Widely-used and cheap steroid hydrocortisone can cut coronavirus deaths by a THIRD

The cheap steroid hydrocortisone can cut Covid-19 deaths by almost a third in the sickest patients, research has found. 

An analysis co-ordinated by the World Health Organisation (WHO) of seven different studies found three steroids – hydrocortisone, methylprednisolone and dexamethasone – reduce the risk of death in critically ill coronavirus patients by 20 per cent.

It bumped up to 31 per cent for hydrocortisone, a drug widely used to treat allergic disorders, skin conditions, ulcerative colitis, arthritis, lupus, multiple sclerosis, or lung problems.
