On Sunday March 29, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to permit the emergency use of hydroxychloroquine sulfate and chloroquine phosphate. The drugs, which have been used to treat Malaria for decades, have been observed to perform positively in COVID-19 patients.

“The EUA requires that fact sheets (which) provide important information about using chloroquine phosphate and hydroxychloroquine sulfate in treating COVID-19 be made available to health care providers and patients, including the known risks and drug interactions.”(a)
