Stop Shortage of Emergency Covid Medicines in Delhi

0 have signed. Let’s get to 150,000!

Delhi has recorded the biggest jump in its daily Covid tally with 25,462 fresh cases on Sunday (18th April), with a positivity rate of nearly 30%-- meaning almost every third sample being tested in the city is turning out to be positive.

With such a sharp rise in the number of covid cases, the city is running out of medicines such as Fabiflu and Favipravir which are used to treat Covid-19. People are unable to find these drugs at pharmacies and vendors say they have not received their supply in many days. There is also an acute shortage of Remdesivir injection in Delhi NCR as a result of which, there are long queues at medicine stores and SOS messages requesting these drugs are desperately being circulated on social media. There are also instances in which people are being overcharged for these medicines and hoarding is being done.

It is important that the confidence of the public is restored in the health care system of Delhi and this acute shortage of emergency covid medicines is tackled at the earliest.

I urge for all the pharmacies in Delhi should be immediately supplied with the stock of covid medicines including Remdesivir injection, Fabiflu, Favipravir, Doxycycline, Ivermectin and other life saving covid medicines. The messages of people from Delhi running from pillar to post for these medicines are terrifying and I request the Chief Minister of Delhi and the Health Minister of Delhi to intervene at the earliest and supply the medical vendors and pharmacies with these medicines at the earliest.
