As the coronavirus continues to spread across the world and claim more lives, scientists and doctors have been testing drugs as treatment options. With no vaccine and cure, certain medications are being prescribed on a compassionate-use basis and are in clinical trials. While a vaccine is still over a year away, four drugs have been approved by the World Health Organization to participate in an international study, including chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine. These are the two drugs normally used to treat malaria that President Trump has made numerous statements about. However, there is now a shortage of these in the U.S. as people scrambled to obtain prescriptions.
