Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Health Dr Zafar Mirza has said that steroid dexamethasone should only be used to treat critically ill Covid-19 patients.

Speaking to anchorperson Shahzeb Khanzada on Geo News, he advised against employing the drug to treat asymptomatic or mild patients of the novel coronavirus.

"This drug has side effects. It should only be used by doctors to treat hospitalised, critically ill, dying patients," he said.

  1. Dexamethasone(decadron) easly available mostly price 30 rs but after announcement it will reach (30000) being as a Pakistani its our habit

  2. Yes.. this is needed to be heard!
    Because as all steroids are, its basically an immuno-suppresent. So, it should be known that when a patient is declared critical, its because of his overactive immune system is causing a cytokine storm which eventually can result in death. So this drug actively suppress the response of immune system which can stop cytokine storm in the lungs. So if this drug is used by mild symptomatic patients it will be counterproductive.

  3. ڈالر کے لالچ میں تفتان بارڈر سےکرونا اٹھاکر پورے ملک میں پھیلانے والے دعویٰ کررہے ہیں۔
    اگر کروناوائرس نہ آتا تو ملک ایشین ٹائیگر ہوتا۔

  4. چینی کی طرح اس کو مہنگا کردیں جناب۔۔۔ پاکستانی قوم کو انسان نہ سمجھئیے گا کبھی آپ۔۔۔۔

  5. Why the drug stores r not told not to sell them without Drs prescription.This is crime in every civilsed country.But here in pak. u can get them on ur free will.There must be strict rules n regulations regarding this insanity.

  6. Dexamethasone brand name decadran we using it normally from decades even to childeren in minor to sever upper/lower infections . Life saving drug

  7. “Dexamethasone does not appear to help people with milder symptoms of coronavirus – those who don’t need help with their breathing”
    Exact words from British research
    Allah ka wasta ha isay mat stock kar lena

  8. One of the cheapest medicine available in the market. Around 40 pharmaceutical pakistani companies are manufacturing it. supply demand imbalance is not possible for this medicine.
    If shortage still occurrs then responsible persons should be hanged

  9. Well, it showed mortality benefit in any covid patient with hypoxia, not just critically sick ones on vent/ARDS/in cytokine storm. Plus you never know which patient will progress to the inflammatory phase and which patient will not. May be using it early might prevent patients from going into the inflammatory phase who were destined to go into it. It’s not that big deal of a drug really, just a simple steroid.

  10. Pakistan Zindabad! I can bet that people will not get this drug easily which was readily available till last week.
