The death rate in the country of COVID-19 dropped to 1.6 percent from 5 percent as a result of clinical management and treatment methods. DOH Undersecretary and COVID-19 treatment czar, Dr. Leopoldo Vega, who should not rely on medication or treatment for COVID-19 like other ailments, should precede prevention or avoid getting sick. However, clinical practice and management in the Philippines have greatly improved in the fight against the virus. He said Remdesivir is being given to patients with moderate and severe cases, and that it helps patients in the ICU to recover more easily. Another is the "high-flow oxygen" machine that can produce up to 50-gauge oxygen flow compared to the oxygen tank with only 15-gauge, which is said to be better for intubation in the patient.

COVID-19 swells the airways in the patient's lungs so the blood loses oxygen supply which can help it by releasing strong oxygen. However, Vega stressed that despite the improvement in response to the virus, prevention is still more critical. He said he should not get sick so that the infection does not get worse and does not reach the expensive treatment. Remdesivir is priced at P6,000 - P8,000 per vial where a patient in moderate and severe cases needs 11 vials. Also the large amount that can be spent on high-flow oxygen machine, which if you do not want to spend a lot is to wear a cheap face mask, face shield, disinfectants and practice of other health protocols.
