Trump Says Eli Lilly Drug to Be Approved And He’s Not Contagious
President Donald Trump said Eli Lilly and Co.’s antibody treatment for coronavirus will be approved by the Food and Drug Administration, and insisted he’s no longer contagious after contracting Covid-19 last week.
“I don’t think I’m contagious at all,” Trump said in an interview Thursday on Fox Business Network.
Trump again credited his recovery to a Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. “antibody cocktail” he was administered and said a similar drug under development by Eli Lilly would be approved by the FDA.
Lilly rose as much as 2.7% before regular trading in New York after Trump’s remarks.
