COVID-19 has spread across the globe and, in an effort to quell the pandemic, the FDA responded with guidelines to expedite effective treatments and devices. They’ve set new regulations meant to hasten the development and approval of products that could prevent, diagnose or treat the virus.
These guidelines, along with the Coronavirus Treatment Acceleration Program, Operation Warp Speed and growing public pressure, have rapidly pushed forward the process of finding solutions to this massive health crisis.
