Negotiations still ongoing for COVID drugs


    Procurement of COVID treatments Paxlovid and Molnupiravir is still in the negotiation phase.

    Responding to question in Parliament, Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh reminded that government is attempting to get the drugs from the manufacturer and through CARICOM.

    He also explained that there is no restriction on pharmacies importing the drugs, except that the manufacturers are only doing business with sovereigns.

    Mr Deyalsingh said this is the same practice manufacturers have been using in distributing COVID-19 vaccines.
