In October, reports of problems with obtaining free medicines appeared in the media in seven more regions, including Yakutia.

Regions are purchasing drugs for coronavirus for outpatients using the government's reserve fund. In 2020-2021, 15,7 billion rubles were allocated for these purposes. Also, the Cabinet of Ministers allocated an additional 5,2 billion rubles for the purchase of drugs for outpatients with COVID. Yakutia was also among the recipients of additional funds.

A representative of the Ministry of Health told Kommersant that there are regions in Russia with a low stock of drugs for coronavirus and added that the department, together with the Ministry of Industry and Trade, is taking measures for the urgent purchase of drugs.
