  3. UPDATE Oral Agents

    Currently, there are three antivirals that seem “promising” in combating COVID-19 in its early stages, according to Carl Dieffenbach, director of the Division of AIDS at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. The top medication as of right now is molnupiravir from Merck&Co. and Ridgeback Biotherapeutics. Following behind are Pfizer’s antiviral, PF-07321332, and Roche and Atea Pharmaceuticals’ AT-527.

    How do these antiviral medications work, exactly?

    Essentially, they hinder the virus’s ability to replicate in human cells. Currently, only one antiviral drug, known as remdesivir, has been approved to treat COVID-19. However, it’s not an oral drug and it’s also not intended for widespread use. It’s given to patients who’ve been hospitalized from COVID-19.
