Tears and Desperation for Remdesivir in Hyderabad as Shortage Leads to Chaos, Black Marketing
For the first time in three days, Shaikh Waheed heaved a sigh of relief as he tightly held a thermocol box containing six vials of Remdesivir- the anti-viral injection used to treat severe Covid patients. Waheed and his wife have been shuttling between private hospitals to look after three family members battling for their lives.
'I managed to get only six vials of Remdesivir for Rs 20,400, but I need 18 more. How will I arrange them in a short span of time? For now, I am going to give it to my sister who is critical', Waheed said as he flipped through prescriptions to show a list of medicines prescribed by doctors.
