The minister stressed that a drug developed in Russia will be able to interrupt the course of COVID-19 at the initial stage of infection. At the same time, according to him, no country in the world has a cure for coronavirus.
In Russia, the first domestic drug for the treatment of coronavirus was registered on November 12 – it is called Areplivir; by the end of the year, the drug will already be delivered to hospitals. The developer company “Promomed” said that they were the first to create an injectable form of farapiravir, despite the fact that the powder does not dissolve in water.
Earlier, the country’s President Vladimir Putin told the Russians about the cure for the coronavirus. He assures that in the near future, domestic drugs will be used in hospitals for the treatment of COVID-19.
