Pfizer Inc’s antiviral Covid-19 pill
Via RTÉ News:
The European Union’s drug regulator has conditionally approved the use of Pfizer Inc’s antiviral Covid-19 pill for treating adults at risk of severe illness.
The endorsement by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) allows EU member states to deploy the drug after the regulator gave guidance for its emergency use late last year.
Italy, Germany and Belgium are among a handful of EU countries that have bought the drugs.
