Xiannuoxin, co-developed by Nanjing-based Simcere Group, the Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica and the Wuhan Institute of Virology under the Chinese Academy of Sciences, is available for the treatment of mild and moderate COVID-19 patients and prevention of severe COVID-19 symptoms.

Currently, there are five orl Covid drugs granted approval to enter the Chinese market, including two imported drugs, Paxlovid and Molnupiravir, and three homegrown drugs, SIM0417, VV116, and Azvudine.

In addition, Japan-made oral COVID drug Xocova has applied to the National Medical Products Administration for entry into China’s market.
