“I receive a lot of inquiries about the availability of medicines in pharmacies in the region. Now the demand for antiviral and antibiotics has increased significantly, but so far not all pharmacies can cope with the large demand. It is necessary to increase the stock of medicines in demand in pharmaceutical warehouses and private pharmacies,”the governor said.
We will remind, earlier the head of the Ministry of Health of the Orenburg region admitted the problem, explaining that the interruptions in the supply of medicines arose against the background of rush demand. At the same time, residents of Orenburg are buying medicines for future use.
According to the ministry, federal pharmacy chains have sufficient quantities of antiviral drugs, cephalosporin antibiotics, lidocaine, and water for injection. With an increase in demand, drugs are quickly sold out, and therefore there may be interruptions before a new arrival of goods at the pharmacy. In the coming days, the regional pharmacy warehouse will receive another batch of drugs: levofloxacin, lidocaine, afludol and water for injection.
There are 953 pharmacies in the region. In remote villages, medications are sold by health workers through 101 outpatient clinics and 912 FAPs.
