Zydus Cadila launches Corona drug Remdesivir, find out how much it costs

Zydus Cadila has launched the most effective Remdesivir used to treat corona.

Pharma company Zydus Cadila has launched the cheapest generic version of Gilead Sciences' antiviral drug Ramdasivir. According to news agency Reuters, Zydus has priced it at 2,800 ($ 37.44) per 100 mg bottle.

During clinical trials in hospitals around the world, it was found that the duration of Remdesivir corona symptoms could be reduced from 15 days to 11 days. 

This has also increased the demand for Remdesivir. However, experts warn that this is not an effective treatment. 

But in the absence of any medicine, doctors are prescribing this medicine for corona patients in India. This has led to increased demand in Delhi and other cities in India.
