The drug, which is administered via injection, could reduce the risk of hospitalization and death by around 80%, as reported by China Daily

However, there is no evidence that the new antibody therapy will work against Omicron or other variants of the virus. 

One of the benefits of the antibody therapy is that it will offer protection for those who are unvaccinated against COVID-19.
