The US Government’s Opinion Regarding Chloroquine
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 21, 2020
The US Food and Drug Administration(FDA) has not approved the use of chloroquine in treating those who have infected with Coronavirus (Covid-19). FDA is the body of charge of licensing medicines in America. But, Mr.Trump and some researchers have endorsed chloroquine for “compassionate use”. This is where a doctor can give a drug that is yet to be cleared by the government to a patient in a life-threatening condition. We hope for a cure for this fatal disease.
