Good news: There are more signs of progress in the fight against COVID-19 with the announcement of new treatment options.

The FDA granted Emergency Use Authorization for two at-home COVID-19 oral antiviral medications that may help reduce the severity of COVID-related illness in certain populations.

Pfizer’s pill, Paxlovid, is meant to treat high-risk patients ages 12 and older and Merck’s pill, Molnupiravir, will treat high-risk adult patients who are sick with COVID-19. The FDA said that both treatments are available by prescription only and should be initiated as soon as possible after diagnosis of COVID-19 and within five days of symptom onset.

For more information, consult with your physician and reference the FDA’s announcement at https://bit.ly/3JFJ5xN

[ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:

What basic facts should every woman know about cervical cancer?

Cervical cancer is a "stealth" disease that doesn't usually appear until it has advanced, with symptoms like:

abnormal bleeding between periods

any pain or bleeding during in*******se

A Pap test is the best "early warning" tool, because it can help locate precancerous lesions.

HPV (human papillomavirus) is the greatest risk factor.

Vaccines like Gardasil can protect against types of HPV linked to cervical cancer in women

Vaccines can protect men against approximately 90% of ge***al warts cases

Talk to your doctor about how often you need to be screened for cervical cancer.]
