CORONAVIRUS/FDA: [Reporter: “Oleandrin — have you heard of that as a possible therapy for coronavirus?”]
“I’ve heard of it, yes.”
[Reporter: “Have you pressed the FDA to approve it?”]
“No, I haven’t. I haven’t… Is it something that people are talking about very strongly? We’ll look at it. We’ll look it. We’re looking at a lot of different things.
I will say, the FDA has been great. They are very close — we’re very close to a vaccine, very close to a therapeutic. I’ve heard that name mentioned.”
