KONTAN.CO.ID – WASHINGTON. The US Food and Drug Administration on Thursday (10/22/2020) approved Gilead Sciences Inc’s remdesivir as a drug to treat Covid-19 patients who are hospitalized. This makes remdesivir the first and only drug approved for the disease in the United States.
Launch Reutersintravenously, remdesivir, is one of the drugs used to treat US President Donald Trump during his fight with Covid-19.
The FDA’s official approval comes just hours before President Trump’s final debate with rival Joe Biden takes place ahead of the November 3 presidential election.
Remdesivir has been available under the FDA’s (EUA) emergency use permit since May, after research led by the National Institutes of Health showed remdesivir was successful in reducing hospital stay by five days.
However, the World Health Organization (WHO) said last week that a global trial of Covid-19 therapy found that remdesivir had no substantial effect on length of hospital stay or chances of survival. The study has not been reviewed by outside experts.
Gilead questioned the results of the WHO research.
Remdesivir, which will be sold under the brand name Veklury, is priced at US $ 3,120 for the five-day treatment package, or US $ 2,340 for government buyers such as the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Gilead shares shot up 4.3% immediately after trading hours to US $ 63.30.
Reuters reports that remdesivir has become the standard of care for hospitalized patients with severe Covid-19 although it has not been shown to improve survival. The drug has also not been shown to significantly help moderately ill patients, and many physicians remain cautious about using it in patients with less severe disease.
Summarized from the page Healthline, here are 9 proven health benefits of turmeric:
1. Useful as a medicinal ingredient
The first benefit of turmeric is that it can be used as a medicinal ingredient. Turmeric contains curcumin which is the main active ingredient in the plant.
Curcumin has very strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. However, the curcumin content in turmeric is not very high, which is about 3% by weight of turmeric.
Thus, it is very difficult to get the benefits of curcumin if you only use it in cooking spices. If you want to feel the full effect, it is necessary to take supplements that contain large amounts of curcumin.
Unfortunately, curcumin is difficult to absorb into the bloodstream. Curcumin is also fat soluble, so you should drink it with a fatty diet.
Oxidative damage caused by free radicals is believed to be one of the mechanisms behind aging and many diseases.
The curcumin contained in turmeric is a powerful antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals due to its chemical structure. In addition, curcumin increases the activity of antioxidant enzymes in the body.
4. Improve brain function and reduce the risk of brain disease
The benefits of turmeric for the brain are curcumin content which can increase levels of BDNF (Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor) in the brain. BDNF is a protein that plays a role in brain growth.
So that by increasing BDNF levels it is possible to delay age-related decline in brain function. In addition, it can also improve brain memory.
Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the world. Several studies have shown that curcumin can improve endothelial function, which is the lining of blood vessels.
Endothelial dysfunction is a major driver of heart disease and involves the inability of the endothelium to regulate blood pressure, blood clotting, and various other factors.
6. Helps prevent cancer
Cancer is a terrible disease, characterized by uncontrolled cell growth. However, there is evidence that curcumin can prevent cancer, especially cancers of the digestive system such as colorectal cancer.
In a 30-day study in 44 men with lesions or abnormal tissue in the colon that sometimes turned cancerous, 4 grams of curcumin per day reduced the number of lesions by 40%.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease in the world and the leading cause of dementia. Unfortunately, there is no good cure for Alzheimer’s yet.
The main characteristic of Alzheimer’s disease is a build-up of a protein called amyloid plaque. Studies show that curcumin can help clear this plaque.
8. Beneficial for arthritis or joint inflammation
The anti-inflammatory curcumin content in turmeric is useful for the treatment of arthritis or arthritis.
In a study in people with rheumatoid arthritis, curcumin was even more effective than anti-inflammatory drugs. Many other studies have looked at curcumin’s effects on arthritis and noted improvements in various symptoms.
The curcumin content in turmeric has also been shown to treat depression. In one small study it was stated that curcumin was as effective as an antidepressant.
