Prayer #230: For Eli Lilly's Newly FDA Approved Coronavirus Treatment
Yesterday, the Food and Drug Administration approved Eli Lilly's antibody treatment drug Bamlanivimab for COVID-19 for emergency use. The drug is given using an IV and has been authorized for treatment of patients 12 years old or more with a high risk of hospitalization from the virus, including those 65 or older with serious health conditions that make them severely susceptible to grave COVID complications. To be effective, the treatment should be given as soon as possible after a positive test for the virus, and within 10 days after symptoms appear. It is approved for those who are at high risk but have not yet developed serious symptoms and complications.
Pray that this COVID-19 treatment would be greatly effective in turning back the virus in its earlier stages. Pray that hospitalizations would be prevented and lives saved.
Ps. 9:10: "And those who know Your name put their trust in You, for You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You."
