Just 70 people get new Covid-19 treatment in Ireland

Just 70 people have been given a new Covid-19 treatment in Ireland, the HSE has revealed.

Monoclonal antibodies treatment sotrovimab, from GSK, is an infusion given through a drip in hospitals, but it is not necessary to stay overnight for this.

It should be given within five days of symptoms starting.

The first delivery of about 1,000 doses arrived on January 20, with the expectation this would be used to treat people who are especially vulnerable to severe illness from the virus.

This was published in the Irish Examiner on Tuesday 15 February
