India To Allow Exports Of Anti-Malaria Drug Hydroxychloroquine

In a tweet, he said, "Extraordinary times require even closer cooperation between friends". Thank you to India and the people of India for their decision on hydroxychloroquine. "Will not be forgotten!" India is supplying the drug to the US and several other countries hit by the pandemic. "I thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi andthe people of India for such timely help to the people of Brazil", Brazil president Bolsonaro said in his address to the nation on Wednesday. The United States alone accounts for 4.3 lakh infections and 14,700 fatalities.

"India shall do everything possible to help humanity's fight against COVID-19", the prime minster said.

On March 28, 2020, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave an emergency approval to the USA government to distribute millions of doses of anti-malarial drugs to hospitals across the country, saying it is worth the risk of trying unproven treatments to slow the progression of the disease caused by the novel coronavirus in seriously ill patients.

Worldwide the COVID-19 virus has infected 1.4 million people and killed more than 82,000.

On Wednesday, US President Donald Trump thanked PM Modi and the people of India for lifting curbs on the export of hydroxychloroquine. "He was great. He was really good", Donald Trump told American channel Fox News.

After our telephone conversation, He allowed the shipment to Brazil of a load of inputs for the production of hydroxychloroquine.

India had banned the export of anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine on March 25 with instant impact to guarantee ample availability of the drugs inside the nation. "The doctors, the lab technicians, the companies are coming up with things that I hope in the very near future are going to be very, very special, very important", he said.

"I don't like that decision".

Trump has strongly touted hydroxychloroquine as a coronavirus treatment although many scientists are urging caution until larger trials show whether it is safe and effective.

"I spoke to him (Narendra Modi) Sunday morning and said that we appreciate that you are allowing our supply (of Hydroxychloroquine) to come out".

India's neighbouring countries, such as Sri Lanka and Nepal, have also put in orders for the drug. He said the government has been assessing the quantities that can be exported while ensuring internal demand is met.

But what triggered a bunch of op-eds in both countries was Trump saying that India might face retaliation if it won't release the drug. So it is not something like.You know we are doing vaccines.

Trump and Modi enjoy a personal friendship as reflected in the president joining the prime minister at the "Howdy, Modi!" event in Houston last September. He is honest when he says that he will not forget India's gesture. And so it's one of several medicines, including the painkiller acetaminophen, that India restricted exports of when the country went into lockdown.

He stated "After my direct talks with the Indian PM we'll get the uncooked materials to proceed our manufacturing of hydroxychloroquine for the therapy of COVID-19".
