Russia has established full-cycle production of 14 of the 17 covid-19 drugs recommended by the Ministry of health. This was stated by the Minister of industry and trade Denis Manturov at a meeting on the development of the situation with coronavirus and measures to prevent infection.
According to him, work is underway with China to purchase ready-made dosage forms if necessary. “We assume that this set, which is available today, will meet the needs of the health care system,” he said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin held a meeting with the government and virologist experts. The Russian leader expressed confidence that the country will overcome the coronavirus epidemic with minimal losses. However, only if all actions to combat the disease are coordinated, organized and disciplined.
He also raised the issue of reducing the number of non-working days. He promised to consult virologists on this issue.
