ReutersThe CEO of the largest pharmaceutical company Pfizer, Albert Burla, announced on his Twitter that he had passed a positive test for COVID-19.

If anyone did not know, Pfizer is one of the largest manufacturers of the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine and one of the first in the world to patent and license its drug. The humor of the situation lies in the fact that Burla himself was vaccinated against COVID-19 four times.

It would seem that a positive test for covid by the director of the largest company that produces a vaccine against this disease is not the best combination of circumstances for the image of the product, but Burla still did not miss the chance to “advertise” a new drug: PAXLOVID.

This is a new tool that helps patients who have already become infected with the coronavirus. It is worth noting that the drug is not approved in the US, but has been tested by WHO and has been recommended for the treatment of patients with mild forms of the disease, but a high risk of hospitalization.

According to rumors, US President Joe Biden was treated with this drug at the end of July 2022 and was able to pass a negative test for COVID-19 less than two weeks after the first positive result.
