Lucknow: In a huge respite to COVID-19 patients in Uttar Pradesh, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday announced free Remdesivir injections to such patients admitted in government as well as private hospitals in the state.

The state government will arrange the injections for public hospitals, however, private hospitals will have to buy Remdesivir from the companies and the market itself.

In case, Remdesivir is not available in a private hospital and it is essential for the survival of the patient, the District Magistrate (DM) and Chief Medical Officer (CMO) will have to provide the injection for the patient.

The chief minister has also ordered that adequate vials of Remdesivir should be made available to various districts as per the demand. If required, private hospitals should also be provided Remdesivir at fixed rates.

Yogi Adityanath warns

Yogi Adityanath also warned that the National Security Act (NSA) would be invoked against people who are found to be involved in hoarding and black marketing of COVID medicines.

Every day, one Remdesivir vial will be given to patients of non-invasive ventilation beds of private and government hospitals and medical colleges.

At present, around 5,500 patients are being given this injection on a daily basis. The distribution of this injection is being made through Director General, Medical Education and Training, and Uttar Pradesh Medical Supplies Corporation Limited.

Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh on Monday reported 249 coronavirus deaths, the highest single-day fatality count so far, as 33,574 fresh cases pushed the state's infection tally to 11,20,176.
