Japanese anti-flu drug promising for treating COVID-19 patients

The Philippine government is eyeing the use of a Japanese anti-flu drug for treating COVID-19 patients, the Department of Health said on Monday. 

Health Undersecretary Eric Domingo said in an interview that the medication is ‘very promising’ in treating viral diseases as it yields a positive response on patients. 

Meanwhile, the Food and Drug Administration said the drug Avigan is not yet produced commercially. 

Trials using the drug as main ingredient have shown “very good clinical results.”
