"Paxlovid" doesn't work


Gateway PunditPfizer announced Friday that a recent trial study revealed its antiviral pill Paxlovid was not effective at preventing Covid-19 infection in adults who had been exposed to the virus through household contact.

Pfizer’s Paxlovid became the first US authorized home COVID-19 treatment. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization for Pfizer’s antiviral pill to treat mild-to-moderate COVID-19 infections in December.

According to the press release, Paxlovid significantly reduced the proportion of people with COVID-19-related hospitalization or death from any cause by 88%.

Biden administration announced this week to double the number of locations that carry Paxlovid. They secured funding to purchase 20 million treatment courses of the antiviral pill, per CNN.

Well, to be fair, it may do something in certain cases. But it doesn't help if someone in your household has COVID. My guess would be viral load.
