NEW DELHI: The government on Friday said Remdesivir production was being ramped up and soon 3 lakh vials would be produced every day. The government has approved 25 new manufacturing sites for Remdesivir since April 12 to increase production. Besides, it has also stopped export of the drug to cater to local demand.
“Production capacity is now ramped up to more than 90 lakh vials per month, earlier it was 40 lakh vials a month. Very soon, 3 lakh vials a day will be produced . Monitoring is being done on daily basis. We will not leave any stone unturned to supply Remdesivir,” chemicals and fertilisers minister Mansukh Mandaviya said.
The Centre has asked states to ensure judicious use of Remdesivir as per clinical management protocol for Covid- 19. States have also been asked to conduct campaigns to address possible black marketing or hoarding of drugs used in Covid-19 treatment.
