  • Study: Hospitalization risk after Paxlovid treatment

    Research published on the medRxiv preprint server ahead of peer review indicates that the antiviral drug Paxlovid may reduce risk of COVID-19 hospitalization by 45% when given to individuals who have been infected with the coronavirus. Researchers said that while this protection level was lower than the 90% reduction in hospitalization seen in Paxlovid's clinical trials during the Delta wave of infection, the drug's effects against the Omicron variant are still comparable to the effectiveness of Tamiflu to avert hospitalization in flu patients.
