Global News published this video item, entitled “COVID-19: Health Canada to approve Pfizer’s oral pill Paxlovid | LIVE” – below is their description.
Health Canada is expected to announce Monday it has approved Pfizer’s Paxlovid antiviral pill for use in the fight against COVID-19. Global News has learned the agency has given regulatory authorization for the pill.
Last month, the federal government announced it signed a purchase agreement with Pfizer to buy up to one million courses of its treatment, pending regulatory approval.
Pfizer began a rolling submission with Health Canada in December for Paxlovid, which it said is designed to block a key enzyme needed for the COVID-19 virus to multiply.
The pill has also been approved for use in the United States by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
