Gilead Sciences Gifts 25,600 Vials of Remdesivir to India | India News


NEW DELHI: India thanked US biopharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences on Saturday for giving away another 25,600 vials of Remdesivir, which is used to treat Covid-19 patients.
“Grateful to @GileadSciences for the gift of another 25,600 vials of Remdesivir that arrived in Mumbai this morning,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MEA) spokesperson said in a tweet.

Gilead Sciences, the developer of the antiviral drug Remdesivir, had shipped more than 1.5 lakh of vials to India on Wednesday.
Last month, Gilead’s spokesman told Sputnik that it will provide all its licensing partners in India with technical support for the addition of new manufacturing facilities, but will not send any more specialists there.
India reported 4,01,078 new Covid-19 cases and 4,187 deaths in the last 24 hours, according to the Union Health Ministry.
