New Delhi, May 3 (PTI) The Delhi government has developed a portal for proper distribution and supply of Remdesivir injection to stockists, distributors and hospitals for needy patients, according to an order.

The city government's drug control department has asked all stockists and distributors dealing in Remdesivir injection to update their data on the portal – cfwcst.delhi.gov.in/DHB/Login.aspx -- daily.

Remdesivir is one of the most sought-after drugs for the treatment of Covid symptoms and part of the country's treatment protocol.

The surge in Covid-19 cases has led to a shortage of Remdesivir, prompting the government to ban its exports and urge manufacturers to increase production. PTI GVS TIR TIR
