On Wednesday, June 29, the Ministry of Health addressed Israelis who are at risk with recommendations regarding treatment in case of infection with COVID-19.

First of all, the recommendations concern people over 60 years old and Israelis with chronic diseases. The Ministry of Health says that two drugs have recently appeared for the treatment of coronavirus – Molnupiravir and Paxlovid. These drugs reduce the risk of severe illness and death if taken within the first five days of symptom onset.

Therefore, the Ministry of Health recommends taking a PCR test at the first symptoms of coronavirus, and in case of a positive result, immediately contact your family doctor for treatment.

In a message distributed by the Ministry of Health, it is emphasized several times: “Remember! These drugs save lives only if you start taking them in the first days of illness.”
