United States President, Donald Trump says the country has approved the use of Chloroquine for the treatment of the deadly Coronavirus pandemic.
AFP quoted Trump as saying that the US had approved its use on Thursday.
“We’re going to be able to make that drug available almost immediately, and that’s where the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) has been so great,” Trump told reporters.
“They’ve gone through the approval process — it’s been approved. They took it down from many, many months to immediate. So we’re going to be able to make that drug available by prescription,” he said.
