After testing positive for coronavirus test, the Oscar-winning actor and director spent a week in the Los Angeles hospital. People were confirmed his recovery by the representatives. “He was treated with the drug remdesivir, while in the hospital, and has tested negative numerous times since then, as well as (testing) positive for the antibodies,” the representative said.
Reports say that Remdesivir, which was recently approved by the US government, is being studied as offering effective treatment for COVID-19. In a recent study of antiviral drugs published in The New England Journal of Medicine, Healthline reported that recovery time for those with COVID-19 was reduced from an average of 15 days to 11 days. The Healthline also said that the treatment was expensive, with drugmaker Gilead Sciences charging $ 3,120 for a standardized medical course for people with private insurance coverage.
The Daily Telegraph, an Australian news agency, first reported that Gibson had been hospitalized for the coronavirus. People said they saw him with his girlfriend Rosalind Rose at a grocery store in Los Angeles just before he was admitted to hospital.
In contrast, when Gibson kept his COVID 19 diagnosis secret, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson opened up about their fight against the coronavirus. On March 11, they announced that they had overcome the COVID 19 epidemic. Hanks shared on Instagram “We felt a bit tired like we had colds, and some body aches,” Hanks wrote. “Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too, To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the coronavirus, and were found to be positive.”
