Goa to Start Administering Remdesivir to COVID-19 Patients

Goa's Health Ministry on Friday, 7 August received 1,008 vials of Remdesivir from pharma major Cipla. Remdesivir is an anti-viral drug which is administered to COVID-19 patients and results in faster recovery, state Health Minister Vishwajit Rane said.

"This anti-viral drug will be beneficial in suppressing the viral replication of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. Uncontrollable viral replication is often responsible for tissue damage and deaths in patients infected with the virus," Rane said in a statement.

The minister also said that the anti-viral drug will be administered to moderately and severely-ill patients suffering from COVID-19 and would help to suppress the viral replication of SARS-CoV-2.
