Pfizer and Merck are both touting their antiviral drugs still waiting for FDA approval as game-changers for saving lives affected by COVID-19.

Happy to have Dr. Joe Bertino back, a clinical pharmacologist, he's the editor of the Journal of Clinical Pharmacology and has more than 30 years of experience in the area of drug development and clinical pharmacology.
