1,054 new cases, 19 deaths; new treatment options on the horizon – .


Oregon health officials on Tuesday announced 1,054 new coronavirus cases and 19 COVID-19-related deaths.

A panel of federal advisers on Tuesday gave its approval for a one-of-a-kind antiviral pill to treat people infected with COVID-19. The drug, manufactured by Merck, still has many hurdles to overcome before it can be approved for treatment. The company said its latest data shows the drug reduced hospitalizations and deaths by 30% in infected adults, compared to a placebo.

An antidepressant drug already on the market shows promise for reducing serious illness in patients with COVID-19, researchers say. According to one study, deaths fell by 90% among study participants who had COVID-19 and were treated with fluvoxamine, compared to those who were not treated with the drug.
