COVID-19: Updates

At the start of 2020, COVID-19 upended our lives. Early on, doctors tried all kinds of therapies from steroids to antivirals, to blood thinners to try and find drugs that could treat the disease. Then, the world shifted to vaccine development. Even if the immediate danger subsides, healthcare providers will be working to find the best treatments for chronic symptoms brought on by the infection, deemed “Long COVID.” Every step of the way, MedShadow’s coverage focuses on the benefits and side effects of treatments in development.
