WHO adds another lifesaving drug to the list of COVID-19 medicine

The WHO has added life-saving interleukin-6 receptor blockers in its list of medicines for COVID-19. It is a set of medicines that are administered to severely or critically ill COVID-19 patients. These medicines should be given along with corticosteroids - an anti-inflammatory drug. Critically ill COVID-19 patients suffer from an overreaction of the immune system that can be harmful to their health.

This was noticed and practiced since on set of pandemic or 1st way only thing documentation and approval by WHO was not there now they realised and reviewed the list . The concern is accessibility and affordability
