Doesn't apply in the US. Yes that's right, they licensed it royalty-free in mostly lower-income countries so they could charge people in the US up the ass for the same treatment.

Face it, this country sucks.

A company based in the US is making the drug free for pretty much everywhere but the US. I am guessing it has something to do with the amount of profit they can make on US citizens.

Too bad it doesn't work and farks up your renal system in the process.

Gilead Sciences has struck a licensing agreement with five generic drugmakers to make antiviral drug remdesivir for 127 countries, not including the United States.

BOHICA, motherfarkers!

Not just the US. Doesn't apply in Canada, UK, France, Germany, Sweden, Norway, South Korea, Japan, China, Russia, Finland, and basically any other country that can afford to actually pay for it.

Except in the UK the government will make a take it or no sales offer for it.

More PR games from them. They gave the first batches straight to the government in order to avoid any issues with having to select which people get it first. In this case, the government will be obligated to pay them pull value in the US while at the same time they pass on the hassles of international licensing which might make them look bad.
