Bengaluru, May 16: Centre has allocated 4.25 lac vials of Remdesivir anti-viral injections this week from May 17 to 23, Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilisers D V Sadananda Gowda has said in Bengaluru on Sunday.

The Union Minister, who is also handling the Pharmaceutical ministry, said Centre has allocated a total 23 lac vials of Remdesivir injections to different States from May 17 to 23, of which the allotment to Karnataka is highest than other States.

Gowda, the former Chief Minister of Karnataka, has mentioned that the higher allocation of the Remdesivir anti-viral injections to the State was based on the larger number of active Covid infection cases in the State.

Karnataka has been allocated 10 vials of the Remdesivir anti-viral injections from April 21 till now out of the total allocation of 76 lac vials of the Remdesivir injections to all the States.

The allocation of Remdesivir anti-viral injections to different States in lac is as follows: Maharashtra 3.35, Tamil Nadu 1.45, Andhra Pradesh 1.4, Uttar Pradesh 1.3, Rajasthan 1.28 and Gujarat 91,000.

The allocation to other States is based on their active Covid infection cases, he explained.

The Union Minister explained that the country was receiving donations and aids from foreign countries in the form of medicines, oxygen cylinders, ventilators and such other things, of which 40,000 vials of Remdesivir is also included.

The Narendra Modi government is distributing all medicines or oxygen to all States in an equitable and transparent manner. The medicines received as donations and aid from foreign countries cannot be used for all Covid patients and the doctors will decide who should get and what kind of medicine, Gowda said advising people not to hoard medicines in their homes as it will deny the medicines to people who are in real need.

He asked the State Governments to take necessary steps to prevent hoarding or blackmarketing of the essential drugs.

The Union Minister said the Centre was constantly monitoring the supply of all medicines forming part of the Covid protocol and has created a separate helpline with Number 1800111244 and email: monitoring-nppa@gov.in.

He disclosed that there were 767 complaints during the second half of April while the number of complaints was barely 147 during the first two weeks of this month, indicating that the Covid protocol for distribution of medicines was returning to normalcy.

The Union Minister visited the Covid Care Centres and Vaccination centres in the Bengaluru North Parlimamentary Constituency represented by him.

    Union Minister for Chemicals and Fertilisers D V Sadananda Gowda might take a leaf out of Book of TRUMPet" and advice to give some Chemicals and Fertilisers for all Covid patients. Surely this method is better than hanging themselves.

    @Ajay Rebello In Maharashtra the camp has been set up and it's not miracle but natural healing enhanced by aiding it through Flu Diet. I'm repeating again- my US friend aged 56 with Lupus on chemo to suppress her immune system messaged me that she won't survive positive for covid (her daughter and son in law were positive too) I encouraged her and sent her the diet plan. For 5 days I didn't have any news from her but on 6th day she messaged me she recovered fully without any medicines at home itself by following the diet. He has set up camps in Rajasthan and Delhi border and treating farmers for free. A doctor couple got permission from Maharashtra Health Department and treated 4 patients with critical condition, after 5 days their test proved negative last year for the same reason his team got permission from Maharashtra this time which was denied that permission by Harshwardhan citing WHO protocols in March last year when he met him and presented his book, He agreed this diet will heal but he is helpless due to WHO pressure and promise of big money. Believe it or leave it he has healed 55000+ patients all over the world and counting.

    Normally i would not comment on such 'medical' advice but since you named i would like to point out that WHO does not have any powers ANYWHERE it is only a diplomatic medical agency that provides ADVISORIES only, proof is DOCTOR baba ramdev and his much publicized coronil.

    Do some more research and find who is funding WHO and who is dabbling in creation of viruses who owns the patents and how money is used to influence govts., who has invested big in vaccines who is advising the whole world to lockdown and other unscientific mandates you will know the truth. Just join the dots. Ramdev is their fund giver and fake guru getting quid pro quo, Why others are not given such helping hand except Hamare Do?

    Sir, Ramdesevir is not of any benefit in treatment of Corona; it's use has been discontinued every where in the world! Even Aiims too doesn't use it! Wasting lacs of ₹s in buying this drug is criminal waste of money! Die to the unnecessary propaganda a big well organized racket is flourishing wherein rogue gangs are minting money by keeping ramdesevir propaganda on! The above is a personal opinion based on facts and figures; kindly do your own reasearch & decide?

    Unproven and not used in many countries is marketed as life saver which has the mortality rate of 12% for an infection which has mortality rate of just 0.003% is foolish decision. Good news is Dr Bishwaroop's NICE has set up care Center in Ahmedabad with govt approval. Patients are getting cured within 4 days without any medicines even critical are treated there without masks or gloves but touched and comforted which heals them faster. Karnataka govt should invite them to end covid menace in the state and defeat common enemy of people and economy the hidden agenda people who wants to destroy India.

    Do you believe in Gujarat miracles are happening. As you know about remedesvir being a failed drug you must know that even in mild case recovery in 4 days is impossible.

    Is Remdesivir recommended vaccine for Covid???????........It was developed for some other disease before Covid started. Is this govt just unloading its rotting stock to fool people and not buying fresh new effective vaccine for Covid. After all govt is very much concerned about spending and wasting money unnecessarily if it serves people’s imaginations.
