That coronavirus, aka, COVID-19, has everyone in pandemic mode, but Dr. Oz appears hopeful that another method of fighting the virus could be one of the cures. Dr. Oz was on Lou Dobbs show talking about the possibility of anti-malaria drugs working in combination with others to beat COVID-19.
It's important to know that these statements are in theory and still being tested, as they have not yet been approved by the FDA.
Live Science posted this about it, saying "But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) swiftly issued a statement to clarify that, no, these drugs are not approved as treatments for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Both drugs are approved to treat malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, but must still be assessed in clinical trials before being declared a safe and effective COVID-19 treatment. Doctors in the U.S. have wide latitude to prescribe drugs "off-label," meaning for conditions beyond their initial FDA approval."
