EDDYVILLE — Some of the smallest towns of rural Iowa are playing key roles in the fight of the global pandemic caused by the new coronavirus.
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds visited a chemical company and a wheelchair maker in rural Iowa.
At Wacker Chemical in Eddyville, Reynolds held a bottle of cyclodextrin which had been manufactured by the plant. The substance is notable because it combines with remdesivir to make it soluble and more effective.
