DHS Encourages Use Of Antiviral Medication For COVID

The Department of Health Services says that COVID antiviral medication is now widely available for patients in Wisconsin. Dr. Jon Meiman says those drugs were in very limited supply in the first months of the year, but that’s changed.

“But fortunately, we’ve kind of moved on from that point, we now have enough to really treat people here in the state that are likely to benefit from either of these drugs.”

Anyone with a confirmed case of COVID who doesn’t need full hospitalization is encouraged to get a prescription for one of these drugs.
