FDA authorizes emergency use of remdesivir drug to treat coronavirus

The Food and Drug Administration has given emergency use authorization to the antiviral drug remdesivir to treat hospitalized patients with the coronavirus, President Trump on Friday told reporters at the White House.

Gilead CEO Daniel O'Day said remdesivir maker Gilead Sciences is donating 1.5 million vials of the drug and will work with the federal government to distribute it to patients in need.

The news comes days after fundamental outcomes from an investigation of the medication indicated it can assist patients with recuperating quicker. Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, hailed the discoveries not long ago as "very uplifting news."


The approval implies remdesivir can be disseminated in the U.S. what's more, offered intravenously to treat COVID-19 patients – the two grown-ups and youngsters – who are hospitalized with serious ailment, the FDA says. The office characterizes that class as "patients with low blood oxygen levels or requiring oxygen treatment or progressively escalated breathing help, for example, a mechanical ventilator."

Examining the discoveries about the medication's capacity to help COVID-19 patients, O'Day forewarned prior Friday that remdesivir is utilized to treat propelled cases, in which individuals are as of now hospitalized. The ongoing positive discoveries, he stated, are a beginning stage in the battle against the respiratory sickness.

This is just a step in the right direction. It's not the final destination, more drugs/vaccines will still be tried and a better one will replace/upgrade these present once.
The research will never stop just as it is with HIV.
Kudos to them.
