What's A 6,000% Markup Between Friends?

The government-endorsed treatment for CoV is remdesivir, marketed by Gilead.

The sticker price is $520/dose or $3,120 for a short-course treatment and $5,720 for a long-course treatment. What do you get for your three large? A four day shorter recovery time (so says Gilead).

Did I mention remdesivir costs only $9/dose to manufacture?

Can we look forward to some Congressional hearings about price gouging like the ones held for Mylan charging for $600 for Epipens?
