Israel Approves Remdesivir for the Treatment of Coronavirus

Israel just approved the use of Gilead Sciences Inc’s antiviral drug remdesivir for the treatment of patients with COVID-19 infection.  Remdesivir is the first drug shown to be effective against the novel coronavirus in human trials, with South Korea, Japan, India, the United States and Singapore having already approved it for emergency use.  To date, studies involving remdesivir are being closely watched as the world looks for treatments to battle a virus that has now infected eight million people.
