As the race for developing a vaccine may still take a year, we look at possible treatments to battle this virus.
Every country is doing everything they can to have access to various antiviral drugs or possible treatments. And there sure is a lot of them but we also have to consider the public health and make sure that these antiviral drugs will not cause more harm. One of these is the Fabunan anti-viral injection.
The Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque have urged the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to study if the Fabunan antiviral injection is safe and effective for use in the treatment of the novel corona virus (COVID-19).
“Sabi ko pag-aralan na nga kung ano iyan at magkaroon na ng pronouncement ang FDA dahil sa panahon na ito, maraming nais maniwala bagama’t kinakailangan ay siyensiya pa rin ang umiral nang malaman natin kung iyan ba ay banta o mabuti sa kalusugan ng ating mga kababayan”– Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque
FDA has already warned the public against using drugs and vaccines with unproven claims for treatment of COVID-19.
“No applications for product registration have been filed to date. Until such products are proven safe and effective for use in the treatment of COVID-19 they cannot be dispensed to the public nor can therapeutic claims be made,”– Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
PRODEX B and the Fabunan antiviral Injections remain unregistered and cannot be sold to the public.
