According to the internet encyclopedia, remdesivir, may cause respiratory failure, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remdesivir.  Perhaps this is why Japan only approved it for severe cases?

Hasn't the US already bought the world’s supply?

EU approval means nothing since the US has bought up the supply for months in advance.

That horse has left the barn.

Follow the money...

While HDQ has been bashed and attacked ( because a very old, SAFE , CHEAP, worldwide available drug that actually works)

Other dangerous drugs are pushed aggressively by gain driven interests.

*Hydroxychloroquine:

Quantity 100 -- per unit $0.37 – $0.71

~

Gilead: *Remdesivir will cost $2,340 for 5-day course

hydroxycholoquine has no demonstrated usefulness, at all. It does not matter how cheap it is if using it gives no benefit and can even put the patients in more risk, being old is not an advantage, and it not actually that safe, because it has very well known dangerous side effects.

And your theory that it is attacked just because it is cheap does not hold water either, dexametasone is also dirt cheap but unlike chloroquine it actually demonstrated to be useful in complicated patients, so it has not been "attacked", on the contrary is being recommended as a treatment everywhere in the world.

Maybe if you believe the Fox “News” MSM fake news. There are other studies that prove for a fact it doesn’t work. Your MSM won’t report on those facts though will they, as it goes against your narrative. So the Fox News victims will never admit these facts.
