According to the latest study results released by UAE's MoHAP, Sotrovimab is 100% effective in preventing death.

The anti-viral medicine for COVID-19 showed that 97% of the recipients recovered within 14 days and prevented ICU admission in 99% of the cases.

The study was carried out between June 30 and July 13 in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Department of Health and Dubai Health Authority (DHA).

Over 6,100 patients were given the anti-viral medicine, of which 52% were aged 50 or above and had multiple pre-existing medical conditions.

The UAE was one of the first countries to receive the shipment of the medicine and had approved its use in June.
