The oral COVID-19 medicine VV116 also named Mindewei, has started being delivered to community hospitals in Shanghai Pudong New Area. The drug has been added to the national medical reimbursement list, meaning people will pay less than 100 yuan per box.

The order quantity of oral pill delivered to the community hospital this time was 5 bottles in total because the number of patients with COVID-19 infection at the fever sentinel recently was very small, and the number of patients received in a week was only about 1 or 2.

Moreover, there were three kinds of COVID-19 drugs from home and abroad in the fever clinic pharmacy, and the drugs were very sufficient. Health authorities will open channels to deliver drugs within 24 hours if community hospitals need them.
