DRDO’s anti-corona drug 2DG was released for emergency use on Monday. Now these can be given to patients. During this, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan were present. This medicine is in powder form. This drug will first be given to patients admitted to DRDO Covid Hospital in Delhi.
DRDO chief G.K. Satish Reddy said that the total production would be around 10,000 in a week. Today AIIMS, AFMS and DRDO are delivering in hospitals. The rest will be given to the states in the next phase. There is still some delay. 2D drugs will be available at all places from the first week of June.
During clinical research, 5.85 gram pouches of 2-DG medicine were prepared. Each of its pouches is dissolved in water in the morning and evening and given to the patients. The results were good. Rapid recovery was seen in patients who were given medication. On this basis, the Drug Controller General of India has approved the emergency use of this drug.
Currently, this medicine will be given in hospitals only on the advice of a doctor. At present, only emergency use has been approved. Until this drug is approved for general use, it is not possible to come on the market.
