Russia offered the PH 'unlimited supply' of Cycloferon for Covid-19 patients

Indeed the ties between Russia and the Philippines is in a different level, all because of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s desire to be friend of the  former.

The said friendship is beginning to bare fruit, as both countries are so busy in battling the coronavirus disease or COVID-19, Russian Ambassador to Manila Igor Khovaev said that Russia will help the country in this fight.

Khovaev also said Russian pharmaceutical company Polysan has offered to donate “an unlimited supply” of Cycloferon for Covid-19 patients in the Philippines.

He said the medicine “has proven effective against a wide variety of viral infections” and that the same drug was given to Indonesia early April.
“We officially conveyed the relevant offer to the Philippine partners. As far as I know, it has been under consideration,” he said.
Khovaev stressed these efforts reflect the improving ties between the two countries.

“Trials and challenges may not be particularly pleasurable but apart from all hardships and ordeals, the Covid-19 crisis provides us with new opportunities,” he said.
“I am happy and proud to state that the cooperation and friendship between Russians and Filipinos is a real fact, not propaganda. Our partnership based on common humane values has endured a stiff test with flying colors, thereby creating unprecedented preconditions for developing and strengthening a fruitful collaboration in the post coronavirus period,” he added.
