Interchem, pharmaceutical company in Odessa, donated 200,000 doses of an antiviral drug to border guards and medical workers to prevent infection with coronavirus. Interchem CEO Anatoliy Reder told Interfax-Ukraine that an agreement was reached during a meeting with the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) Oleksiy Danilov.

The main parameters of our proposal are that we offer help and help for free. There are services that are the first to deal with patients who are infected with viruses and have high infection risks. These are border guards, who are staying at the entrance to the country, and employees of infectious hospitals. We will deliver a drug for prevention to State Border Guard Service to all regions of Ukraine and to doctors and medical staff in all infectious hospitals, which are defined as basic medical facilities for hospitalization of those infected with Chinese coronavirus

At the same time, Reder said that this is not about treatment, but exclusively about prevention. “We do not pretend to have a panacea. We do not say that we have a cure for the Chinese coronavirus in our hands. However, we know for sure that the use of the drug gives an additional chance not to get sick,” he said. Reder said that this drug has a proven immunomodulatory and antiviral effect.

Interchem is one of the leading pharmaceutical companies in Ukraine. It was founded in 1992. It is the only Ukrainian manufacturer of medicines for hard and cancer patients, as well as one of the drug suppliers under the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria programs.
