Yes that is correct. Japan has just approved the Remdesivir as an authorized drug for treatment of COVID-19. The drug is manufactured by Gilead Sciences Inc. Japan reached the decision just 3 days after Gilead filed for fast-track approval for the treatment. Remdesivir will be administered to patients with severe COVID-19 symptoms, he added. With no other approved treatments for COVID-19, interest in the drug is growing around the world. Remdesivir is administered by intravenous infusion and was granted authorisation only last week by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for emergency use for the treatment of the Coronavirus.
