FDA approves new Covid medications

ALPENA, Mich–A big step in the fight against Covid has just reached Michigan.
The food and drug administration approved new oral medications, Paxlovid and Molnupiravir.

The antiviral medications can be used to treat mild to moderate Covid symptoms.

In Michigan there are limited amounts of the drug so eligibility will be based on a set of requirements established by the Michigan department of health and human services.
