Export of drugs used for COVID-19 treatment resumed

The Drug Administration of Vietnam (DAV) under the Ministry of Health (MoH) has decided to allow enterprises to export drugs used to treat COVID-19 after a month-long suspension.

The disease situation has improved so the export of the drugs can be resumed, it said.

Earlier, on April 16, the DAV issued a document requesting enterprises engaged in manufacturing and exporting of medicines to suspend the export of 37 items to ensure there would be enough for domestic use.

The drugs were considered by the MoH as necessary for isolation and treatment of COVID-19.

They include antibiotics, fluids, dialysis solutions and antipyretic namely Immunoglobulin 5 percent, Vancomycin 500 mg, ceftriaxone, levotloxacin 250mg/50ml, and ceftazidime./.
