"The state of Michigan has requested hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine distributions from the Strategic National Stockpile for use on certain patients with COVID-19.

The request is based on the Food and Drug Administration's February announcement that the anti-malaria drug was granted emergency use authorization, said Lynn Sutfin, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Health and Human Services. She did not have immediate information on the amount Michigan requested.

The request comes as several hospitals throughout the state are using the drug “off label” to treat COVID-19 patients."
