Amid complaints of shortage of key medicines prescribed to coronavirus patients in Maharashtra and black market rates going as high as Rs 50,000, the state government has tightened rules for purchasing these drugs. People will now have to show their Aadhaar card, COVID-19 test certificate, doctor’s prescription and phone number to get the medicine.
Long queues were seen at medicine shops and suppliers in the state, as people complain that the drugs Remdesivir and Tocilizumab are out of stock everywhere.
