Government’s Big Decision Amid Corona Crisis, Ban On Hydroxychloroquine Drug Removed
The Indian government has taken a major step towards the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine, which is considered effective for coronavirus patients. The government has partially lifted the ban on exports of this drug. According to the Ministry of External Affairs, the government has partially lifted the ban on the export of hydroxychloroquine and paracetamol drugs. This decision has been taken on humanitarian grounds. These medicines will be sent to the countries that are expected to help India.
On the continuous appeal from the world, the Ministry of External Affairs says that at the time of this catastrophe, we hope that the world will fight together. We have also taken steps in this direction, the example of which is that we have saved citizens of different countries from many countries. At present, it has not been decided how much of the drug will be supplied to which country.
However, the export will be done on the basis of stock availability after meeting domestic requirements. Two days earlier, US President Donald Trump requested India to send a stock of hydroxychloroquine to fight against Kovid-19. Trump said that this drug had produced good results in his country.
The Foreign Ministry also says that medicines will be sent to some countries badly affected by Corona. We dismiss any speculation and political color on this matter. Scientists have described the hydroxychloroquine given in malaria as effective in fighting corona.
An official said that while the ban on the export of hydroxychloroquine drugs has been partially lifted, the paracetamol export ban will continue. He further said that the demand made by other countries will be approved only on the basis of meeting domestic needs and availability of hydroxychloroquine.
Troubled over not getting medicines, America threatened India to bear the consequences
Earlier, US President Donald Trump said that he would be surprised if India does not allow the export of hydroxychloroquine to the US, despite the request. Last week, Trump said he had sought help from Prime Minister Narendra Modi to allow India to sell hydroxychloroquine in the US. Hours before this, India had banned the export of this malaria drug.
The drug has been allowed to be used to treat coronavirus infection in the US among an increasing number of patients. Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday, “I would be surprised if he (would) do it because you know that India has had a very good deal with America.” Hydroxychloroquine, a drug used in the treatment of malaria, is being used in the treatment of coronavirus infection. Trump said that India has been taking advantage of US trade regulations for many years, and would be surprised if New Delhi prohibits the export of hydroxychloroquine.
