Sanofi discusses chloroquine as a medicine to treat Covid-19, can it in any case reduce the duration of the disease? “We currently do not have drugs directed against the virus.

They are extremely preliminary and do not meet the standard criteria for evaluating a drug“, answers professor Jean-François Delfraissy.
“We must continue the questioning around this drug, and besides, there will be in the French and European test which starts Friday March 20 with the other molecules under the aegis of the WHO [World Health Organization] a test with chloroquine“, adds the professor Delfraissy, President of the Scientific Council.
