The retail price tag for the drug aimed at protecting against COVID-19 will be more than 12.2 thousand rubles. At the same time, he clarified that the retail price of the medicine should not differ too much from that provided by state supplies.
One package of the drug for coronavirus infection will contain 40 tablets of 200 mg each. Drugs should be dispensed in pharmacies only if there is an appropriate prescription signed by a doctor.
