Bhopal, April 14
A total of 3,890 units of Remdesivir injection have been supplied in the state on Wednesday. At the same time, 275 metric tons of oxygen is available in various hospitals.
Controller, Food and Drug Administration P. Narhari informed that out of the Remdesivir injections received, one thousand MGM are being given to Government Medical College Indore and the remaining 2890 to private hospitals. The manufacturers of the injection have been instructed to increase their supply in Madhya Pradesh. Also, inspection is being done by drug inspectors for the illegal sale of injections, selling at prices higher than MRP and black marketing.
Narhari said that its manufacturers and distributors are constantly being approached to ensure an uninterrupted supply of oxygen. Arrangements are being made to make available the hospitals first by limiting the industrial use of oxygen. Also, to prevent wastage of oxygen in hospitals, the guidelines received from the Government of India have been conveyed to all concerned. Permitted oxygen vehicles have also been given ambulance status to speed up the transport of oxygen.
