People of China remembered India due to pile of dead bodies from Corona, Chinese are looking for medicines made here

Covid-19 China: There is a furore due to Coronavirus in China. There the corona infection has spread to such an extent in many big cities that there are piles of dead bodies. There is no space left to admit patients in hospitals. Many patients have to be treated outside the ward. China approved two Covid-19 antivirals this year – Pfizer’s Paxlovid and Chinese firm Genuine Biotech’s Azvudine Covid-19, both of which are available only in a few hospitals. Limited supply and exorbitant prices of medicines have forced people to opt for cheaper but illegally imported generic medicines from India.

China’s pharmaceutical market has reportedly turned into a black market for generic COVID-19 drugs as people there grapple with an unprecedented outbreak with limited supplies of approved antivirals. Many people are looking for cheap medicines to protect themselves and this shortage is being overcome by taking generic medicines made in India. However, these generic drugs are not approved by the Chinese government and selling them is a punishable offence.

As South China Morning reported, topics such as ‘Indian anti-Covid generic drugs sold for 1,000 yuan per box’ are trending on the Chinese social media platform Weibo, with people discussing ways to acquire these drugs. Please tell that 1,000 yuan is equal to 144 US dollars and according to the Indian currency, this amount is not very much.
