COVID-19 News

I am Tasha Ramsey, an infectious diseases pharmacist and co-chair of the COVID-19 Therapeutics and Prophylactics Advisory Group. This advisory group reviews the evidence for COVID-19 medications and makes recommendations for their use in Nova Scotia. While people are still testing positive for COVID-19, I hear Nova Scotians have questions about nirmatrelvir/ritonavir, also known as Paxlovid – a medication that may be used to treat people with COVID-19.
