Since April, more than 2,000 packages of Plakvenil will be distributed in all regions of Ukraine, 750 more will be left in Kyiv. Telegram-channel Coronavirus_Info reported this with reference to the Minister of Health Maksym Stepanov.
“We have already prepared the appropriate distribution. We were given 3,000 packs of the medicine. 2,250 will be sent to the regions and 750 will remain in Kyiv for the quick response. Tomorrow a contract with UkrMedPostach will be signed and the medicines will go to the regions,” Stepanov said.
It is also noted that no cure for coronavirus infection exists yet, and patients are given symptomatic treatment. In particular, Plaquenil is used for severe and extremely severe forms of coronavirus disease, but only on doctor’s prescription.
Earlier it was reported that Ukraine expected peak Covid-19 incidence in near future.
While worldwide, the number of Covid-19 fatalities exceeded 53,000.
