdesivir (RDV) is a type of broad-spectrum antiviral medication called a nucleotide analog. It is currently an investigational drug and not approved in any country for any use.

Remdesivir is a broad-spectrum antiviral medication developed by the biopharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences.

Remdesivir doesn’t cure coronavirus. But the experimental drug, which may speed up recovery from a COVID-19 infection

COVID-19 is an RNA VIRUS. (RNA is the molecular transcription tool organisms use to build proteins using DNA instructions.) RNA viruses are dependent on an RNA polymerase enzyme to grow the RNA chain. Remdesivir substitutes this RNA polymerase enzyme, meaning the RNA can’t develop so the virus cannot replicate itself.

What Are Side Effects of Remdesivir (RDV)?

In the Ebola trial, researchers noted side effect of remdesivir (RDV) that included:

  1. Increased liver enzyme levels that may indicate possible liver damage
  2. Researchers documented similar increases in liver enzymes in three U.S. COVID-19 patients
  3. Nausea & vomiting
  4. Diarrhea & headache
  5. Skin rashes, dizziness
  6. Insomnia & ankle oedema are reported.

More adverse effects include:

  • Increases in levels of liver enzymes
  • Low potassium
  • Low red-blood-cell count
  • Gastrointestinal distress
  • Respiratory failure

If you have been given the drug and face any of these symptoms, please contact your doctor immediately. 

Final Note:

Yes, there are a lot of side effects. The Gilead press release announcing FDA approval lists the known side effects.
