The Food and Drug Administration on Thursday approved Gilead Sciences antiviral drug remdesivir as a treatment for the coronavirus.
In May, the FDA granted the drug an emergency use authorization, allowing hospitals and doctors to use the drug on patients hospitalized with the disease even though the drug has not been formally approved by the agency. The intravenous drug has helped shorten the recovery time of some hospitalized Covid-19 patients. It was one of the drugs used to treat President Donald Trump, who tested positive for the virus earlier this month.

Yeah, except it doesn’t work worth a crap.
I thought this stuff is weak, at best.
Fauxcy likes it...
Geez Louise. I bought this stuff awhile back at $84 a share when I heard great things. I finally sold it Monday at $60 a share. What the heck.
How much does fouchi make?
When will FDA approve HCQ and Ivermectin for COVID?
Why are you shocked?
There’s a ton of graft money in it for everybody.
Everyone will get rich, doctors will take 15,000 dollar vacations.
Kickbacks will be tremendous.
The results of this medication are FAR from conclusive.
But hey, suckers will be thrilled and graft will abound.
Yeah...it has a 50/50 success rate....woooot!
Wait....who gets paid off, with this approval?
The graft will be tremendous!! :)
This is GREAT news.
But it is great news for all the wrong people.
If I didn’t know better, I’d say a lot of Freepers seem disappointed in the news of us making progress against COVID? Strange.
It doesnt work well. they are putting lipstick on a pig.
Ya I get real rich off remdesivir. In fact so rich that I get paid the same per shift whether I have 10 patients on it or no patients on it. But by all means keep spreading slander against the people actually at bedside treating this if it makes you feel better
Some of us saw the recent study which concluded it did no good at all. Plus Fauci is making a killing on it.
Honest question, is this the 1k per dose med?
It was just approved.
You made yourself look very silly.
And you are blind to reality.
That’s a shame
If you don’t like what your profession pays, get a different one.
Isn’t this the extremely pricier version of Tamiflu?
