Health Secretary is Working on Model that Could Implemented:Rane

Health minister Vishwajit Rane on Friday said the state has already procured 30 vials of Remdesivir, an antiviral drug that is allowed for emergency use and can be considered for treatment of Covid-19 patients with moderate infection.
“We have now put in a requisition for 1,000 vials of Remdesivir costing Rs 35 lakh,” Rane said. “More medicines are on the way. Their validity is three months. We will see how much we can procure and how we will manage the stock.”

The state government is also exploring the possibility of appointing a single agency to manage all  covid care centres to ensure that patients are given better  facilities, such as provision of nutritious food and housekeeping and laundry services. “The health secretary is working on a model that could be implemented,” Rane said.

He further said that the state is considering stocking 2,000 plasma packs in the plasma bank, in line with its plan to commence plasma therapy for critically ill Covid-19 patients from next week. The government is in the process of recruiting technical manpower for the purpose.
