Federal officials wanted to lock down the drug for Americans during the scramble to get the pandemic under control. The number of cases has generally declined across the country after a midsummer Sun Belt spike, though some worry spots remain.

“Federal government oversight of the allocation of Veklury is not required because the drug is no longer a scarce resource — a tribute
