New drug to fight COVID called the ‘Holy Grail’


According to a report on Fox News, it appears that a new drug, Molnupiravir, developed to battle COVID-19 is showing tremendous results in second stage human trials. It stopped the Coronavirus dead in its tracks in the 182 people that were tested.

First-stage testing of the experimental COVID-19 pill called Molnupiravir, by Merck and Ridgeback Biotherapeutics, showed promising signs of effectiveness in reducing the virus in patients.
