Covid19 Updates From the SSTC Nurse’s Desk SSTC (Ep 3)


In the public domain and among the medical experts, several preventative methods regarding Covid-19 have been touted. These include social distancing, wearing face covering, hand washing and other hygienic measures. But the question is, what if one contracts the dreaded disease Covid-19? Is this a death sentence?

The sad truth is, there is NO vaccine, cure or standardized treatment. Experts believe that the production of a drug/vaccine with efficacy is 18 to 24 months away, under the best conditions. History has shown that the development of drugs normally takes a much longer period than the proposed time frame mentioned.
