Molnupiravir: COVID drug linked to mutations that could 'spread the illness', scientists say

  • A study has found that the antiviral drug molnupiravir can cause mutations in the COVID-19 virus, potentially leading to further infection and genetic diversity in the surviving viral population.
  • These mutations were more likely in older age groups, which aligns with the use of antiviral treatment in higher-risk individuals.
  • The findings of the study have raised questions about the overall benefits and risks of molnupiravir and similar drugs, urging regulators to consider the possibility of persistent antiviral-induced mutations when developing new treatments.
