Why there was a decrease in demand for Remedisvir
Those associated with the pharma industry believe that since December 2020, the demand for Remedisvir had come down due to the decrease in cases of Kovid-19. For this reason, the companies making this medicine had reduced its production. In the months of January and February also, the production was much less than before. Now, when its demand has increased once again, companies have stepped up production. Both the government and the company are claiming that conditions will improve a lot in the next four-five days.

How long does the duration of the drug Remedesivir last?
Let me tell you that the duration of the drug Remedesivir is 6 to 8 months. The first wave of corona, doctors say, was the demand for remadecevir was limited to metros and large cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Vengaluru, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Surat, Jaipur and Lucknow, but in the second wave the demand for this drug ranged from big city to small cities and It is also happening in the village and countryside. Due to this, the company making it is not able to supply according to the demand.
What do you say doctor
Dr. DK Gupta, chairman of Noida Felix Hospital, says in a conversation with News18 Hindi. ‘Remadecivir is an anti-viral drug. It mainly reduces weakness. If this medicine is given between the initial symptoms of corona and the initial two-three days, then it is an effective medicine for the patient. When the corona patient reaches the second week, then this medicine does not prove to be as effective. Death rate also cannot be reduced with this medicine. This medicine is effective, it cannot be denied, but it is not that the patient cannot be saved by not having or not having this medicine?

Why is Corona so useful?
At the same time, some other doctors believe that Remedesvir is a very useful medicine for corona, but it should be used according to the need. High end antiviral drugs should not be used without medical advice. Experts believe that 70-75 out of 100 cormedia injection works only on corona patients. This medicine can be given to a patient whose lung has been affected due to corona disease. If a patient needs a ventilator, then remadecivir is not given.
