New Delhi: The PM Modi government has launched a campaign to combat the shortage of medicine for the Black Fungus or Mucoramycosis infection. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has taken the responsibility of arranging the drug for black fungus which has taken the form of an epidemic after the coronavirus pandemic.
An injection called liposomal amphotericin B is used in the treatment of black fungus. PM Modi has instructed the officials that if they get this medicine in any corner of the world, then it should be brought to India. The central government has also given license to five more companies to manufacture liposomal amphotericin B.
PM Modi is constantly talking to senior officials about the availability of black fungus and liposomal amphotericin B injections. According to government sources, PM Modi has clearly told the officials that in any country of the world this drug can be found, from where it should be brought to India immediately. In this, the help of the existing Indian embassies is being taken around the world. Indian embassies are searching for liposomal ampotresirin B in their respective countries.
Now the results of these efforts of PM Modi are bearing fruit. The US has been helped by a company called Corridor Sciences. Let us know that this company is also providing Remedisvir to India. Now this company is also making Amphotericin B available to India. So far 121,000 vials or vials have been sent to India. 85,000 vials soon to arrive.
