It's a narrow-spectrum drug, and really, there are no broad-spectrum antivirals , at this point.
The FDA is warning HIV patients not to combine two widely used antiviral drugs because they can cause dangerous heart rhythms.
Antiviral Drugs Could Blast the Common Cold —Should We Use Them.
Certain drugs in clinical use – such as antiviral drugs used to treat HIV – work by impairing similar enzymes to BACE 2.
Antiviral drug resistance is a crucial factor that frequently determines the success of long-term therapy for chronic hepatitis B .
The virus can rapidly slip on new disguises to evade our immune systems, and it can become resistant to antiviral drugs.
There are no recommended antiviral drugs to treat a highly contagious form of viral conjunctivitis called pinkeye.
Characterisation of the hepatitis C virus (HCV) life cycle has enabled the development of direct-acting antiviral drugs that target different steps in the viral replication process.

In science:

Due to the intervention of antiviral drugs, we assume that drugs reduce the infection rate in the infected cells (T ∗ ) by 1 − γ (t) [0 ≤ γ (t) ≤ 1].
A dynamic Bayesian nonlinear mixed-effects model of HIV response incorporating medication adherence, drug resistance and covariates
In most viral dynamic studies, investigators assumed that either drug efficacy was constant over treatment time [Perelson and Nelson (1999); Wu and Ding (1999)] or antiviral regimens had perfect effect in blocking viral replication [Ho et al. (1995); Perelson et al. (1996)].

We also found that, according to antiviral drug efficacy model (4), the baseline viral load had a positive effect on drug efficacy, while the baseline CD4 cell count had a negative effect on it.
A dynamic Bayesian nonlinear mixed-effects model of HIV response incorporating medication adherence, drug resistance and covariates
In summary, the mechanism-based dynamic model is powerful and efficient to characterize relations between antiviral response and medication adherence, drug susceptibility as well as baseline characteristics, although some biological assumptions are required.
