Three Yale Medical School alumni, Drs. James K. Gude, John Barchilon and David S. Fedson, will be presenting research that shows how commonly prescribed, low cost medications for high blood pressure and high cholesterol — known as ARBs, statins and ACE inhibitors –reduce the severity of Covid-19 infection and make it so much milder that in one study of hospitalized patients death rates dropped from 9.8% to 3.7%.  

Other studies closely support those findings.  Their research and reports are taken from 6 Belgian, 2 UK hospitals, Yale’s Center for Outcomes Research and Evalua-tion and the New York Hospital-Cornell/Columbia Presbyterian hospitals as well as multiple other institutions.  And while vaccines and antivirals are the «perfect cure,» they take a long time for broad distribution.  The physicians present a very good treatment we should be using now until vaccines and antivirals become widely available.  They will discuss how we got there, why so little attention has been paid to such encouraging results, and specifically how to treat high risk Covid-19 patients.
