A pilot project is being launched in the UK to test coronavirus pills.

We are talking about pills that people with a positive coronavirus test can take while at home. Molnupiravir, also known as Lagevrio, may be offered to the most vulnerable patients before Christmas.

British Health Minister Sajid Javid is expected to announce the launch of a national pilot project to test this medical device.

The project will be aimed at preventing vulnerable patients with coronavirus from having a complex course of the disease and needing hospital treatment.

Molnupiravir can be taken by those who have tested positive for COVID-19 and have at least one risk factor for developing a serious illness, such as obesity, age over 60, diabetes, or heart disease.

The British National Health Service (NHS) will conduct courses on taking pills for vulnerable patients and patients with immunosuppressant. Medical equipment will be issued to patients only within 48 hours after a positive test for COVID-19.

Hospital managers and general practitioners have already been informed that the NHS will set up a number of COVID-19 drug delivery points so that patients receive medicines as soon as possible.
