Forty-four percent (44%) of people would try the malaria drug hydroxycholoroquine for coronavirus, if their doctor recommended it. Hydroxycholorquine is a pill.
That's according to the latest unscientific poll at SharylAttkisson.com.
Two percent (2%) said they would try remdesivir, an I.V. drug administered as fluid into the veins in a hospital setting.
Neither drug is FDA approved for treating coronavirus, but both are available on a limited basis with restrictions. Hydroxycholoroquine has been on the market for decades to treat and prevent malaria. Remdesivir has never been FDA approved for any use. It was developed to fight Ebola but was not approved for that use, partly because other medicines were deemed to be more effective.
Six percent (6%) said they would try Vitamin D and 39% said they would try anything their doctor recommended.
