We could be close to a breakthrough in the search for a cure for the coronavirus. The most likely candidate: Gilead’s drug Remdesivir.
But Gilead wants to keep exclusive control over the drug’s patent.
And that’s bad news because Gilead is notorious for price gouging. It charges $1000 for a single pill of its hepatitis C drug!
But here’s the good news: right now all eyes are on Gilead -- the company is extremely sensitive to public pressure.
With your help, we’ll charter a plane to fly over Gilead’s headquarters and the whole of San Francisco to send a strong message to Gilead’s bosses: “Stop trying to make a profit from the coronavirus!”
And this won’t just get the attention of Gilead: it will be splashed all over the news, including all the big financial newspapers -- and Gilead’s bosses and shareholders will be freaked out by this negative publicity.
Can you chip in to make sure coronavirus drugs will be available to all?
