BOSTON (CBS) – Two Massachusetts hospitals, Massachusetts General Hospital and UMass Memorial, helped put the experimental drug Remdesivir to the test against COVID-19. “It has proven that a drug can block this virus,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases as he announced promising news in the fight against COVID-19. The news comes from a federal study, one that UMass Memorial participated in as one of 47 hospitals in the U.S. and 21 sites around the world. “It’s a hopeful sign. It means that we are on the right track,” said Dr. Robert Finberg, chair of Medicine at UMass Medical School and UMass Memorial Medical Center.
WORCESTER, Mass. — UMass Memorial Hospital is at what they call the highwater mark. Dr. Eric Dickson is the CEO of the hospital and he took Boston 25 News reporter Malini Basu inside on a virtual tour. “This area is typically for patients with trauma and cerebral vascular disease [and] stroke. Down this entire hall, we have nothing but COVID patients” said Dr. Dickson. As he walked through the halls of the hospital, nearly all of the 214 beds were taken up. “This is completely converted into a COVID-19 unit. Every single one of these beds are being used for COVID patients” Dr. Dickson said.
