FDA Reports Drug Shortages

Confirms other alternatives exist

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced on Friday that the first drug shortage related to the spreading coronavirus had taken effect. The FDA did not disclose the manufacturer or the product but rather stated that the problem was caused by a manufacturing issue due to a lack of ingredients. The administration also made it clear that other drug alternatives are currently available.

In their remarks, the FDA explained that it had reached out to over 180 drug manufacturers about their supply chains to get a better understanding of the disruptions caused by the growing disease. The coronavirus has now spread to over 83,000 individuals and recently caused the first casualties in the United States over the weekend. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For God to give FDA commissioner Dr. Stephen M. Hahn wisdom on how to ensure the necessary treatments are available in the coming days.
  • That drug manufacturers would have the needed materials to produce life-saving medicine. 
  • For President Trump’s Administration to be used by God to bring about an end to the spread of sickness around the world.
