    Can you please clarify the mortality rate of this virus compared to the flu? My naysayer friends keep insisting the mortality is not much worse than the flu and we are over-reacting and ruining lives.

    Was Dexamethasone only effective in the trial with late stage patients, and by intravenous administration? There must be millions of people who were on oral steroids during this pandemic. Can their medical status re COVID-19 be assessed?

    Can we get real stats? If you test 100 people how many are positive for coved ? And of the positive how many will show symptoms and get very sick ? I see many people with masks covering only their mouths. Is that safe to be around ?

    I’m afraid I don’t understand the mechanics of clinical trials. Could you walk us through, for example, how what you’re doing is proceeding? And what the right timeline is to look for some benefit from your efforts?
