In the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, the world has so far supported the vaccine. However, gradually pharmaceutical companies are also taking out capsules and other types of medicines to deal with it, which is likely to give a big lead in the war against Corona. One such drug is Merck’s Molnupiravir, which was approved by the UK a few days ago. If reports are to be believed, soon Molnupiravir may be approved for emergency use in India as well.

Currently, the drug is in the form of capsules, which have been declared suitable for the adult population. This drug has proved to be effective in reducing the symptoms of corona and no negative results have been seen. This drug has been found to be very effective in the initial days of corona infection.

Apart from the German company Merck’s Molnupiravir, the American company Pfizer also declared its pill (capsule) Paxlovid effective against Corona a few days ago. However, it may take some time for Pfizer’s drug to arrive in India at present. One reason for this is that Pfizer’s drug has not yet been approved for use by any country. That is, the effect of the capsule has not been confirmed by the health department of any country. In such a situation, along with Pfizer’s vaccine, it is estimated that it will take a long time for the medicine to arrive in India.

Scientists believe that as the cases of corona in India will decrease, in the same way, with the arrival of these medicines, the protection against the threat of any wave can be further strengthened. The best part is that this tablet can be taken at home only if prescribed by the doctor. This will reduce the burden of patients on hospitals and the biggest benefit will be to poor countries.
