ONE-A-DAY TO FIGHT CORONA?! Researchers say a DAILY PILL to
treat Covid could arrive by late fall
" Scientists are working on creating a short-term regiment of
daily pills, taken orally, that can help fight the virus soon
after diagnosis, PBS NewsHour reports.
" "Oral antivirals have the potential to not only curtail the
duration of one's Covid-19 syndrome, but also have the
potential to limit transmission to people in your household if
you are sick," said Timothy Sheahan, a virologist at the
University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.
" Around three antivirals for Covid are being tested in trials,
with results expected as soon as "late fall or winter," said
Carl Dieffenbach, director of the Division of AIDS at the
National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who is
overseeing the antivirals' development.
