The drug known as coronavirus is already known in the US. It is the remdesivir drug used by Gilead Sciences (GILD) to treat Ebola. The drug has undergone clinical trials on animals and has proven efficacious against SARS and MERS coronaviruses.

The drug has also proven to be effective in China when hundreds of critically ill patients have been treated since early February.

The drug has also been used successfully to treat serious patients on board the Diamond Princess.
Currently, the drug is only allowed in the United States for extremely severe cases, as it is currently undergoing clinical trials on humans.

Side effects of the drug include short-term hepatic inflammation, for which the drug is contraindicated in patients with liver problems. This is why it is used to treat extreme cases.

However, yesterday US physician Matt McCarthy noted in his Twitter microblog that there is already sufficient data to allow us to conclude that the drug can be used on a wider range of people, even if they have liver problems.

Earlier, republica.am reported that Assistant Director-General of the World Health Organization, Bruce Eilvard, told CNN that remdesivir, a drug used by Gilead Sciences (GILD), was discovered by the American pharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences (GILD). The drug is most effective in the treatment of a new type of coronavirus - COVID-19.

Earlier in January, the drug was tested on mice and monkeys for treatment of other coronavirus types, Middle Eastern respiratory disorder and Extremely Acute Respiratory Disorder, and has proven its effectiveness.

The drug is currently under active testing and the results will be announced in April.

One Chinese pharmaceutical company has already applied to Gilead Sciences (GILD) for a license to produce a copy of the drug.
