Molnupiravir has been kicking around since 2014 and is basically a dud. COVID is like the Walking-Dead-zombie apocalypse for old drugs. The lazy way to make money, just dust-off low to moderately effective compounds and devise a trial and endpoints to show any type of efficacy, breath new life into any of these turds, all in the name of public safety to fight the extinction-level pandemic known as COVID. What happened to good old R&D and real drug discovery and research? I'm sure there will be more coming behind this one, and the media will hold them up as your next great hope (hype).They probably want to get the government reimbursement on the r&d so they need to submit for approval.
I didn’t read any of the other post or the links mentioned.
