Bolsonaro said Brazil hopes that use of the hydroxychloroquine will help in treatment of covid19.
What is Hydroxychloroquine:
Hydroxychloroquine is an antimalarial drug. It treats malaria by killing the parasites that cause the disease.
However, it’s believed that this drug affects how your immune system works, which may be a benefit in lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis.
INDIA leading manufacturer:
India is the biggest manufacturer of hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malarial drug that is being touted as ‘game-changer’ in the fight against COVID-19 and is being aggressively sought by US President Donald Trump.
India manufactures 70% of the world’s supply of hydroxychloroquine, according toC (IPA) secretary-general Sudarshan Jain.
The country has a production capacity of 40 tonnes of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) every month, implying 20 crore tablets of 200 mg each.
On March 25, India banned export of hydroxychloroquine in the midst of views in some quarters that the drug could be used to fight COVID-19. India is the largest exporter of the drug. The ban was partially lifted on Tuesday.
“The decision was taken only after the panel got enough evidence from the companies that we have enough stocks available in the country,” said one of the persons. India is one of the biggest manufacturers of the drug.
Apart from the US, about 30 countries, including South Asian neighbours and key global partners in West Asia, had asked India to lift the ban on hydroxychloroquine exports
“In view of the humanitarian aspects of the pandemic, it has been decided that India would licence paracetamol and HCQ in appropriate quantities to all our neighbouring countries who are dependent on our capabilities,” said MEA spokesperson Anurag Srivastava. “We will also be supplying these essential drugs to some nations who have been particularly badly affected by the pandemic.”
