The creation of the domestic therapy that allows to interrupt the development of coronavirus at the initial stage is at the final stage. This is reported by TASS with reference to Mikhail Murashko, the Minister of Health of the Russian Federation.
“So far, unfortunately, no one has it [a cure for covid], although we are close to the completion of a drug that stops the course of the disease at the initial stage of infection,” the minister is quoted as saying.
Murashko said that he would specify what drug he was talking about after his tests have been completed. As he also noted, all medicines for coronavirus infection are now available in Russia.
“There is probably only one foreign medicine the supply of which became limited, because manufacturers physically do not have time to produce enough for the whole world. We have created an alternative drug. It is necessary to have a domestic product line,” the head of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation said in an interview with the publication.
