WASHINGTON (Diya TV)  — President Trump announced the Food and Drug Administration granted an emergency use authorization for Gilead Sciences’ drug Remdesivir to treat COVID-19. Gilead is donating 1.5 million vials of Remdesivir. In clinical trials led by a team of investigators, including an Indian-American physician, coronavirus patients have shown positive results from taking Remdesivir. Though researchers note it’s not seen as a total solution yet to cure the virus.
