According to Breitbart, an Israeli leading pharmaceutical company named Teva Pharmaceutical Industries announced that it is donating six million doses of its malaria tablet to the United States.

This shipment of hydroxychloroquine tablets to hospitals will occur on March 31st, Teva added.

Teva expects to provide over ten million within a month.

Teva executive vice president Brendan O’Grady said, “We are committed to helping to supply as many tablets as possible as demand for this treatment accelerates at no cost.”

President Donald Trump has argued the use of chloroquine may be effective in treating patients who have been infected with the coronavirus.

President Trump said, “We’re going to be able to make that drug available almost immediately.”

“The nice part is it’s been around for a long time, so we know that if things don’t go as planned, it’s not going to kill anybody,” Trump added.

“I think it’s going to be very promising. It could be a game-changer. And maybe not. Based on what I see, it could be a game-changer. They’re very powerful.”
