The UK is making progress with the development of antiviral drugs

“We know the vaccine program is making a big difference (…), but we still do not know how safe we ​​are,” British Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned at a news conference.

The government has announced that it will form a working group to identify treatments for patients with Covit-19, to prevent the spread of infection and speed up recovery time.

The goal is to quickly explore and develop new antivirals in pill form that are already ready in the fall.

The previous day, the UK had recorded four deaths, but weekend data fell again due to processing delays.

From April 14 to 20, the number of deaths decreased by 23.7% and the number of infections decreased by 10.2% compared to the previous seven days, with a daily average of 27 deaths and 2,476 cases.

The official total has increased to 127,307 confirmed deaths from 4,393,307 cases since the onset of the epidemic.

In total, 33,032,120 people were immunized with the first dose, of whom 10,425,790 had already received the second dose, administered between three and 12 weeks.

The Govt-19 epidemic has caused at least 3,031,441 deaths worldwide, resulting in more than 141.9 million infections, according to a report released by the French company AFP.

In Portugal, 16,951 people died from 831,645 confirmed diseases, according to the Directorate General of Health’s latest bulletin.

The disease is spread by a new corona virus detected in late 2019 in the city of Wuhan in central China.
