FDA to authorize COVID-19 pills this week: Bloomberg

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expected to authorize two COVID-19 treatment pills, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg.

The treatments would include Pfizer’s pill, Paxlovid, as well as Merck’s molnupiravir, which are meant to treat higher-risk COVID-19 patients, according to Bloomberg. 

The people who spoke to the outlet said the approval could come as soon as Wednesday, though they acknowledged that the plan was subject to change.
