Japan sends Avigan to support PH's Covid-19 patients


Good News!!!

Friendship with Japan is reassuring when it included the Philippines to be part of the anti viral drug that is seen to be of high effectivity against he novel coronavirus 2019 disease.

The Philippine government just received the anti-viral medicine Avigan, whose generic name is favipiravir.


It was turned over to the Department of Health (DOH) on August 6 and will be allotted for 100 patients who are part of the Avigan clinical trial.

"Japan hopes that this ongoing cooperation with the Philippines would further contribute to the advancement of clinical research to contain the Covid-19 pandemic," the Japanese embassy in Manila said in a statement.

It was revealed by some researches that Avigan, developed by a subsidiary of Japan-based Fujifilm Holdings Corp., is seen as an effective drug in treating Covid-19.

It has drawn interest from many countries for its potential to counter viral replication.

The Japanese government reports that Avigan has showed big promise in treating COVID-19 positive patients as some of them successfully recovered after taking it.

However, health experts cautioned against the use of Avigan because the drug has one dangerous potential side effect -- birth defects.

The arrival of the drug- Avigan  is part of Japan's emergency grant aid to countries severely affected by the pandemic.

Each recipient government acknowledged Avigan’s proper usage and prescription in view of its known adverse side effects, the embassy said.
