There is a moment of respite across the globe, as people can now heave a sigh of relief after weeks of fear of uncertainty caused by the spread of the deadly pandemic coronavirus, COVID 19, as the US has approved the anti-malarial drug chloroquine for use as a treatment against the new coronavirus, President Donald Trump said Thursday.
“We’re going to be able to make that drug available almost immediately, and that’s where the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has been so great,” Trump told reporters.
“They’ve gone through the approval process – it’s been approved. They took it down from many, many months to immediate. So we’re going to be able to make that drug available by prescription.”
