Return To Sender? Millions Of Hydroxychloroquine Pills Locked In Limbo

President Donald Trump once touted hydroxychloroquine as “game changers” in the fight against the novel coronavirus COVID-19.

Now, millions of doses of the drug are in limbo after the Food and Drug Administration stripped them of their emergency use authorization this week.

The drugs — hydroxychloroquine sulfate and chloroquine phosphate — were deemed too risky and likely ineffective to treat COVID-19.

According to HuffPost, the US federal stockpile has 66 million doses of the drugs, including 3 million tablets of Resochin, donated by Bayer.

But now it’s unclear what will be done with the excess supply.
