There are more viable treatments undergoing at the moment that can help in the case of covid 19, the terrible disease triggered by the novel coronavirus.

Pfizer updates the world on covid treatment
It’s been just reported that Pfizer will submit full data on its Covid treatment pill to the Food and Drug Administration in the coming days. This is what CEO Albert Bourla told CNBC on Wednesday.
Bourla said he’s confident the full results from the clinical trials will show that the oral antiviral pill, Paxlovid, reduces hospitalization and death by 89% as interim data showed in November. Paxlovid is taken in combination with a popular HIV drug, ritonavir.
“We will have the full set in a few days,” Bourla told CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”
He continued and said the following:
“And we will submit them. I feel comfortable the data that we will submit will mimic at large what we saw in the first part of the study. When we unblind the data I don’t expect we will have a difference.”
CNBC also said that Pfizer submitted its application to the FDA last month for emergency approval of the treatment.
Bourla told CNBC the FDA has a “very high sense of urgency” and he believes they will make a decision this month.

The same notes continue and say the following:
“Scientists widely agree the coronavirus will keep mutating indefinitely, with new variants emerging periodically for the rest of our lives.”
