The Ministry of Health of Russia allowed the use of two drugs for coronavirus in outpatient treatment. Previously, these drugs could only be taken in a hospital setting.

According to information "Interfax”, We are talking about drugs developed on the basis of favipiravir. The first coronavirus drug, Avifavir, was registered in Russia in May 2020. Then, in June, another drug, Areplevir, was registered. After that, in early July, the Ministry of Health also approved the drug Coronavir.

Favipiravir-based drugs were previously studied in Japan for the treatment of influenza. But Russian scientists have found that Coronavir is the only medicine that fights not with the complications of the coronavirus, but with the virus itself.
