Israeli pharma company Teva is donating 6M doses of the malaria drug chloroquine to the United States to treat a Chinese coronavirus outbreak. President Donald Trump has touted the drug as a possible breakthrough in the crisis.
“We are committed to helping to supply as many tablets as possible as demand for this treatment accelerates at no cost,” Teva executive vice president Brendan O’Grady said in a statement, reported Breitbart.
Teva’s donation came hours after President Donald Trump touted the use of chloroquine to treat patients who have been infected with the coronavirus
“We’re going to be able to make that drug available almost immediately,” the president said at a White House press briefing. “The nice part is it’s been around for a long time, so we know that if things don’t go as planned, it’s not going to kill anybody.”
