The CEO of Gilead Sciences said that remdesivir, a new drug granted emergency authorization to treat COVID-19, will be sent to the patients most in need early this week. 

“We are now firmly focused on getting this medicine to the most urgent patients around the country here in the United States,” Daniel O’Day said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” 

“We intend to get that to patients in the early part of this next week, beginning to work with the government which will determine which cities are most vulnerable and where the patients are that need this medicine,” he added. US SPREAD GOOD NEWS!
