Since more than 20,000 boxes of drugs entered China on March 17, Pfizer's new coronavirus treatment drug "Nimatevir/Ritonavir Tablets" (Paxlovid) has been distributed to Jilin, Shanghai, Guangdong, Fujian, Jiangxi, at least 8 provinces including Shandong, Zhejiang and Guangxi are on the front line of clinical treatment of new crowns. Several experts in the treatment of new crown patients said: "New crown antiviral drugs should be used early in the course of the disease, focusing on patients with high-risk factors and a tendency to become severely ill."

According to the data, Paxlovid is an oral small-molecule novel coronavirus treatment drug for the treatment of mild to moderate adult patients with novel coronavirus with high risk factors for progression to severe disease. Published clinical trial results showed that taking the drug orally reduced the risk of hospitalization and death by 89 percent.

In addition to Paxlovid, another domestically-developed monoclonal antibody in China has not yet entered the substantive sales stage, but its safety and efficacy have been supported by certain data. In terms of payment, the above two drugs will be "paid by the medical insurance department according to regulations".
