In the same way it would also be "easy to eradicate" other infectious diseases in theory.
Like isolating HIV positives away from society, and only allowing congress within that group.

The US has bought the entire supply of Remdesivir - a drug that does not change mortality, but may shorten the disease by a day, or so. This cost billions. I'm sorry, but I must LOL. They can park it next to the Hydroxychloroquine stockpile. Boy did Gilead squeak by not having that useless pile of crap expire.
( Oh, The hilariousness of trying to grab everything for yourself only to discover that you have ALL the glass beads, glitter and feathers! And now, you are broke.)
We can get better results from the non-prescription drugstore:
Singapore COVID-19 study: Vitamin B12, D and magnesium supplementation reduces severity in older patientsA cohort study in Singapore has found that the combination of vitamin D, magnesium and vitamin B12 (DMB) could reduce the rate of progression in older patients with Covid-19.www.nutraingredients-asia.com
And it won't cost 3000$ per 5 day course.
The US buying the entire supply of Remdesivir whist utterly pointless is an extremely selfish thing to do. Apart from dying inexplicably well from this virus, the UK has excelled by identifying for the world two treatments that actually work.
The UK has banned exports of the drugs we have identified but told everyone about them. I sort of hope if a UK vaccine is the first to work the US is last to get it after that 'Remdesivir' move. I don't want anyone to suffer though. Such a move....
