UNITED STATES.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of the United States has given this Saturday the emergency authorization to Regeneron, the medicine to treat coronavirus popularly known after being used to treat the American president, Donald Trump, when he contracted this disease.

This treatment consists of what is known as a cocktail of antibodies and studies have shown that its early application improves the condition of patients.

The authorization has been issued to treat patients over 12 years old who have the possibility of developing severe symptoms and who are neither hospitalized nor need oxygen, the ‘New York Times’ newspaper has assured.

Another similar drug from the Eli Lilly company was approved earlier this month. Trump promised after leaving the hospital that he would guarantee free access to this drug. The company has received more than 500 million dollars from the US federal government (421.7 million euros approximately) and the first 300,000 doses will be free in the United States, although Americans could pay depending on their insurance to have it applied, as it must be used in a hospital.

According to company calculations, by the end of November they will have enough doses for 80 thousand people and they will be able to treat 200 thousand patients at the beginning of January and 300 thousand at the end of the month, since they have reached an agreement with the Swiss Roche for the production of the medicine.
