Two oral Covid treatments are approved in Australia

-

- Advertisment -

Two pills to help treat Covid infections have been approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration for the first time in Australia.

The oral treatments, Paxlovid and Lagevrio, have been approved for adults who catch the virus and who are at risk of hospitalisation or death.

They are not to be given to be given to patients who require oxygen, the TGA said. 

‘Neither product is intended to be used as a substitute for vaccination against Covid-19,’ the TGA said.

‘Either medicine should be administered as soon as possible after diagnosis of Covid-19 and within 5 days of the start of symptoms.
