Newest on a chloroquine drug trial, to start 3/24:
New York State is about to begin testing drugs for treatment of coronavirus, Gov. Cuomo said Sunday.
The feds have given the state 70,000 doses of hydroxychloroquine, 10,000 doses of zithromax and 750,000 doses of chloroquine. Testing will kick off Tuesday, Cuomo said.
“The president is optimistic about these drugs and we are all optimistic that it could work,” the governor said at a press conference. “I’ve spoken with a number of health officials and there is a good basis to believe that they could work.”
