Japan plans to ship the anti-flu drug Avigan to 43 countries after its holiday period ends this Wednesday. The drug is seen as a potential treatment for people infected with the coronavirus.

Foreign Minister Motegi Toshimitsu said on Friday that nearly 80 countries have requested free supplies of Avigan, which was developed by a Japanese company.

He said the first batches will be delivered to the 43 countries through a UN organization. Recipient countries will then send clinical trial data to Japan.

Motegi said taming the pandemic will require the development of effective remedies in the short term. He said there are hopes that Avigan will serve as an early-stage treatment for the coronavirus.

Motegi added that Japan will press ahead with public-private partnerships and international cooperation in the search for curative drugs.

Seems everyone is now developing a drug
The main question is; how effective are these drugs in the management of covid-19?
Because Covid-19 is still killing people in large numbers

I disagree, Drugs will make the world go back to normal provided it can cure the virus

People are living with other deadly viruses like HIV, Hepatitis.... And the world was normal

There is no vaccine for malaria and co

If there is a drug that can cure this virus, it's a welcome development, death rate will reduce, no more lockdown, free movement, people going to work places, sports is back....

Then whenever or if ever the vaccine is produced, the world still goes on.
For now almost everyone globally is on hold.

Without the vaccine they will always be cases , this virus is not malaria or hiv . U can’t contact this 2 virus by touching or having close contact but u can contact this virus by breathing a droplet of an infected person when they sneeze or cough and it’s contagious it can stay in the air or iron for many minutes so drug is temporary.

Without the vaccine there will be cases, that's correct
But there will also be a treatment available
It will be wrong to say without the vaccine, things won't return to normal
For now all we need is a treatment modality,
Do you know the minimum time to produce a vaccine takes 18months?

There are diseases that have a higher mortality rate than covid-19 and the world goes on
Malaria kills hundreds of thousands in Nigeria alone per year

There are also so many contagious diseases we live with because there is a cure.... Common cold, TB, influenza

We can get vaccine like that, vaccine takes several months to be produced. Hence, we need a curative drug first to treat those infected now while research continues for the vaccine.

I don't even think they can produce a vaccine this year 2020 sef. So are you saying we should be lockdown until then? Of course not!

If it was that communist wicked dwarfs called Chinkos they will never develop anything thing that is non existent, it is counterfeit they are good at. If they catch this drugs now watch how they will mass produce it and start selling, later they will claim to be technologically ADVANCED, advanced my foot.

China produced this virus to sell ventilators and PPE, just as the West instigate violence just to sell their guns. Japan and Taiwan are donating while China thinks it is time for business. They are also buying oil and grains after crashing the price with their virus
