Biden Administration Promotes Availability of COVID Antiviral Pill

April 25, 2022

Back in December, we saw the approval of the COVID-19 antiviral treatment Paxlovid. Now, with cases continuing to rise, the White House is now moving to raise awareness of the pill and taking steps to make it easier to access. The pill, Paxlovid, is supposed to be administered within five days of symptoms appearing and has been proven to bring about a 90% reduction in hospitalizations and deaths among patients most likely to get severe disease. The Biden Administration is planning to highlight the relative abundance of the drug next week.
