Jharkhand wants to import Remdesivir, seeks Centre's nod

Apr 19, 2021 07:43 IST | By Editorji News Desk

The Jharkhand government has reached out to some pharma companies in Bangladesh for importing the antiviral drug Remdesivir, which is used in the treatment of serious Covid patients, Chief Minister Hemant Soren tweeted on Sunday. He said the state government has sought the centre's permission for buying the drug from abroad. The drug has been in short supply in several states because of massive Covid caseloads brought on by the rapid second wave of infections. The government has also decided to ramp up the production of the drug to plug the demand-supply gap.
