Gilead Sciences (GILD) losing -0.8 percent on Friday has suffered from a poor perception of its anti-coronavirus drug from the World Health Organization. W.H.O. advises that patients hospitalized for Covid-19 should not be prescribed Remdesivir medication by physicians. “There is currently no evidence that Remdesivir improves survival or the need for ventilation,” according to the W.H.O. Instead, the organization suggests that cheaper and usable steroids (Cortisone) be used to treat serious cases.
