Minister Sudhakar says ‘Remdesivir’ not a life-saving drug for Corona patients

Mysuru, Apr. 22, 2021 ( Health and Education Minister Dr. K. Sudhakar today said that the Remdesivir injections which people consider as a life-saving drug for Corona patients are not so.
Yes. Speaking to the presspersons in Mysuru today Minister Sudhakar said, “it is just a conception among the people about Remdesivir, whereas steroid is more effective. Remdesivir is not on the WHO drug list. As a doctor myself I would say that steroid is more effective than Remdesivir. Other alternate medicines are available at a lesser price. Production of Remdesivir was stopped as Corona cases had decreased. But again demand has increased due to an increase in the cases. Supply will be restored within a few days. About 8-9 companies in the country are producing Remdesivir,” he explained.Minister- Sudhakar –Shocking- Statement -Sanjeevini Remedicivir
On the occasion, he also informed that a meeting would be held today after Chief Minister B.S. Yedyurappa is discharged from the hospital. “A decision will be taken soon, please wait for two more hours. You will get complete information about the vaccine. The Govt. of India is not biased regarding the distribution of the vaccine. Opposition parties are unnecessarily making allegations. Where did the vaccines come to Rajasthan from? Did it come from America?! Whether ruling party leaders or opposition party leaders, whoever speaks about Corona will become cheap in front of the people,” he charged.
In his reply to the Oxygen problem in Bengaluru, he clarified that the problem will be set right today. “We have written to the Union Health Minister regarding the shortage of oxygen and requested to provide oxygen which will be sufficient till the next one month,” he added.
