Breaking News – FDA Just approved  chloroquine, a cheap, decades-old treatment for mosquito-borne disease, is effective for treating covid-19

The commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration said Thursday that the agency is has approved “compassionate use” of old anti-malarial pill called Chloroquine or Hydroxychloroquine (prices on eDrugSearch.com start at $0.32) and pursuit of other anti-viral therapies to fight COVID-19.

President Donald Trump previously held a teleconference with state governors on Thursday at FEMA headquarters and discussed possible treatments for coronavirus. Trump commended the partnership between the FDA and private sector to develop vaccines and therapies to combat the novel coronavirus.

Trump sang the praises of chloroquine, calling it a potential a “game-changer,” while seeming to stumble over the regulatory path required to give it to a broader pool of patients.

“It has shown very, very encouraging early results, and we’re going to be able to make that drug available almost immediately,” Trump said, “and that is where the FDA has been so great. It’s gone through the approval process. It’s been approved. They took it down from many months to immediate.”
