Japan has authorised the use of anti-viral drug Remdesivir to treat coronavirus patients.

The government said it was also considering approving another medication Avigan this month.

Japan is the second country to approve Remdesivir for treating coronavirus patients. The medicine received authorisation in the US for emergency use last week.

A trial showed the drug, used to treat Ebola, shortened the recovery time for patients with Covid-19.
