May 2, 2020, New Delhi: In a major breakthrough, the US drug regulatory body, #FDA, has given the go-ahead to the antiviral drug called #remdesivir to be immediately used on #Covid19 patients for treatment.

Although not conclusive, doctors in the US say remdesivir helps #coronavirus patients to recover faster than usual.

Remdesivir is manufactured by the pharma giant #GileadSciences.

The drug will be tried out on an emergency basis on both young and adult #Covid patients in the US.

If it continues to show positive results, doctors expect it might hold the key to a much needed breakthrough treatment to the respiratory disease that has killed over 240,000 people worldwide.

Remdesivir as of now is not available in bulk across the world.
