I could be wrong, but it doesn't seem to me like early intervention is not helpful, but more like it's hard to show the statistical significance in a trial where (thankfully) most people get better anyway, even among the relatively elderly, because the numbers on the trial were not massive, so the contrast with the placebo group wasn't either (but it was zero deaths and hopitalisations in the Synarigen group wasn't it, which is better than what vaccines are now achieving, if it were to continue to be the case).
Maybe things will develop in terms of biomarkers that identify those who would most benefit from the treatment too, to the point it could be delivered after positive tests and mild symptoms, or at least before hospital admission if the data 'proves' it is more effective than current hospital treatment. But being used as a go-to therapeutic for new, breathless, hospital admissions is an alternative route I suppose, maybe for a split strategy of at-home and in-hospital Synairgen Covid treatment?
I'd hope your second paragraph (with the question when will lockdowns end) can be answered by your third paragraph (therapeutics that work, hopefully including, or primarily even, Synairgen). I don't like your first paragraph though (and I hope the 12 recommends are not because of it) because I don't like the logic that says the deaths don't matter as long as there is enough capacity in the NHS to cope with admissions (maybe you want to clarify that's not what you mean).
