Posted on January 27th, 2022

There are now additional treatment options for selected groups of people with coronavirus who are thought to be at greater risk. These additional treatments need to be given soon after you get a positive PCR test result to be most effective.

  • groups of people thought to be at high risk and with a clinical condition that’s been prioritised for treatment
  • those taking part in a national study called PANORAMIC

  • a positive PCR test for coronavirus in the last 5 days
