Medicines have risen in price in Russia amid a pandemic
Drug suppliers in Russia began to raise drug prices. According to experts, this is due to increased costs for manufacturers of imported components. However, they do not expect further increase in the market.
According to Kommersant, due to the announced self-isolation regime, sales in pharmacies fell by 20%. Citizens stockpiled a few months in advance. In case of further price increases, demand will fall even more.
The situation allowed suppliers to cut off some of their customers and better cope with the rush demand, which increased by 50% in mid-March. However, now it is falling and pharmacies will have to restrain the cost of drugs so as not to lose in sales.
