Molnupiravir – Covid-19 Treatment

Molnupiravir is an oral medication that may be used to treat Covid-19, prevent serious symptoms, and shorten infections.

What is molnupiravir and how does it work?

Molnupiravir is an oral antiviral medication that is currently being explored in clinical trials as a potential treatment for Covid-19. Molnupiravir works by causing genetic copying errors in the SARS-CoV-2 virus. This ‘lethal mutagenesis’ affects the integrity of the virus and impairs its ability to replicate and spread.

What are the benefits of Molnupiravir as Covid-19 treatment?

Molnupiravir has demonstrated several benefits against Covid-19:

  • Treatments may shorten the duration of infection and reduce the severity of symptoms.
  • Molnupiravir may also reduce the amount of time it takes for the virus to clear the body and thus produce a negative Covid test result following infection.
  • If administered within the first few days of infection, molnupiravir may prevent serious symptoms.
  • In October 2021, Merck announced that molnupiravir reduced the chance of hospitalization or death by 50% in one study, as compared to study participants who took a placebo.
