This info is just part of the larger article.  I have only snipped part of the article, but the URL will take you to the entire article.  Not sure if anyone here can afford it as Merch is charging the US government $714 for a five day course of the drug which cost $17.74 to produce. :bash:

Merck’s Covid Pill Available in Philippines (10 a.m. HK)
Merck’s Covid-19 pill molnupiravir is now available for patients in the Philippines, Vice President Leni Robredo said. 

Under a deal, Ayala Corp.-controlled QualiMed Health Network will prescribe the medicine to patients referred by Robredo’s office, which runs a telehealth project. Merck’s pill can be used under a special permit issued to selected hospitals while local regulators are reviewing its application for emergency authorization, Food and Drug Administration head Eric Domingo said separately.
