As the coronavirus and COVID19 pandemic continues, researchers are investigating some older drugs that may be viable treatments for the disease. One drug of interest is remdesivir, a decade old drug intended to treat hepatitis. It was never a great success for that, but it may be helpful in treating coronaviruses. One thing that is established is that it is safe for use in humans, which is a HUGE regulatory hurdle. If it turns out to be effective, we already know it is safe.
