Doctor’s will soon have a new weapon in the fight against COVID-19
COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy continues to be fueled by misinformation from sources such as Fox News, Facebook, and Twitter. Social media continues to be the megaphone of choice for anti-vaxxers, right-wing Trump sycophants, and QAnon conspirators.
For centuries vaccines have been at the forefront of civilization and are what have kept modern society healthy. The notion vaccines are dangerous is as lunacy as believing Trump is president and JFK is still alive.
Sadly, tens of millions of Americans believe both. While back here on planet earth, the sane are doing everything to promote vaccinations to reach herd immunity.
The recent announcement of Pfizer’s COVID-19 pill adds another weapon to fight the deadly virus. The capsule is for people that have already contracted COVID-19 and will be used to treat them.
“Today’s news is a real game-changer in the global efforts to halt the devastation of this pandemic. These data suggest that our oral antiviral candidate if approved or authorized by regulatory authorities has the potential to save patients’ lives, reduce the severity of COVID-19 infections, and eliminate up to nine out of ten hospitalizations.
If approved or authorized, PAXLOVID™, which originated in Pfizer’s laboratories, would be the first oral antiviral of its kind, a specifically designed SARS-CoV-2-3CL protease inhibitor.” said Albert Bourla, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Pfizer.
The Drugmaker is just one of several companies racing to have their oral COVID-19 capsulate approved by the US FDA and other health regulatory organizations globally.
