The Chief State Sanitary Inspector, Nurmat Otabekov, explained what medicines people in Uzbekistan were taking to protect themselves from coronavirus.
The Ministry of Health and the Agency for Sanitary-Epidemiological Wellbeing have developed procedures for the treatment of patients with mild coronavirus at home. According to the relevant recommendations, patients can take “Azithromycin”, “Plaquenil”, “Lopinavir/Ritonavir”, “Remdesivir”, “Umifenovir” and “Favipiravir”. “These medications are intended for prophylactics,” Otabekov said.
He stressed that all the above-mentioned drugs should be prescribed exclusively by medical personnel.
