coronavirus covid-19, usa, in the world

MOSCOW, Jun 29 – RIA News. The American biopharmaceutical company Gilead set the price of remdesivir, which is being tested as a possible treatment for COVID-19, in the developed countries in the amount of $ 390 per ampoule, the company’s website reported.

The antiviral drug remdesivir was urgently approved May 1 in the United States for the treatment of COVID-19. At one time, it was developed as part of the fight against Ebola, but then failed to prove its effectiveness. He later showed efficacy in treating SARS and MERS infections. The drug is produced by the American biopharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences.

The company said that under normal conditions, the cost of the drug would be estimated based on its importance. According to company information, the first research results of the National Institute of Allergology and Infectious Diseases showed that remdesivir shortens the recovery period to four days.

“Based on the example of the United States, an earlier discharge from the hospital will save her about $ 12 thousand per patient,” the company’s head Daniel O’Day said in a statement.

Thus, the importance of remdesivir is not only in its benefit to the patient with coronavirus, but also in its benefit to the healthcare system.

“We decided to evaluate remdesivir far below its significance. To ensure wide and fair access during an urgent global need, we set the price for the governments of developed countries at $ 390 per ampoule,” the company said.

It is noted that based on the example of current treatment, patients with COVID-19 usually need a 5-day course using six ampoules of the drug, for a total cost of $ 2,340.

The report said that to support developing countries, the company entered into contracts with manufacturers of generics.

“This alternative solution was created to ensure that all countries of the world can access treatment,” the company said.

On March 11, the World Health Organization announced an outbreak of a new coronavirus infection with COVID-19 pandemic. According to the latest WHO data, more than 9.8 million cases of infection have been identified in the world, over 495 thousand people have died.