Depression is also associated with decreased levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and shrinkage of the hippocampus, an area of the brain that plays a role in learning and memory. Curcumin increases BDNF levels, which are beneficial in reducing depression.

KONTAN.CO.ID – Singapore. The Singapore government announced plans to start vaccinating its citizens from the Covid-19 pandemic starting in 2021. Even though the plan for the corona vaccination is not yet clear, the Singapore government will first implement the new normal policy.
The Singapore government has determined which groups will get vaccination priority. “Priority for vaccination will be given to residents who are more prone to infection, for example the elderly and medical workers,” said the Ministry of Health (MOH) on Tuesday (20/10/2020).
It is not certain which corona vaccine will be used. There was also no mention of the specific month in which vaccinations would start. However, the corona vaccine is predicted to arrive in Singapore’s hands at the end of this year.
“We’ve put together a panel of doctors and scientists to provide insights and clues to which vaccine Singapore will use.” said Kenneth Mak, Director of Health Services at MOH.
Mak continued that many of the new corona vaccine candidates will complete phase 3 clinical trials by the end of this year so that the vaccination plan makes more sense to be carried out next year.
Health Minister Gan Kim Yong continued Mak’s statement stressing the importance for Singapore to consider a number of décorona vaccine options if one fails. Other factors that will also be considered are how much vaccine is available and the price of the corona vaccine.
So far, according to data from the World Health Organization (WHO), 44 vaccine candidates are currently undergoing clinical trials, including Lunar-CoV-19 which is produced in Singapore.
Although the new corona vaccination will be carried out next year, the Singapore Government will soon leaving phase 2 towards a new life order (new normal) which has been running since 19 June. The stable spread of the Covid-19 virus in the “Lion Country” has prompted the government to announce plans to enter phase 3 or new normal at the end of this year
New normal in Singapore will allow more people to gather, which is as many as 8 people out of a total of 5 people currently.
Mes yes or no? The majority is split, Prime Minister Conte proceeds for stop and go, but the Undersecretary for Health Sandra Zampa has no doubts: “It is an indispensable tool, it is enough to procrastinate. We face the issue in Parliament, calling technicians and experts to hear, and then we decide. This uncertainty hurts the country”.
Why indispensable, Undersecretary? “It allows us to immediately take three times the resources we have used so far to tackle the pandemic: approximately 11 billion, also considering the 4 allocated to the budget. Look, if there is one thing that the emergency of recent months has highlighted , in addition to an extraordinary capacity to react, are the many holes in our social and health network. At last we have the tool and the resources to fill them. If we don’t do it, I believe that in the future someone will ask us for an account “.
But the premier argues that the MES is not a political priority. Agree?
“Of course, the political priority at the moment is to keep the majority united and firm in a phase of enormous difficulty for the country. After that, the first delivery we must make to Italians is to return an enhanced, strengthened and renewed health service which, it is proven, it is the first of the principals to protect the good of the nation. In the race, if economy or health is more important, we discovered at our expense that if a person gets sick in a remote district, within a few months we can paralyze the greatest powers in the world. It happened to the European continent, to the United States … no one was spared “.
However, the two things are not together: the M5S does not want to know about activating the Mes. Doesn’t insisting risk throwing the government upside down? “I heard with my own ears the former Minister of Health Giulia Grillo say a Radical Radio that the Mes must be taken. We are talking about a topic that should be addressed in a secular way. Without preconceptions or ideological prejudices. With a serious and in-depth discussion in Parliament, already too long postponed “.
The treasury minister also looks cool. He explained that this is not about additional resources, but a loan, the only advantage of which would be to save on interest. “It seems to me a somewhat reductive reading. In the meantime, this money would arrive immediately. And then it would be entirely destined for Healthcare, while as far as I know the share of the Recovery dedicated to it would be between 9 and 10 billion. Let’s say Italy wants to take only half of the Mes: 18 billion instead of 36. It would still be double the amount of Recovery available “.
So is the Mes needed? “It is needed, it must be taken and it must be spent well. There are many things to do. The RSA must all be rethought in a country that is becoming tragically old. Hospitals must be modernized and equipped. Rebuilding territorial medicine. Breaking down inequalities in personal care. : in the South they don’t even know what a Casa della Salute is “.
