It is approved for treating malaria, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, but Food and Drug Administration has not approved it to treat the coronavirus.

During an interview, Dr. Anthony Fauci revealed that there is no any drug for fighting coronavirus.
Anthony Fauci added, “The drugs may be effective against the novel coronavirus, but more data is needed to show it is effective under the conditions of Covid-19.” That is the main reason, the United states Food and Drug Administration has not approved the drugs for coronavirus treatment.
The expert says when COVID-19 treatments do arrive, they will likely fall into two categories. The first will help slowing down replication of Coronavirus in patients at the early stage. The second will help to stop the auto inflammatory response in lungs in its critical stage.
