Canada secures COVID oral antiviral treatment

Canada's Minister of Public Services and Procurement Filomena Tassi stated on Friday that the government secured the new oral anti-viral COVID-19 treatment coming from both Merck & Co. Inc. and Pfizer Inc.

Tassi said that the country secured one million doses of the pill from Pfizer, alongside 500,000 doses of the antiviral medication coming from Merck. The treatments will start being administered as soon as Canada's health agencies approve them.

At the same time, Tassi said that the country has more than enough coronavirus vaccines in its supply for booster shots, adding that it also has enough jabs to immunize every child between the ages of five and 11.
