Russian pharmaceutical firm offers to donate free medicine for treatment of COVID-19 in PH




The President’s independent foreign policy is now bearing fruit.
Amidst the spreading of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the news of shortage of test kits, masks, and necessary medicines it is always welcome to have one when help is needed.

Russian Ambassador to the Philippines Igor Khovaev said one of the leading Russian pharmaceutical company is ready to donate medicine for the treatment of the coronavirus disease or COVID-19 in the Philippines.

Khovaev said Russian company Polysan is offering free medicine they developed called "Cycloferon" which reportedly has been effective in curing the symptoms of those infected with the viral illness in Russia and China.
Cycloferon they explain is an over the counter medicine used to treat patients with major viral and bacterial infections, such as influenza, acute respiratory viral infections, and tuberculosis. Ambassador Khovaev called the drug "highly-effective" and said that in China, its effects are " very, very encouraging, and very positive."

"It's offered as donation just to extend the hand of help to our Filipino partners so now this offer is under consideration in Manila,” he said, adding that Russia has been successful in containing and treating its COVID-19 patients.
As of March 12, there are 28 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Russia.
"To date, there is no specific medicine recommended to prevent or treat the new coronavirus," the World Health Organization said in its website."However, those infected with the virus should receive appropriate care to relieve and treat symptoms, and those with severe illness should receive optimized supportive care."
