COVID-19 cases are on the rise again in many parts of the world, and it is important to be aware of the risks and take steps to protect yourself.
The good news is that there are now a number of effective treatments available for COVID-19, including antiviral medications. Antivirals can help to reduce the severity of COVID-19 and the risk of hospitalization and death.
How antiviral medications can help
Antiviral medications work by targeting different stages of the virus’s life cycle. For example, some antivirals prevent the virus from entering cells, while others prevent the virus from replicating inside cells.
Who should take antiviral medications for COVID-19?
Antiviral medications are recommended for people who are at high risk of severe illness from COVID-19, such as:
- People who are over 70 years old
- People with underlying medical conditions, such as heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, or cancer
- People who are immunocompromised
