A lot of luggage is going to come from America in three planes, out of which two ships will arrive tomorrow. Remedesivir’s four and a half million doses are being received from the American company Gilead. Remedisvir is also coming from Russia. Apart from this, medicine is also being ordered from the MRIS. The daily domestic production of Remadecivir in India is 67,000. Necessary goods are being provided so that 6-7 domestic companies producing Remeddivir can produce more than 3 lakhs daily.
Medicines coming from France, Germany and Switzerland as well
Medicines like Tosilizumab are also being brought from countries like France, Germany and Switzerland. The help that is being received from outside is being sent by the governments, companies, many organizations of many countries. A high-level team has been formed to send the help that is coming to different places as soon as possible. In this, officers of various ministries have been kept.
Time is not being done in formality
As soon as the luggage arrives at the airport, the officials of the Finance Ministry clear it with a customary formality. All these types of goods, including custom, have been made duty free. The people of the Ministry of Health and the Department of Pharma are deciding to send them where they are needed. Air Force helicopters and aircraft are there to help, so that goods can be sent immediately to the required places. If there is raw material, then those companies are sent immediately.
Efforts to become self-reliant continue
The effort is that until our domestic companies are in such a condition that they start making these goods in sufficient quantity like last year. Till then external help will be needed, after that we will become self-sufficient. The problem with oxygen was that most of the oxygen-producing plants are in the eastern part of India, whereas the need is in northern and western India. Transport of oxygen has been a major challenge. All our embassies are engaged to coordinate international cooperation. Foreign Secretary Harshavardhan Shringla also has a byte, he can also use it.
