US-made Bamlanivimab and Etesevimab, the new drugs from Covid-19 are supposed to be delivered in all regions of Ukraine by the end of the week. Oleksandr Komarynda, the Deputy Healthcare Minister reported that on Facebook.
The medications are produced in the USA. The Ukrainian Embassy in this country sent the batch of these as humanitarian cargo.
Bamlanivimab and Etesevimab treat the coronarivus thanks to the action of monoclonal antibodies. Such medications can be recommended for patients who don't need any oxygen supplies but still belong to the group of high risk.
The Ukrainian official added that the European Commission signed the contract for delivery of these drugs and the framework agreement on joint procurement with Eli Lilly pharmaceutical companies. It means that Europe is going to treat its Covid patients with monoclonal antibodies, too.
