    I know CNN isn’t considered a news station. But don’t they have some sort of obligation to telling the truth or do they simply say what democrats want to hear?

    Just as all successful multicellular organisms have done for 500,000,000 years, I used my immune system to destroy the covid 19 virus and have achieved immunity.

    Now anti science loons are trying to force me to take medication I don't need, for a condition I don't have, supposedly to save people I don't know, for reasons they are unable to explain.

    This isn't a solution. Covid will become drug resistant in 6-12 months exactly like HIV did. Vaccines are the only solution that will end this pandemic.

    This is exactly the same as all the as the antivirals trip endorsed this is not about health but control and money

    Pretty shocking when you REALLY look at the Omicron numbers…
    "UK has 12 confirmed Omicron deaths out of 45,000 confirmed cases. A fatality rate of 0.027% would get Omicron FDA approval. "Standardized Mortality Rates after dose 1 were 0.42 & 0.37 for Pfizer & Moderna, and were 0.35 & 0.34 after dose 2" Omicron is better than Pfizer or Moderna."

  • Mary C on December 23, 2021

    So in these studies, they knowingly let people die? And doesn't the fact that they keep saying it's a "game changer" in order to have a game changer, don't you have to be playing a game?

  • Richard C on December 23, 2021

    Wow, people posting comments here need to seek help. Only seek to attack… and that’s pathetic.
    Best question to address is the ability to be tested and get on this pill in the proper timeline. Doesn’t sound like it will be effective, since you can’t get the pills without a positive covid test. 🤷

  • Redjetsen on December 23, 2021

    Anti virals work…the vaxx is not working, from the start mandates were not going to work because the vaxx does not work. They can say vaxxed have less of a chance of dying…from a disease that has a survival rate of 99% in unvaccinated. This is not smallpox… comparing vaccines is a fallacy

    Just try to wrap your head around it and then process it after you unpack the details. Then you'll find closure and walk in your truth while displaying incomprehensible bravery and courage. After that you can reach out by saying: This is heartbreaking! You'll know that you're empowered when you speak truth to power. Am I right? Now THAT'S empowering!. That's how you embrace your authenticity as a thought leader, and find your voice while honoring your sacred oath as an expert, by upholding our sacred democracy and implementing tectonic fundamental transformations and epic comprehensive changes for social justice. I'm making the world a better place by changing it and by expressing my queer authenticity. Right? I think I'll celebrate and champion my very unique and special lived experience, with some self care, because that's very healing!

  • Tony Chowles on December 23, 2021

    Merck is the same Co that manufactures Ivermectin.Is this the same pill at a higher price?

  • denise eugene on December 23, 2021

    Don’t care what ANYONE says. The democrats are fighting Covid like what it is. A war! And I am not a Democrat. Other developed nations wish they have what we do!

  • manes hipocrates on December 23, 2021

    Even if you approve therapeutics made of fatty burgers, the covidiots in this country will blame Biden and not take it. Good luck trying to convince those who believe in infodemic to take it.

    this presentation brought to you by Pfizer(tm)

  • Heliosviewer on December 23, 2021

    I see a lot of imbeciles virologists here in the comments that gives medical advice. The fact the meck covid pill name is Molnupiravir for some “ imbeciles experts” it sounds like ivermectin. IT’s NOT THE SAME THING. And is not doing the same thing. The ivermectin is making JRE from meat head in a larger meathead the other one Molnupiravir is for helping one going though a covid infection.

    CNN followers beware.
    The thumbnail made that look like a red pill.

  • Kevin Meiz on December 23, 2021

    An alternative to treating this virus? So are leftist weirdos who dislike anyone taking alternative means to treat this virus okay with this alternative?

    I’m just very concerned about their mental well-being with such news of an alternative drug that disregards the one and only (in their minds) true means to treat this…..a vaccine that doesn’t actually work as advertised.

  • Sean Tonnesen on December 23, 2021

    Statement: “Word is that CNN and its new owners want Jeff Zucker out, not only because of the turmoil of Fredo Cuomo, the Don Lemon (“the dumbest man on television”) escapades, and so much else, but primarily because his ratings have gone to an all-time low, and the so-called “network” is rudderless. In any event, that’s great news for America. Maybe CNN can be brought back to what it was in the good old days of the legendary Ted Turner. Jeff will always bomb, just as he did at NBC years before!” The real President Donald J. Trump

  • Sean Tonnesen on December 23, 2021

    CNN is a failed network.

  • Sean Tonnesen on December 23, 2021

    So they change the name of Ivermectin that they would not approve for COVID treatment and say they are going to save everyone with this NEW drug. What a joke. But all the fools who got the jab will be happy.

  • David Ross on December 23, 2021

    If only the orange man would have been quick to respond 800k Americans wouldn't have perished because of this virus. The tricky part is testing and when to even test. People could likely write off a cough as simply a cold before other symptoms develop. When is it too late to seek these treatments after symptoms develop and before they worsen? Within 3 days is too rigid of a time frame, especially in places where testing and positive cases are ramping up.

    Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Him. There is no other intermediary. May Jesus Bless you, trust Him, give your life – and He will take care of it. Christ's Coming Is Near. Don't wait, come back while you still have time

    Not taking that "vaccine".

    It is probably the Mark of the Beast.

  • Hadley Pleasanton on December 23, 2021

    Looks like liver sausage. 🤷‍♂

  • Jack Komisar on December 23, 2021

    Merck's Molnupiravir and Pfizer's Paxlovid will probably need to be given together to minimize the ability of the virus to develop resistance. The same logic applies to antibiotics, which treat bacterial infection and are often given in pairs, and antimalarials (drugs against the malaria parasite), which should be given in pairs.