But, like Conte, aren’t you afraid of the risk of stigma? Italy would be the only one to ask in Europe: wouldn’t the image of a country be restored to the gas barrel? “Actually I have also heard a lot of economists say the opposite. That is, that the ability to use an instrument that can act as a multiplier would be positively judged. If you set in motion a serious investment mechanism, the economy would also benefit: if you renovate hospitals, buy biomedical devices, finance start-ups in the sector, a virtuous spiral can be triggered “.
Does Minister Speranza also think like you? “For reasons of political equilibrium the minister does not insist. We dream of a local medicine worthy of the name: nurses in doctors’ offices, with the appropriate equipment; more doctors in hospitals, to be trained also through scholarships for those who can’t . We need to strongly renew all the care facilities. Strengthen adolescent medicine. Encourage scientific and pharmacological research, which despite the cuts has several centers of excellence in Italy. And then there is the gigantic hole in performance: starting with the very long waiting lists that must be cut down “.
Can’t all this be done without Mes? “It would certainly be more complicated. Thanks also to a Europe that has found itself strong and in solidarity, the pandemic has offered us – in its drama – an extraordinary opportunity. Our task now is not to waste it. Building for Italy a shield capable of defending it much more than it has been until now “.
Summarized from the page Healthline, Moringa leaves are an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. One cup of chopped fresh leaves weighing 21 grams contains a number of substances that are beneficial to the body, including:
Protein: 2 gram
Vitamin B6: 19% of the RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) or the recommended adequacy rate recommended.
Vitamin C: 12% of the RDA
Iron: 11% of the RDA
Riboflavin (B2): 11% of the RDA
Vitamin A (from beta-carotene): 9% of the RDA
Magnesium: 8% of the RDA
However, on one side, Moringa leaves also contain high antinutrients and can reduce the absorption of minerals and protein.
Moringa plant is rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are compounds that work against free radicals in the body.
High levels of free radicals can cause oxidative stress, which is linked to chronic diseases such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Apart from that, powerful antioxidants can also help lower blood pressure. Moringa leaf extract can also be used as a food preservative, thereby increasing the shelf life of meat by reducing oxidation.
High blood sugar can be a serious health problem such as diabetes. Over time, high blood sugar levels increase the risk of many serious health problems, including heart disease.
For that, it is important to keep your blood sugar within healthy limits. Several studies have shown that Moringa leaves can help lower blood sugar levels associated with the isothiocyanate compounds in these plants.
However, most of the evidence is based on animal studies. There is very little human-based research.

South Korean Prime Minister Jong Se Kyung named three key strategies to combat the virus and economic recovery that are being implemented in his country. The Prime Minister said this during his speech at the Open Innovations Forum, broadcast runs the RBK channel.
The first strategy is the successful implementation of sanitary and epidemiological measures. According to Jung Se Kyun, it is a direct path to economic recovery. “Both the fight against coronavirus and the economy are two imperative goals, and a wise approach is needed in order to maintain a balance between them,” the Prime Minister said.
“The so-called three-T strategy has shown its effectiveness, which includes: mass testing (test), tracing of contacts of infected (trace) and treatment of cases at an early stage (treatment),” added the Prime Minister. He noted that the Koreans actively participated in all anti-epidemic measures, which made it possible to prevent the further spread of the infection without introducing large-scale restrictions in society.
The second strategy is to prepare for large-scale changes in the structure of the economy and society, according to Jung Se Kyun. “Due to the global pandemic, we are entering an era of new normalcy, when global production chains are being rebuilt and a new world order is required. Our government has announced a new national development strategy, the so-called Korean New Deal. The essence of the strategy is digitalization in all areas based on a reliable employment protection system, ”the Prime Minister explained. When implementing the new course, the authorities intend to create 900 thousand jobs, and the volume of investments will amount to 58 trillion Korean won (3.96 trillion rubles) by 2025.
