While chloroquine, a drug used to treat malaria, is being tested for coronavirus patients, methods such as blood plasma are also being tested for the disease.

Dr. Kevin Tracy, president of the research center, said that if the test of the drug gives good results, it will be the best, cheapest and quickest treatment for corona so far.

According to Dr. Kevin Tracy, there are many examples in the history of medicine that medicines made for other diseases have a good effect on another disease and they solve the problem.

Giving his personal opinion, he said that he thinks that the medicine for heart, chest and stomach irritation will not work on the patients of Corona, however, anything can happen in science.

The president of the Medical Research Center said that he and his team did not know what the results of the drug test would be, but they need to know the problem by testing the drug.
