The Government will set the prices of Remdesivir, says Gadkari
The government is putting its thoughts on fixing the price of Remdesivir amidst the growing black marketing. The Center has assured to come upon a decision soon.
The Center has chosen to expand the creation of against viral medication Remdesivir. It will be given to individuals at the government's cost, said Union Minister Nitin Gadkari.
This comes after a few instances of black-marketing of Remdesivir became known amid the Covid-19.
"There was a shortage of Remdesivir injection. Because of this, incidents of black marketing took place, several people lost their lives as they have not received Remdesivir, so we decided to increase its production," Gadkari said.
"But we tried (and to got manufacturing rights), Remdesivir will be provided to people at government's price. Now, I think there will be no black marketing, or no person will die due to lack of it, there is no reservation, can be provided to other states when there will be surplus," he added.
