Merck Asks FDA to Authorize Anti-Covid Pill


What Happened:

  • On Monday, pharmaceutical giant Merck asked the US Food and Drug Administration to authorize its Covid-19 treatment pill.

  • If authorized, it would become the first pill to be used to treat Covid-19 and could be self-administered by patients at their homes.

  • The drug, molnupiravir, is said to help reduce Covid-19 symptoms and speed recovery from the illness. The FDA will review data to determine the safety and effectiveness of the pill.

  • Merck says the pill will reduce hospitalizations and deaths by half if administered to patients with early symptoms of Covid-19.
