Two new studies each suggest that dozens of drugs already approved for use in the United States may prove effective against the new coronavirus, according to U.S. News & World Report.

Computer modeling studies showed the most promising drugs included several antiviral drugs—including Darunavir, Nelfinavir, and Saquinavir—and several other types of drugs, including: the ACE inhibitor Moexipril; the chemotherapy drugs Daunorubicin and Mitoxantrone; the painkiller Metamizole; the antihistamine Bepotastine; and the antimalarial drug Atovaquone.
