MoPH contacts drug producing company
Qatar’s Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) has contacted the company producing the new drug announced against the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) in the US in order to get it as soon as it is available commercially, a top official said.
Dr Abdullatif al-Khal, co-chair of the National Pandemic Preparedness Committee at the MoPH and head of Infectious Diseases at Hamad Medical Corporation explained that the new drug has been initially approved for use in severe cases of Covid-19 in the US and for research authorities to test it.“The drug proved its effectiveness in reducing the period of symptoms to only five days, but it is yet to reduce the number of deaths,” he pointed out.________________________________________
