Coronavirus positive report, Aadhar card mandatory for purchasing two drugs in Maharashtra


Maharashtra Food and Drug Administration have made doctor prescription, consent form, Covid-19 positive report, Aadhar card and details of the purchaser mandatory for purchasing two drugs in the state.

The two drugs are antiviral drug remdisivir and the anti-in flammatory medicine Tocilizumab.

The decision was taken by the state’s food and drug administration  after there were reports that some people who actually don’t the drugs were buying these drugs and then reselling them at higher prices to those who need the medicines.

Now, people will need to show these documents before buying these drugs from the druggists, which will help FDA department to keep the record of the ones buying it, said FDA minister Rajendra Shingne.
