(Adapted from NHS website (updated 07/02/2022)

The NHS is offering new antibody and antiviral treatments to people with coronavirus (Covid-19) who are at highest risk of becoming seriously ill.

Those who are eligible (see below) should already have received a letter from the NHS explaining the treatment options and what to do. If you have not been contacted, but think you may be eligible for treatment, contact your GP practice or call 111.

Two types of Covid-19 treatment are available:

Sotrovimab is a biological medicine. It is also known as a neutralising monoclonal antibody (nMAb).

Molnupiravir is an antiviral medicine.

These treatments can help some people manage their Covid-19 symptoms and reduce the risk of becoming seriously ill.
