    Impressive - I might be getting ahead of myself here, but I can imagine the recent investment in this class of drugs may result in improved treatments for cold & flu treatments as well, no?

    Great news on Merck's molnupiravir, the first orally available (capsule) antiviral for COVID, as it reduced hospitalizations and deaths by 50% in mild to moderately ill, unvaccinated COVID patients in an interim phase III analysis and the drug was extremely well tolerated with no major side effects observed. Specifically, the interim analysis showed that 7.3% of patients treated with molnupiravir were hospitalized within 29 days and of the patients who received a placebo, 14.1% were hospitalized or died by day 29. No deaths were reported in patients who were given molnupiravir with

    This post was inspired by a good question from a friend. The Times article below does a good job of comparing rates of myocarditis in vaccinated vs. unvaccinated people and there's roughly a 5-10X increase in myocarditis from COVID vs. in vaccinated people - not to mention a far greater risk of death from COVID - and almost all of the cases of myocarditis in vaccinated people resolved quickly. Posting this because we're starting to see a bunch of anti-vaxx misinformation on this topic, as there was a preprint of an unreviewed paper that has been retracted, as it had a bad math err

    I think this is such a small, very small minority of people resisting the vaccine. United Airlines is now reporting 320 of their ~67,000 workforce not meeting the vaccination requirement, down from 593 on Tuesday. The Department of Defense said that the number of employees and service members with at least one dose is at 95%.
