The two drugs are anti-inflammatory drugs administered by drip.

Experts in the United Kingdom identified two medicines capable of reducing deaths among the sickest patients from Covid-19 by a quarter.

These are two anti-inflammatory drugs –tocilizumab y sarilumab– administered by drip, saving one life for every 12 people receiving the treatment, say researchers who have carried out a test in the intensive care units of the UK National Health Service (NHS) English).

Experts say the supplies are already available across the UK, so they can be used immediately to save hundreds of lives.

There are more than 30,000 COVID-19 patients in UK hospitals, 39% more than in April.
