Pfizer’s Covid Tablet Will get Permission in US: Who Can Consume?


8 Dec, Kathmandu.
In the United States, Pfizer’s Covid Pill has been approved for use.

The US health regulator on Wednesday approved Pfizer’s covid pill, according to international media reports. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved the use of Pfizer pills in adults and children over the age of 12 infected with covid.

Similarly, people with covid infections who initially need to go to the hospital may be able to use the pill at home. Adults with obesity and heart problems will also be able to use Pfizer’s covid pill. However, people with severe kidney or liver problems will not be able to use the pill.

In addition, children over 12 years of age must weigh at least 40 kg to use the pill. Pfizer’s Covid pill is allowed to be used at home to prevent the worst effects of the corona virus, according to the report.

Pfizer’s pill called ‘Paxlovid’ is a drug that cures early infections of Covid-19. But initially only a limited amount will be distributed.

The antiviral covid pill, manufactured by pharmaceutical company Merck, is also expected to be approved for use soon. But because of the general side effects and high efficacy of Pfizer’s pill is almost certain to be the man’s choice.

Tests have shown that covid infections that can lead to serious conditions reduce the risk of hospitalization and death by 90 percent after taking Paxlovid pill.
