“The work on the drug we are developing is still going on. We are encouraged by the result we are getting. We are getting very positive signs.”

He said “luckily the drug is a safe one.  It is a drug already in use.  We are repurposing it for this particular purpose. So when we finished studying and testing we are doing, I think the drug will come up in line very soon. ”

Iwu also said “if the pandemic escalates, the NAFDAC will know what to do, as they did in the USA to fast track the use of chloroquine.
