Remdesivir is an FDA approved antiviral medication used to treat Covid-19. This drug works by binding to specific viral RNA and preventing it from replicating, which reduces viral load in the body. This, in turn, helps prevent symptoms from becoming severe or requiring hospitalization, as well as improve symptoms faster.

Considerations in Children
Remdesivir is available through an FDA EUA for the treatment of Covid-19 in hospitalized children under the age of 12 weighing 3.5 kg to <40 kg. There are insufficient data on the safety and efficacy of using remdesivir for COVID-19 in this population because they have not yet been evaluated in clinical trials.
