Crackdown on Remdesivir hoarders

Pointing to rampant black marketing of anti-Covid experimental drug remdesivir, Drug Controller VG Somani on Tuesday directed the state drug controllers to crack down on hoarders and ensure the medicine is not sold above MRP

The single day surge in new cases was well over 20,000 for the fifth straight day with new cases over 24 hours being 22,252 and total fatalities breaching the 20,000 mark with a cumulative 20,160 Covid deaths. The last 24 hours saw 467 deaths.

Even as the cases rose, the government data showed that the overall recoveries per million people in India are 315.8 and far exceed overall active cases per million population which are 186.3. Analysis further show that the trend of recoveries beating active cases holds across even the highest Covid burden states.

In Delhi, recoveries per million are 3,497.1 as against 1,242.9 active cases per million. Corresponding figures for other states with maximum Covid cases are Maharashtra (per million recoveries outstrip per million active cases with 869.5 to 661.6 cases, respectively); Tamil Nadu (753 recoveries per million vis a vis 529.8 active cases per million); Haryana (480.9 recoveries as against 140.4 active cases per million); Gujarat (358.3 recoveries per million over 115.7 active cases per million).

Same trends run through Rajasthan, Odisha and UP.
