On Friday afternoon, it became clear that the malaria medicines hydroxychloroquine and Remdesivir will be tested at Norwegian hospitals on Norwegian Covid-19 patients.
Among the hospitals that will start the testing are Oslo University Hospital, reports TV 2. Haukeland University Hospital has previously confirmed that they are undergoing testing of Remdesivir.
“Remdesivir is the drug that seems the most promising against the coronavirus so far,” says medical director Steinar Madsen at the Norwegian Medicines Agency to the channel.
The testing of malaria drugs with Covid-19 is done in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO).
