Pfizer to sell treatment pills to the government

Pfizer has announced an agreement with the U.S. government to sell it $5.29 billion worth of its COVID-19 treatment pills. As yet, however, the drug has not been cleared by regulators.

Pfizer’s experimental antiviral drug, Paxlovid, is currently being reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and a decision could come sometime in December.

The pills have been shown to be effective in treating COVID-19 in the early phase of the disease, significantly reducing hospitalization and death. The federal government has agreed to pay about $529 for each course of treatment, consisting of 30 pills over five days. 

FDA authorizes booster shots for all

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has reacted to several states giving COVID-19 booster shots to everyone regardless of eligibility. The agency now says everyone 18 and older is eligible to receive the Pfizer or Moderna booster shot.

"The FDA has determined that the currently available data support expanding the eligibility of a single booster dose of the Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines to individuals 18 years of age and older," said Peter Marks, M.D., Ph.D., director of the FDA's Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research.

The FDA says people who were inoculated with either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines would be eligible for a booster six months after their second shot. People who got the Johnson & Johnson vaccine become eligible two months after their first shot.

Many COVID-19 patients may never regain sense of smell

One major symptom of COVID-19 is a temporary loss of smell. Scientists now say that for an estimated 1.6 million U.S. coronavirus patients, the loss may actually be permanent.

The condition is known as anosmia. Researchers writing in JAMA Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery say many people who have recovered from the coronavirus still have no sense of smell six months or more after the onset of symptoms.

“In the last couple of months, my colleagues and I noted a dramatic increase in the number of patients seeking medical attention for olfactory dysfunction.” study author Jay Piccirillo, an otolaryngologist at Washington University in St. Louis and an editor at JAMA Otolaryngology, told Gizmodo in a statement.

Around the nation

  • New York: State and local officials have stopped short of reimposing mask mandates and other restrictions in the face of sharply rising COVID-19 cases. “Nobody wants to go back to what we saw last year where we had mandates imposed and businesses shutting down,” Monroe County Executive Adam Bello told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle

  • Massachusetts: Massachusetts was the latest state to open booster shots to all residents aged 18 and older before the FDA acted. Gov. Charlie Baker likely made that decision because the number of cases in his state has risen sharply in recent weeks.

  • South Dakota: The Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has settled a complaint with Smithfield Foods about the company’s coronavirus safety measures during a massive outbreak last year at a South Dakota pork processing plant. The company will draw up a plan to control future outbreaks and pay a $13,500 fine.

  • Florida: Attorney General Ashley Moody has filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration, claiming its vaccination mandate for health care workers is “unlawful.” Moody also said the mandate threatens to make the shortage of health care workers worse.

  • Illinois: In a Facebook post, Naperville Mayor Steve Chirico called on state officials to withdraw the statewide mask mandate, even though cases of the coronavirus are increasing across the state. Chirico said Illinois is the only midwestern state still enforcing a mask mandate.

FTC Video: Avoid COVID-19 Stimulus Payment Scams | Federal Trade Commission


Related Videos On: Avoid COVID-19 Stimulus Payment Scams | Federal Trade Commission


Scammers are following the headlines about economic impact payments. Know how to spot and avoid the scams to keep your money and information to yourself. Learn more at https://ftc.gov/coronavirus. ********************************** Transcript: Hi, I’m Becca Kelly Slaughter, Acting Chair of the Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency. You’ve probably heard the great news that the American Rescue Plan is now law. That means lots of people will soon be getting desperately-needed economic impact payments—some folks call them stimulus payments—of up to fourteen hundred dollars. Many of you have been here before, so you know these funds will come through direct deposit, check, or debit card. But we here at the FTC would like to remind you that scammers follow the headlines, too. So here are a few sure ways to spot a scammer trying to take your money or personal information. First, know that nobody in the government will ask you to pay anything up front to get your economic impact payment. There’s no way to get your payment faster, and there’s no form to fill out. That’s simply a scam. Second, the government will not call, email, text, or message you on social media to ask for your Social Security, bank account, or credit card number. Anyone who does is a scammer. Third, anyone who tells you to pay by money transfer, gift card, or cryptocurrency is a scammer. No matter WHY they say you need to pay. If you spot these scams, tell the FTC at ReportFraud.ftc.gov. Every report helps us try to stop scammers. And let me say a word to would-be scammers: the FTC will use all of its enforcement authority to come after bad actors who try to take advantage of people anxiously awaiting relief. To learn more about avoiding pandemic-related scams, visit FTC.gov/coronavirus. And help us spread the word. Share these tips and this video through your network. Thanks for helping us protect people from scams. ********************************** The Federal Trade Commission deals with issues that touch the economic life of every American.
