The number of coronavirus cases in Maharashtra is rapidly increasing due to which the relatives of the patients in the hospital are also suffering. 

The state has been facing surge in number of covid cases due to which hospitals are facing shortage of beds, oxygen and Remdesivir anti-viral drug used to treat covid patients. 

Relatives of COVID-19 patients in Pune on Thursday staged sit-in protest outside Collector's office demanding the supply of anti-viral drug Remdesivir, also used for the treatment of coronavirus. Against this backdrop, MP Amol Kolhe has appealed to the citizens. He also clarified that Remdesivir is not a life-saving drug and suggested alternative medicine.

The government and the administration are making every effort to streamline the supply of Remdesivir. But the supply is not sufficient because of the rapidly increasing cases. Medications recommended by the Covid Task Force can be given to patients until Remdesivir supply is restored.

Once again i would like to reiterate that Remdesivir is not a life-saving drug. Therefore, doctors should take adequate care while giving it to patients. In addition, these injections should be given only to patients in need by using the available stock mindfully, said Dr. Amol Kolhe.

Doctors of the Covid task force in Maharashtra have repeatedly said one thing.  Remdesivir is not a life-saving drug.  Remdesivir can reduce the viral load of the virus in the body, but it does not save the patient's life. The patient's stay in the hospital will be reduced for a while, but this injection is not life-saving, Amol Kolhe said through the video.

But if Remdesivir is not available, if nothing is available, then the Covid Task Force has suggested an alternative drug, Favipiravir.It should be given orally to the patient. It is available in sufficient quantity in Maharashtra. The government and the administration are doing their best to streamline the supply of Remdesivir , ”said Amol Kolhe.
