This is truly wild. Back in March, the CDC’s initial recommendation to medical providers was to specifically NOT prescribe steroids to patients with respiratory symptoms, even asthmatics in a flare, because it was thought to suppress the immune system and make a COVID infection worse. Little did we know… It’s a good thing science can change with new data.

I love that explanation of how the worst part of the Covid infection is how it makes a person’s body start attacking itself due to the immune system over-reacting. So this sort of treatment ought to do a lot of good before we get an effective vaccine.
