The Perm Territory will soon receive a large consignment of drugs from Kursk. The drugs are expected this week - until November 9th. It became possible to establish a regular supply of drugs due to personal agreements between Governor Dmitry Makhonin and the manufacturing company, the press service of the regional administration reports.
This will be the second large supply of pharmaceuticals from Pharmstandard. The region expects 20,000 packs of Arbidol and 150,000 packs of paracetamol. Taking into account the previous batch of drugs, Prikamye will receive 100,000 packages of Arbidol, 10,000 packages of Azithromycin and 150,000 packages of paracetamol in two weeks.
In the first half of November, new supplies of Azithromycin and Levofloxacin are expected from other manufacturers. In the absence of delays in labeling on the manufacturer's side, the agreed quantities should cover the monthly demand of the buyers at the current demand.
The issue of drug supply is relevant today due to the increased demand for medicines. Antiviral drugs are prescribed both for the treatment and prevention of ARVI and for the drug prevention of coronavirus.
Governor Dmitry Makhonin stressed that now all regions have difficulties in obtaining medicines associated with the introduction of a new labeling system in Russia. “The regional authorities and I personally will do our best to deliver medicines to the region's pharmacies as quickly as possible. The health and life of our fellow countrymen depends on this,”he said.
Pharmacy management said that drug supply difficulties remain. The shortage of a number of drugs, including antiviral and antibiotics, remains, while the demand for drugs among residents of the Perm Territory remains high.
