The city has a significant stock of essential drugs, including antiviral, anticoagulant, antibacterial and antipyretic drugs.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Moscow doctors have accumulated extensive experience in treating patients with coronavirus infections. Its constant study allowed us to form clear schemes of the necessary drug therapy for patients with different severity of the disease. All necessary medicines are given to the townspeople free of charge.
“All the necessary medications are given to the patient by a doctor free of charge when visiting at home or in an outpatient CT center. The city has formed a significant stock of necessary medicines, they are available both in the pharmacy warehouse of the Health Department and in medical organizations. Among them are drugs for antiviral, anticoagulant, antibacterial and antipyretic therapy. More than 36 thousand people have received medicines for the treatment of coronavirus infection at home since the beginning of October. They were given over 82 thousand packages of drugs “, – said
Anastasia Rakova, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Social Development.
The operational headquarters for the control and monitoring of the situation with coronavirus in Moscow draws attention to the fact that patients need to strictly adhere to the treatment regimen developed by the doctor. If the patient, for example, independently reduces the dose of the drug, there is a risk that the proper therapeutic effect will not be achieved, and the virus, on the contrary, will become resistant to the drug. Excess doses are also unacceptable. Only a doctor can adequately assess the patient’s condition and adjust the therapy.
List of medicines for COVID-19 patients undergoing treatment at home, was expanded by the decision of the Mayor of Moscow. In accordance with the recommendations of the Russian Ministry of Health, outpatients receive the antiviral drugs Areplivir and Coronavir. To prevent possible complications, patients with a moderate course of the disease are prescribed anticoagulants (“Dabigatrana etexilat”, “Rivaroxaban”, “Apixaban”). Outpatients who have been diagnosed with pneumonia receive pulse oximeters free of charge by the doctor’s decision. These devices provide instantaneous assessments of blood oxygen saturation, a key metric for assessing COVID-19.
