Deaths from any cause

Remdesivir probably makes little or no difference to deaths from any cause (4 studies, 7142 people). In 1000 people, 8 fewer die with remdesivir compared to placebo or standard care.

Did patients get better with remdesivir?

·       Remdesivir may have little or no effect on the length of time patients spent on invasive mechanical ventilation (2 studies, 1298 people). 

·       The authors do not know whether remdesivir increases or decreases time on supplemental oxygen (3 studies, 1691 people).
