Hundreds of thousands of American deaths could have been prevented…

Imagine you are in charge of the US Center for Disease Control in the Spring of 2020. A brand new disease pandemic is spreading rapidly across the entire globe.

What are your priorities?

If it was me, knowing that vaccines are a minimum of several months away, I’d be exploring as many early treatment options as possible in the interim.

I would pay particular attention to existing drugs with known antiviral properties. Existing medications already have full safety profiles so there’s no waiting if I find a treatment that even modestly reduces the risk of dying of this new disease.
