5:14 am
gets in the way of these patients getting the medicine. so we made a decision to donate about 1.5 million vials of remdesivir. >> reporter: before the emergency approval you could only get it through a trial. now doctors can prescribe the drug right now but can only be administered via iv to patients in the hospital. obviously, most patients will need medication at home. so more studies about the delivery mechanism are in the works. pill would be ideal, nazal sprays and self injections, the way you give an insulin shot, all of that being discussed for outpatient use. i'm kate larson, abc 7 news. >> that is encouraging news. president trump is aiming to get a vaccine in the u.s. by the end of the year, calling it operation warp speed, pushing drugmakers and the military into production and ensure its safety and have enough doses for every american. >> i don't know who said it, but whatever the maximum is,

5:17 am
could carry enough virus to make you sick. even if someone sneezed on that pile of fruit. >> you would have to have viable virus on the package, touch that virus right where the virus is and there would have to be enough virus right on that spot that you touch and then you would have to transfer it to your face or mouth. it's not a likely scenario, so the risk is low. >> reporter: that's a relief. however, he says, it can't hurt to wipe down your groceries when you get home. he does it himself. >> my wife is making us wipe any item that comes in from the outside down with these wipes. so i'm right there. >> reporter: pour the contents into your own containers and throw out the package. scrub produce in plenty of cold water. cook foods at least 160 degrees to kill any viruses. although risk appears low, the virus is still a mystery. >> a big well of unknowness about this whole situation.
