By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)– The Food and Drug Administration’s Chief Scientist has authorized emergency use of hydroxychloroquine in the treatment of coronavirus.

In a letter to the Department of Health and Human Services, FDA Chief Scientist Rear Admiral Denise Hinton wrote, “Based on the totality of scientific evidence available to FDA, it is reasonable to believe that chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate may be effective in treating COVID-19, and that, when used under the conditions described in this authorization, the known and potential benefits of chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate when used to treat COVID-19 outweigh the known and potential risks of such products.”
