Despite of the Philippine Health Department warnings over the anti-viral drug developed by a Filipino doctor claiming that it can cure or protect people against the coronavirus, now the the Fabunan team was overwhelmed to the result of the conference together with the Indonesian Health Ministry.
“Office of the Director of Pharmaceutical Production and Distribution MINISTRY OF HEALTH JAKARTA INDONESIA personal meeting after the zoom conference with different Directors like Director General and Dr. Willie Fabunan Congratulations nasagot mo ng maayos lahat at nakinig silang lahat 2.5 hours video conference ha thanks for the success of this meeting another milestone for Pilipino Scientists,” the Facebook post read.
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a cease-and-desist order against the use of the Fabunan anti-viral injection, amid reports that more people were getting the medication, said Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire.
Ruben Fabunan, a physician now based in the US, developed the anti-viral drug together with three brothers, who are all doctors. They have a family clinic in Zambales, where the injection is available to their patients.
