Molnupiravir, the investigational drug used to prevent the spread of COVID-19, is now officially available on the HealthNow app. Molnupiravir helped cut the rate of hospitalization and death by half in a trial of mild-to-moderately ill patients who had at least one risk factor for the disease, according to reports.
COVID-19 positive patients interested in Molnupiravir may consult with a doctor on the HealthNow app to check eligibility. Just use promo code MOLNUCON to get P100 off the Consult Later service.
HealthNow gives users convenient access to healthcare providers for teleconsultation, medicine deliveries, and soon, home-service diagnostics through its easy-to-use app.
KonsultaMD meanwhile, a portfolio company of 917Ventures – the country’s largest corporate venture builder wholly-owned by Globe, is also offering patients a fast-pass service for only P500 per consultation. Talk to a doctor within a waiting time of 5 minutes or get your money back.
Regular KonsultaMD plans remain as low as P60 per month for individuals, and P150 per month for groups of five.
“Our situation has taken away the reluctance of many Filipinos to try telehealth services. People are looking for ways to stay safe from the virus while our hospitals are overwhelmed with patients. KonsultaMD has become a platform that connects Filipinos to much-needed medical consults for non-emergency cases,” said Cholo Tagaysay, CEO at KonsultaMD.
