Two Coronavirus Patients In ICU Taken Off Ventilators Days After Taking Experimental HIV/Breast Cancer Drug

After receiving an experimental drug used to treat HIV and breast cancer, two coronavirus patients in New York City have been taken off ventilators and are out of intensive care according to reports.

The World Health organization, Private and corporate pharmaceutical companies all over the world are fighting day and night to develop the right vaccine to tackle Coronavirus that has killed thousands globally, but while the search goes on, doctors are using specific drugs already in the market that could help fight the virus.

According to a report by Daily Mail UK, the drug, leronlimab used to treat Breast cancer and HIV, was delivered by injection twice in the abdomen to seven critically ill coronavirus patients, and out of the seven, two were removed from ventilators and two showed significant improvement.

According to the report not yet approved by the WHO or FDA, studies suggest that leronlimab calms the overly aggressive immune response — known as a cytokine storm — that frequently leads to lung inflammation, pneumonia and potentially death of coronavirus patients.

A doctor running the drug trial told the company, CytoDyn, that if it continues to show promise, it could get emergency approval by the FDA as soon as possible.

For the first patient, a person in their 70s, improvements came almost immediately and all but one patient showed recovery.

‘One of [the patients] self-extubating,’ meaning they removed their own ventilator tube, ‘and was alert an hour or two after treatment,’ CytoDyn president Dr Nader Pourhassan told DailyMail.com.

‘The doctor said that this patient, in the last three days before treatment, was intubated and extubated and every time they intubated him, within four to six hours they immediately had to intubate him again.’

‘CytoDyn is set to give the drug to another 75 patients with mild or moderate coronavirus, and if they, like the first set of patients, show signs that ‘the cytokine storm goes down and the patient is not having a problem clearing the virus…it could get FDA-approval very quickly,’ said Dr Pourhassan.

A Nigerian lady has narrated her experience with a lecturer who ‘threatened to fail her in his course if she fails to meet him in a hotel’.

According to @_Faves, the lecturer threatened to make sure she returned for an extra year in school after she refused giving in to his demand for sex following their meeting in a hotel.

The Twitter user who revealed that she got same threats on her exam day, said the lecturer was unable to grade her exam as he got suspended and handed over to another lecturer in the school.

She tweeted;

I’ll never forget the day a lecturer threatened to fail me if I did not meet him in a hotel in school. I was so afraid, so I planned with my twin to put my phone on recording. I took a backup phone just in case and started recording immediately

I got to his door. The man was like; “I’m not saying I want to fuck o, but you will be my baby girl. I like your shape, your breast, your height. You need to be taken care of and maybe when you finish school, we will marry.” Were was already planning future with me.

He told me to sit, I sat on the chair, he came close on another chair and held my hand. All this while, he was reducing his dialogue and I did not know why. Later, he said; “where is your phone,” I said it’s in my bag. He took the bag and put it in the wardrobe and closed it.

Were. Like he had done it before. Then he started touching my thighs. I wore denim on denim, so if he even wanted to rape me, it will give him stress. Idiot that said he is not having sex o, said he wants to see how big my breasts are. I should undress. Omo, I don dey shake.

I told him that i don’t want to do it and the next thing he said was; “maybe when you have extra year, you’ll change your mind.” Lmaooooo. I now told him that I cannot do anything without being drunk.

Ode, his prick was already rising. He ordered for Smirnoff Ice, but no one answered the call, so he went out of the room himself. Omo, I went to pick my bag; found out that he put clothes on it. I just sprinted out of the room. I had already put my mind that I will fail that semester. He even reminded me on Exam day. Lol… we sha wrote exam finish

There was a previous riot in the school and some lecturers who were part of ASUU protested, so the VC suspended them. This mad man was among. So, another person marked his paper. I got 67 B in the course… lol…. God saved me sha.
