Ruffy Biazon hunts for US drug used to treat COVID-19


He’s asking for a friend.

Muntinlupa Rep. Ruffy Biazon turned to Twitter in search for leads on supply of Remdesivir, a US-made drug which is said to be an effective cure for COVID-19 patients. Don’t start worrying just yet, as Biazon said he wasn’t the one needing it.

“Crowdsourcing: Does anyone have contacts who have supply of Remdesivir? For the father of one of our city officials..please send me a DM,” the politiko said, desperate to help out.

It’s a pretty expensive cure, as a five-day treatment will set you back $2,340 or roughly P115,000 per patient on top of medical and confinement fees. Good luck!
