The study will test the safety and effectiveness of molnupiravir, an antiviral study drug, which may reduce symptoms and recovery time for people who tested
positive for COVID-19 in the last 7 days.
This clinical study will heIp researchers Iearn whether the study drug:
Decreases symptoms and how well it controls the COVID-19 infection
Is handled well by the body
What requirements are in place to help protect clinical trial participants?
There are rules in place to help protect the rights, safety, and well-being of people who volunteer tor research studies. These rules are put in place to make sure studies follow strict scientific and ethical guidelines.
Before a clinical research study can begin a review board must review the study. This group is called an IRB
or institutional review board. An IRB is made up of doctors, scientists and members of the community

Why participate in this study
A clinical trial is a research study that tries to answer questions about how medicines work in the people who take them. Researchers run studies to test whether an investigational medication is safe and effective. These studies may help doctors find new ways to help, prevent, detect, or treat health problems. Information learned from this clinical research study may help other people in the future.
Additional care may also be provided for COVID-19 for those participating. This may include:
Treatment for COVID-19 and related symptoms
Is this mandatory?
Will it cost anything?
Taking part in this study is voluntary and the participant may stop at any time for any reason.
