Health Ministry adds Dexamethasone in the treatment of COVID19

The Indian government has made changes on the treatment of protocols for COVID19 patients, allowing commonly a used steroid called “Dexamethasone” in moderate to severe stages of illness said by the union health ministry.

Dexamethasone is the first drug to show improved survival in severe patients of SARS cov2 virus in recent trials by Oxford University.

According to the revised ‘Clinical Management Protocols for Covid-19’,  dexamethasone which is already used in treating lung infections besides in a wide range of conditions for its anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressant effects can be used as an alternative to methylprednisolone which already existed in the treatment guidelines.
