SEAN HANNITY (HOST): We have major new developments tonight in the fight against the Chinese coronavirus. This is important. Another huge paradigm shift today unfolding before our very eyes tonight. At the direction earlier today of the president, the FDA is now fast-tracking multiple new treatments for COVID-19. This could be the breakthrough we need right now. Take a look.
HANNITY: And tonight, thanks to the elimination of this red tape, a policy called compassionate use, at least two new treatments are now already in use among patients who are seriously ill. I had two calls to my radio show today. They talked about chloroquine.
Now, it's been in the United States and used to treat and prevent malaria since 1945. In fact, already approved by the FDA as an antimalarial medication. According to some doctors, U.K., China, South Korea, elsewhere, study done in consultation with Stanford University School of Medicine, UAB School of Medicine, this drug has been successful in mitigating the symptoms of the coronavirus.
And look at this map, look at this. Places like Africa, where chloroquine has been frequently used to prevent and treat malaria, very few cases of coronavirus. The early data [is] beyond promising. And, of course, correlation does not always equal causation, but the scientists are now looking to connect those dots. We may have had a breakthrough today.
