"Health Canada has actually reviewed all this information and determined that the benefits outweigh the risk of the side effects. But again this is not a drug that you use as an outpatient. You have to be in a hospital setting where someone can monitor all that." Until now, a small number of patients have been treated with remdesivir in Canada under a special access program.
