‘We May Need Even More’: Biden Doubles Pfizer’s Covid Pills Order
President Biden announced that the United States government doubled its order for Pfizer’s Covid pills, bringing the total order to 20 million treatment courses.
I’m pleased to say that on Christmas Eve, we shipped out the first batch of these pills that we received. The United States has more pills than any other country in the world, and our supply is going to ramp up over the coming months as more of these pills are manufactured. Today, I’m directing my team to work with Pfizer to double our order from 10 million to 20 million treatment courses to be delivered in the months ahead. We may need even more. These pills are going to dramatically decrease hospitalizations and deaths from Covid-19. They’re a game changer, and have the potential to dramatically alter the impact of Covid-19, the impact it’s had on this country and our people.
