The public is not getting the full benefit of antiviral drugs to treat COVID-19, so the Biden administration announced plans Tuesday to expand access to the medications.

The antiviral Paxlovid, from Pfizer, was in short supply at the beginning of the year when COVID-19 rates were spiking, so doctors got used to rationing it to their most vulnerable patients. But now, with plenty of Paxlovid to go around, people are still getting very ill and dying who might be saved by the medication, administration officials said in a late Monday briefing.

So the administration has committed to providing more public and medical education, more doses and more centers where the antivirals will be available.
