In a major breakthrough in the tests and research being done to device a treatment and find a drug to cure the deadly Coronavirus, it has been announced by UK experts that a low-dose steroid treatment dexamethasone can help fight the virus.

The drug is part of the world's biggest trial testing and has been found that it cuts the risk of death by one third for patients on ventilators and one fifth for those on oxygen. As said by researchers if it was used to treat patients in the UK from the start an additional 5,000 lives would have been saved.

Being a low cost drug, this will be a great benefit for poorer countries with massive number of Covid-19 patients. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that this is a remarkable British scientific achievement.
