That money would be better spent on cheap and effective repurposed drugs.

That have been demonstrated above any rational doubt to be worthless against covid? that means money used on them would be completely wasted, or worse, it would make the patients be at a higher risks because of the well known toxicity they have.

Waste of money. I'd be most re concerned about the side effects from the drug than the virus!
