The principles of treatment of COVID-19 with the Remdesivir drug  determined

ArmInfo.By the order of the RA Minister of Health Arsen Torosyan of August 11, the regulations on the implementation of the treatment of patients with COVID-19 with  the drug Remdesivir in the repurposed medical institutions were  approved.

 According to the press service of the ministry, a form of  "Informed consent" of the patient about the treatment with this drug,  the form of the "Individual registration card of the patient",  principles of treatment with the drug "Remdesivir" for patients with  severe course of coronavirus were also established.  To note, the  drug Remdesivir was imported by the Indian pharmaceutical company  Hetero Labs Limited, to which the pharmaceutical company Gilead  Science issued a permit to manufacture the drug. The Ministry of  Health of Armenia purchased 5020 ampoules of this drug, and received  another 600 ampoules as humanitarian aid.

The drug "Remdesivir" is prescribed in a hospital setting as directed  by a doctor to patients with severe or extremely severe COVID-19  disease. After reviewing the medication instructions and possible  side effects of antiviral treatment, the patient or his legal  representative signs a consent form for treatment.  The main goal of  drug treatment is to prevent further progression of the disease,  reverse development of clinical symptoms, and improve laboratory and  instrumental data. Treatment may be more effective if the virus is  eliminated more quickly (negative PCR test result).

As a reminder, there is currently no approved World Health  Organization guideline for the special antiviral treatment of  COVID-19.

As of August 12, 40,794 cases of coronavirus were confirmed in  Armenia, 33,492 people recovered, 806 died.
